He is starring opposite Carey Mulligan in the film. She is playing Bernstein’s wife Felicia Montealegre. The snapshots uploaded feature the composer at different ages. Especially, the look which is worthy of mention is Cooper’s look as the elderly Bernstein.

    Scott Stuber, the head of global films at Netflix, told Variety before the movie started shooting that “We’ve done a lot of work on the makeup. We’ve done a lot of work on the voice. I’m excited to see someone so deeply focused on creating a story that means so much to him. And Carey Mulligan is an incredible actress.”

    It all began when Steven Spielberg approached Cooper to act in the movie “Maestro”. But after his debut as a director in 2018, he was more interested in the role of writing and directing a movie rather than just acting even if it meant doing so for Spielberg. He told Spielberg, “‘I always felt like I could play a conductor, but may I research the material and see if I can write it and direct it? Would you let me do that?’” Cooper said. “Steven has a lot of interests — he’ll just choose one thing and all of the other things will be on hold. I think he knew he wasn’t going to make that movie for a while. He was kind enough to hand it off to me, and that’s what I’ve been doing for the last four and a half years.”

    Director Martin Scorsese is producing the upcoming film.
