Bradley Cooper told Terry Gross on NPR’s Fresh Air on Thursday that he is moving ahead with plans to portray Chris Kyle, who was killed on a shooting range last week, in a film adaptation of the former SEAL’s best selling memoir, American Sniper. He bought the rights last May and says he learned about Kyle’s killing while meeting with veterans who have post-traumatic stress disorder  at Walter Reed Hospital.

Kyle had another book in the works, American Gun: A History of the U.S. in Ten Firearms, (HarperCollins/Morrow; HarperLuxe). Publishers Weekly reports it will be released, as planned, on May 14, with the “”the full support of the Kyle family and friends.”
