Bradley Cooper only wants to direct films that he's written himself, and has admitted he has no interest in taking over from James Gunn at the helm of 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3'.
The 'A Star Is Born' filmmaker - who has also produced and taken the lead role in the musical drama - has dismissed the idea of replacing James Gunn on 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3' after he was fired by Disney over controversial past tweets.
Presented with the idea of whether he'd be interesting in stepping up if the studio approached him, he told Joe: "In directing it?
"I could never direct anything that I didn't write. No, I could never direct anything that I didn't write."
While Cooper - who plays Rocket Raccoon in the franchise - is yet to fully open up on his feelings around Gunn's exit after two films in the Marvel movie series, he did sign a statement last month with his fellow castmates defending the director.
