Bradley Cooper is set to play the role of Mack Bolan, the fictional character of Don Pendleton, in a new film.

The character was a terrorism fighter in the original Pendleton novels and the role will see Cooper, 39, reunite with 'The Hangover' director Todd Phillips, Deadline reports.

Linda Pendleton, the wife of Don, said that her husband wrote the first novel in the series, 'War Against the Mafia,' ''out of his desire to express his discomfort with the reaction of many Americans to our soldiers who were dying for our country in the jungles of Vietnam and those coming home to outrageous verbal and physical abuse''.

She added: ''Mack Bolan became Don's symbolic statement. He also became every soldier's voice. Don created a heroic character in Bolan, a true hero who was dedicated to justice.

''Don created a heroic character in Bolan, a true hero who was dedicated to justice. The enemy that Bolan had to fight was no longer on the battlefields of Vietnam but right here on American soil, and that enemy was the Mafia.''

Depending on the success of the first film, there is every chance that more movies inspired by the Pendleton novels will follow.
