Bradley Cooper to Star in <em>The Crow</em> Remake?

Bradley Cooper is currently in early negotiations to take on the titular role in a remake of The Crow. The adaptation of James O’Barr’s gritty 1989 comic (no longer written by Nick Cave) will see Cooper portraying a rock star who is murdered while trying to save his girlfriend from thugs. After undergoing a supernatural resurrection, he returns to exact his revenge.

Cooper is said to have recently met with director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) to discuss the project in Spain, where the two hit it off and drummed up some ideas for both the character and the film. Nothing is official yet, but sources close to the project say Cooper is interested in joining the film. Production is slated to begin in the fall.

Brandon Lee, son of martial-arts legend Bruce Lee, performed the lead role in the 1994 adaptation, but was killed on set during a freak accident.
