Remember that scene in “Limitless” in the subway station when Bradley Cooper’s character realizes he knows how to fight, and ends up taking on a half dozen guys at the same time? Well now imagine him with a white, painted face and Crow make-up, because Heat Vision is reporting that Cooper is currently in negotiations to front Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s reboot of “The Crow”.
Scant days after announcing that Fresnadillo will be taking over the “Crow” reboot from Stephen Norrington, who was involved for the longest time before quitting, Relativity isn’t wasting any time landing their leading man. Word is Cooper’s involvement is still in the “early negotiations” stages, but it’s apparently far enough along for the trades to report the potential casting.
If all goes well, Relativity is hoping to get the reboot in production by the Fall, which would mean a 2012 release date or thereabouts.
So, does potentially having Cooper as The Crow finally convince you to be excited about a reboot of Alex Proyas’ “The Crow”, based on the comic book series by James O’Barr? Or does it not even matter who stars or directs this thing, you’ll still, ahem, crow about it?
