Hm… we’re not sure how fans of the original film are going to feel about this casting.
“The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper is in negotiations to star in the remake of “The Crow,” EW reports. Previously, Mark Wahlberg was in consideration for the part, but talks fell through.
The 1994 film followed a man Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) brutally murdered who comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fianc�e’s murder. The cult hit was adapted from the ’80s comic books by James O’Barr. The film’s star Brandon Lee died during production when a prop gun misfired.
Three other films have been made based on “The Crow” comic books by O’Barr. A sequel, “The Crow: City of Angels,”starring Vincent Perez came out in 1996, “The Crow: Salvation” came out in 2000 and “The Crow: Wicked Prayer,” which starred David Boreanaz and Edward Furlong, was released in 2005.
Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo signed on to direct the remake last week and production is set to start in the fall.
