Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Bradley Cooper is being eyed to portray WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon in an upcoming biopic titled Pandemonium.

Cooper has been offered the role, but he has not yet made a decision, PWInsider reported.

The project from from Sony Pictures, will be directed by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (This is Us) from a script by Craig A. Williams. WWE Studios is also involved. Pandemonium will follow the life and times of McMahon as he builds a professional wrestling empire.

Cooper is currently attached to a number of films including Avengers: Infinity War, where he will once again voice Rocket; A Star is Born with Lady Gaga, which marks his directorial debut and underwater thriller Deeper.

In May, WWE Superstar John Cena who is the midst of a blossoming film career, said that his dream acting role would be to portray McMahon.

"That would be something I'd love to do, but I feel maybe a different actor should do that movie, just because of how powerful the story is and I would hate for the audience to feel that it is a WWE-produced product. And that's not in a bad way, it's just I want them to feel the emotion that I felt reading the script," Cena said at the time.
