Bradley Cooper Flies From The Crow Remake

12 Comments

I guess you could say that Bradley flew the coop that is “The Crow” remake. Heh. Get it? Ahem.

THR reports that Cooper, the latest actor attached to Relativity’s ill-fated “Crow” remake, has left the project that was to have him starring as a deceased rock star who returns as a vengeful badass. The film was supposed to be directed by “28 Weeks Later’s” Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who is still attached.

The culprit for Cooper leaving the remake? He’s got David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook” in the Fall and Alex Proyas’ “Paradise Lost” in early 2012. Yes, I said Alex Proyas, the man who directed the original “Crow” movie starring Brandon Lee, and who has made his displeasure known about the remake. You can’t make this stuff up, folks.

With Relativity still intent on remaking the movie, and Fresnadillo still onboard, a replacement is needed. THR says there are two possible candidates: Channing Tatum and Mark Wahlberg.

Yeah, I don’t know how viable Wahlberg is, to be honest. He was attached to the remake for a while as well, before leaving it. Why would he come back if he already left once already? Tatum, I can buy. He seems perfectly suited for a movie that was, is, and will always be a major bad idea.

    Again I say stop with the Eric Driven story. Come up with a new protagonist and take on the story. Change the setting, the period, the race and tell something original.

    Can’t a classic film be a classic film. I was upset at the horrible sequels and now they are going to remake. Ugh

      I’d say if Brandon Lee were still alive, he would have done the sequels. But i’m still not sure even the first one is considered a classic…yet.

    The Crow was a BADASS movie and to remake it is a BAD choice!! I agree by saying it is a classic and they just need to leave it alone. Come up with somthing original, not something thats been done already.

    They need to stop remakin classic movies and come up with fresh ideas, no remake or sequal will beat the orginal and anyone stupid enough to try doing so needs slapping.
    the crow is brandon lee’s legacy he died makin this film and it should be left alone to keep his memory alive

    I absolutly agree. The crow was a classic…still is….Brandon Lee is the crow….This whole remakeing shit is stupid…There going to kill it just like everything else……hollywood sucks…..It’s either sequel after sequel….remakes of classics…even remakes of japanese horror films….Makes me want to go out there and make a movie that is fresh.

      Good luck. Here’s the thing about original ideas, there aren’t really any left. And then when one does come up no one is willing to take the chance. And if they do they do it half heartedly. Even original ideas have some founding in something else. Sad but true. Hollywood has been recylcing film ideas and stories for decades. This is the reason why alot of literatre and comics are now being mined for material.
