Bradley Cooper flies away from The Crow


As far as remakes/reboots go I wasn’t actually that upset that The Crow was getting the treatment, and hearing that Bradley “I’m Really Hot When I Speak French” Cooper was starring in the film made the idea even more palatable. However, the film has been in trouble since a lawsuit over rights, and now Cooper is just far too busy to star in it. He happens to be very in at the moment and his schedule has filled up with the likes of The Place Beyond the Pines and Paradise Lost.

Do not fear, however, as Relativity, the film’s studio, is all set to tackle the movie still once court proceedings get wrapped up. They are now either eying Channing Tatum or Mark Wahlberg, neither of which really remind me of Bradley Cooper, but whatever. The script is getting a rewrite anyway so I’m sure they can rework it to make either actor fit better.

While I’m not sure which one I’d rather have go goth for us I can say that Tatum needs a hit blockbuster more than Wahlberg, but neither really fits the mold of goth heartthrob.
