Scott Cooper shows you can achieve success as long you are ambitious


If you are hard working enough, you should be able to achieve the real success right away. In fact, perseverance is what pays, and that is exactly what Scott Cooper has been able to show to the entire world. He has always been looking ahead to foray into the world of directing a film, and he has been able to achieve the task after spending several years as an actor in the film and television industry.

Scott Cooper

After years of perseverance, he has now been able to reach a stage that he has always longed for. Working since years as an actor, director, producer and a screen writer, Scott Cooper has now been able to carve a niche for himself. He has now become a well known name in the history of Hollywood movies and TV industry. A few of the titles that he has been able to achieve success include Hostiles, Black Mass, Out Of The Furnace and Crazy Heart.

With his latest movie Antlers, he has now been able to create a niche for himself in the horror genre. He has been influenced by a range of directors and film makers in the horror genre. To quote his own words, “I was so influenced early on by the work of John Carpenter, like Halloween, or certainly The Exorcist which is a favourite of mine, or even Tarkovsky’s Stalker. So I’m able to bring all of that into one film which is exciting.”

Scripted by C. Henry Chaisson& Nick Antosca and Cooper himself, the movie is an adapted version of the short story The Quiet Boyby Antosca. The film is set to release in the theatres in 2020. You can have a look at the trailer of the movie here –

Incidentally, the horror genre is not something new for Scott Cooper Miami. He has always been interested in the horror genre since the beginning and has dabbled into the concept through his earlier movies. Whether it is a crime stories like “Out of the Furnace”or even his latest film, “Hostiles”.  However, a completely darker material for the movies has not been something he had tried before. To make it more of a powerful movie, the producer Guillermo del Toro has ably supported him.

Frankly speaking, the horror genre was a natural instinct for Guillermo del Toro, and notably enough, it has ideally been the right choice for Cooper. Starring Jeremy T. Thomas, the movie also has the performances by Jesse Plemons as Russell’s brother, Scott Haze, Rory Cochrane, Graham Green, and Amy Madigan.

From what we could find from the teasers, the movie appears to be promising, and we would definitely want to see more of such powerful movies from Scott Cooper.
