Los Angeles: Indian-American filmmaker M Night Shyamalan says the possibility of Bradley Cooper joining his upcoming supernatural thriller is dim because the Hollywood actor will be busy with the sequel to `Hangover`.

Shyamalan, known for his thrillers like `Sixth Sense` and `The Village`, is preparing for a new project after the release of his latest film `The Last Airbender`, which stars `Slumdog Millionaire` star Dev Patel, Ace Showbiz reported.

While it was previously said to see the collaboration of at least three A-list stars, Shyamalan claims it is likely that Cooper might not star in it as expected.

"`Hangover 2`, I don`t think Bradley can do it because of that," Shyamalan said.

The 35-year-old actor is attached to reprise his role in `The Hangover` sequel, which is likely to be shot as early as November this year.

On why he wants Cooper, Bruce Willis and Gwyneth Paltrow for the project, Shyamalan said, "Bradley is a Philly boy, we see each other a lot, and we`ve become friends, and obviously I`ve worked with Bruce a lot. But Gwyneth, she`s just a great actress, that`s why I`d be interested."
