Bradley Cooper is a no-go for The Crow, who will take the remake?

Aug. 15, 2011by:

Bradley Cooper has seen his popularity rocket to such heights that he can't make room on his schedule for everything he's been attached to in the past year or so.

Now because he's stretched so thin, Cooper has flown the coop on Relativity's remake of THE CROW, leaving the project in search of another leather-clad revenant.

Although we did previously evade Mark Wahlberg as the new Eric Draven, the threat apparently remains now that the role is available, according to Heat Vision. But perhaps even worse, the studio is also reportedly considering Channing Tatum, making Cooper a comparatively perfect choice.

THE CROW is officially described as "a reboot of the iconic cult character Eric Draven, who’s resurrected as The Crow to avenge his wife’s murder so he can reunite with her in the hereafter, as first envisioned by graphic novelist James O’Barr."

The update (unrelated to Alex Proyas' 1994 movie) comes from Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who directed 28 WEEKS LATER and the under-appreciated INTACTO (and, almost, the adaptation of the videogame BIOSHOCK). Stephen Norrington (BLADE) was also once attached to direct.

Extra Tidbit: Seriously, can anyone live up to Brandon Lee's version?

The fact that Marky Mark is even considered tells me this is going to be a sh*t movie. With Cooper along, I might buy it.

I was warming up to the idea of Cooper in this, if it had to be made. He may have some range in him we haven't seen yet.

Good God

What idiot at Relativity was like if we can't get Copper lets go for Channing Tatum... Seriously are you completely clueless? You can tell this movie is going to suck just by that act alone. Fucking Channing Tatum?!? God help us all.

DEAL WITH IT !

First: If the Studios think they can make money with it, the remake WILL BE MADE whatever you want it or not !
Now, I would NOT be against ANOTHER adaptation of the COMICS (rather than a remake of the first film). It has some major differences compared to the film.
And lets be honest, here... A good part of the first movie's BO was caused by morbid curiosity, THEN people saw the movie was ACTUALLY REALLY GOOD !
Who could replace Brandon Lee ? NO ONE !
Who could be a new, different and (why

Who could be a new, different and (why not) good ERIC DRAVEN ? I'll go for an unknown for reasons Falock01 explained earlier very well.

just one more thought

the reason i'm not a hater of remakes is because unlike most i know a remake does not replace the original film. its another version. like a new batman, a new joker, a new bane. its interesting to see different takes on the same character. or movie.

goodbye cooper

look i'm no slouch but i believe with this as with all kinda franchise characters they should hire a relative unknown so he can make the role his own thing and we won't be like wow cooper was really different. thats what i miss before cooper was a big name he was a great actor. from an abusive and somewhat frightening boyfriend in wedding crashers, to the frightened photographer in midnight meat train. un knowns are better because they are not overshadowed by their own celeberity when was the

Extra Tidbit: Doubtful

I'm still confused they want to go with the remake route when there is a ton of 'Crow' material out there.

Oh yeah! Thank god no Cooper. People seem to forget Brandon Lee was half-Chinese, so why not try casting an Asian American?

I guess it's not a good day for a remake Huh Skank!

There should never be a remake for this movie. We owe Brandon that much for his unfortunate death. If anything, They should just take it to another city but without the B.S. Level that was in the City of Angels. Maybe they should try Michelle Rodriguez in Mexico City against a Cartel or Maggie Q in Hong Kong against the Triads. I will even settle for Susan Boyle in London against... well whatever passes for organised crime there. Maybe those rioters?

This remake is a horrible idea. I am thrilled that Cooper decided to leave the film, because it would have been horrible for his successful career right now.

Wahlberg would be a horrible choice for this. Just don't see Eric Draven in him. And as for Tatum, DEAR GOD NO! I don't get it, how could they not find anyone else to be a better possible choice than him? Unless of course no one that smart would consider doing a movie like this.

This movie is something I hope never sees the
