Netflix has revealed the first look of its upcoming film ‘Maestro’, which stars Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan.
The film is based on the life of composer Leonard Bernstein. Cooper plays the composer in different phases of his life, even in his elderly days. Bernstein died in 1990, at the age of 72, due to a heart attack.
He managed to win seven Emmy Awards, sixteen Grammy Awards, and two Tony Awards during his career. He also created the Broadway Musical ‘West Side Story’, which is relevant even today and has spawned two films, in 1961 and 2021.
Since ‘A Star is Born ‘, Maestro will be his first directorial venture. He is also a producer on the film, along with Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Kristie Macosko Krieger, Fred Berner and Amy Durning.
The production phase started recently and the film is expected to release next year.
