Chris Tucker In Talks For Movie Return With ‘The Silver Linings Playbook’

Chris Tucker is ready to head back to the big screen, and will possible star alongside Bradly Cooper and Robert DeNiro.

The fast-talking actor-comedian is in talks for a role in The Silver Linings Playbook, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Playbook, which is scheduled to shoot in the fall, stars Bradley Cooper as a high school teacher just released from a mental institution after four years and looking to reconcile with his wife. It’s an adaptation of the novel by Matthew Quick.

Tucker will play Cooper’s spirited friend who lives in a mental hospital, according to Variety. He escapes on several occasions to visit the troubled protagonist, as the duo have a special understanding of each other.

Tucker hasn’t been in a movie since 2007, when he reprised his detective role opposite Jackie Chan in Rush Hour 3.
