Bradley Cooper in Talks to Star in 'The Crow' Remake

Heat Vision and THR says:

Bradley Cooper is in early negotiations to star in Relativity’s remake of The Crow, being directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

In the adaptation of the gritty black-and-white indie comic by artist James O'Barr, Cooper will play a rock musician who is murdered while trying to save his fiancée from thugs. He is resurrected by supernatural forces and seeks revenge. The role was originally played by Brandon Lee, who was killed by a freak accident during production in 1993.

This might well be biggest WTF moment in movie news in my recent memory.

Eternus3680d ago (Edited 3680d ago )

Did you see Limitless? Cooper has quite a bit of range. I think he could pull it off.

Quagmire3680d ago

No. Id rather have Cillian Murphy over this douschebag anyday.

Cillian Murphy would be a good choice. But I agree with Eternus. Don't count Cooper out. Watch Limitless and he shows he actually has some decent acting chops to him. His "dark/gritty" parts of that movie were well done.

I wouldn't count Cooper out of this either. I think he's a great actor. It's just what he needs to show off his talent and get into some different stuff. Limitless didn't seem to turn out extrememly well. He's well liked and the movie is a cult classic so maybe this will show higher numbers and get him going a bit more.

I think I just vomitted in my mouth a little.

Yeah...I usually follow the whole "give the guy a chance" and you guys even persuaded me with a certain Catwoman...but this....HELL NO.

This just shows Hollywood hardly knows anything about quality film making anymore....He is a great actor for what he does, but The Crow? Come on....Its nothing more than an advertising benefit and we all know it.
