Mark Millar, who wrote the original miniseries, has revealed that he is contacting the Hangover star's representatives with a view to casting him as protagonist Johnny Bolt.
"We've got a great director, a great screenplay and as of Christmas we'll have time to start prepping this sucker. Who we gonna call? Bradley Cooper," said Millar.
"I am literally calling up his guys tomorrow and want to secure him as Johnny Bolt. It's about time he did a super-movie and having him as a likeable supervillain in a super-heist flick sounds about perfect.
"He's our ideal choice and we're going to pursue this tomorrow."
Supercrooks follows a group of supervillains who band together to pull off a heist in Spain where there are no heroes to stop them, only for it to go horribly wrong.
The four-issue comic book series was recently collected in hardback by Titan Books.
