“The Hangover” and “Limitless” star Bradley Cooper is in early negotiations to topline the reboot of “The Crow” franchise for Relativity Media reports the trades.
Like the Brandon Lee-led original and its three sequels, the story follows a rock musician who is murdered while trying to save his fiancee from thugs. He is resurrected by supernatural forces and seeks revenge.
Cooper recently flew to Spain to meet with the film’s director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“28 Weeks Later”) who “sparked” to Cooper’s take on the character. Fresnadillo is currently re-writing Nick Cave’s script which was penned for the previous incarnation of the reboot that Mark Wahlberg and director Stephen Norrington walked away from.
Edward R. Pressman, Jeff Most, Ryan Kavanaugh, Enrique Lopez Lavigne and Belen Atienza will produce and shooting aims to kick off in the Fall.
