Concept art from The Crow reboot lets you know why Bradley Cooper left

Nov. 14, 2011by: Paul Tassi

I think the general reaction to the news that Bradley Cooper was starring in a reboot of THE CROW to be directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was "huh?"

Soon both Cooper and Fresnadillo left the project, and it's currently floundering for a new star and director, but now Shock Till You Drop has some leaked concept art from the film drawn by Diego Latorre that shows what Cooper could have looked like in the role. I think the operative word is "ridiculous."

Check out the art for yourself below, and maybe it's your thing, but I couldn't help but laugh at a few of these.

Extra Tidbit: The movie does not need to happen. Skip this stop, reboot train, skip this stop.

Uggh

Is it me or does that first poster guy seriously look like IGGY POP? If they really have to do this, go with a resurrected dead girl such as Michelle Rodriguez in Mexico City, Maggie Q in Hong Kong, Olga Kurylenko in Moscow or Mila Kunis in Prague. Pick one of these hot girls and get crazy or see this crap go str8 2 DVD

I never understood the appeal for the Crow that granted three sequels and a TV series.

It's like if Rob Zombie and Kid Rock banged inside Tim Burton's art studio and out came Bradley Cooper.

This would have been a horrible misfire for Cooper's booming career.

Work with me here...

The only way it could work with Bradley Cooper: imagine Stu as T-Bird, White Doug as Funboy, Black Doug as Tin Tin and Alan as Skank. Fire It Up! Fire It Up!

That is some rather nice artwork, but I wouldn't equal that to The Crow. If it was another project, it could work nicely. Too bad.

Great drawings, but not for the film at all. I am glad the movie isn't moving forward just yet. Hopefully never.

Looks like they dipped Bradley Cooper in glue, then rolled him through a Hot Topic. I think Bradley Cooper dropped out of this movie after seeing the faux hawk and top hat.

Like so many commenters before me said, this just emphasizes how dated the concept is. The 90s were full of things that were dark and gritty...some of them embarrassingly so.

My god... Criss Angel meets Bam Margera? These are hysterical. I agree w/ Lone Justice. The goth-rock concept is way too dated.

I like Bradley Cooper but these concept arts are just even more proof he was not the right guy for the job, he just feels out of place. That design doesn't help either, I think we dodged a bullet

Doesn't seem that far removed from the original to me. But then again I suppose some people have to make their articles 'go wow' somehow...

Two Words- Mind Freak. I think the 90's ended a long time ago- The Crow as a concept just seems so attached to that period. Let it die
