Mark Wahlberg has bailed from the movie “The Silver Linings Playbook’’ because of scheduling issues, according to Deadline.com. Deadline says Bradley Cooper is in talks to take over the role in the film adaptation of the Matthew Quick book, which is expected to costar “The Hunger Games’’ actress Jennifer Lawrence. “The Silver Linings Playbook’’ would have reunited Wahlberg with “The Fighter’’ director David O. Russell. Wahlberg and Russell still have plans to make a sequel to “The Fighter’’ . . . eventually.
