With the Oscars (and awards season) now behind him, Bradley Cooper is gearing up for more work.

While the 44-year-old actor didn’t walk away with an Oscar for his directorial debut in A Star Is Born, he’ll likely have other chances to win with some of the projects lining up his slate.

With summer blockbusters soon upon us, moviegoers will be able to hear Cooper return as the voice of Rocket in the highly-anticipated Avengers: Endgame.

The Oscar-nominated star is also reportedly set to direct, co-write and star as the legendary composer Leonard Bernstein in a biopic, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A spokesperson for Paramount did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Cooper is notably getting more involved in producing films, such as the upcoming film Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix, which has a 2019 release date.

He’s not stopping there. Cooper is also set to produce the untitled Hulk Hogan biopic which will star Chris Hemsworth.

The star made headlines for his intimate Oscars performance of “Shallow” with his A Star Is Born costar, Lady Gaga. Their chemistry was palpable as they smiled and hugged while walking off stage.

“Shallow” received a Best Original Song nomination while A Star Is Born — which Cooper co-wrote and directed — was up for Best Picture. Gaga, 32, and Cooper also earned acting nods for their starring roles.

In the movie, Gaga’s aspiring singer-songwriter character Ally composes “Shallow” and sings it to Jackson Maine (Cooper), a past-his-prime rocker she meets when he stumbles into a drag bar where she performs one night after his concert.

A Star Is Born also received recognition in the cinematography, sound mixing, adapted screenplay categories, plus Sam Elliott picked up a nod for Best Supporting Actor, giving the film a total of eight nominations.

The 91st Academy Awards were broadcast live from Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 24, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.
