A-Team Star Tipped for Crow Reboot

Just days after getting a director, rumors are already flying about possible stars for the remake of The Crow.

Bradley Cooper, who played Face in the recent A-Team movie, is rumored to be in the early stages of negotiations to play the lead role in the upcoming remake of The Crow. If successful, Cooper will take on the part played by the late Brandon Lee in the 1994 original.

Sources say that Cooper met director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/109124-The-Crow-Coming-Back-to-Avenge-Itself] in Spain recently, where they hit it off and discussed their vision movie. Relativity, the production company making the movie, would not confirm the talks, but Cooper is said to be very keen to join the project. Cooper is not the first name to be linked with the movie; last year Mark Wahlberg was tipped to be the favorite for the lead role. Wahlberg quashed that rumor however, saying that he had been interested in the movie, but that he had never committed to it.

The Crow is based on a comic book of the same name by James O'Barr, and tells the story of man named Eric who comes back from the dead to avenge not only his own murder, but that of his girlfriend Shelly as well. The movie expanded on Eric's back story a little, making him into a musician and giving him the surname "Draven." According to the Hollywood Reporter, Eric remains a musician in the remake, suggesting that it might be closer to the movie version of the story, which aside from being truncated to fit into a movie format, changed the role of many of the characters, and gave the film a different ending.

Production on The Crow is scheduled to start in the Fall, so expect a lot more casting news to come over the next few months.

NO. He's not a bloody "A-Team star". George Peppard, Dirk Benedict, Dwight Schultz and Laurence Tureaud (WHAT?!) were "A-Team stars".

It is a statement I will defend with my life.

While I enjoyed the first one, if they are going to do another Crow film I hope they decide to use the book as the reference rather than the film. As good as the film was, there's bits of the book I feel could be well done in another film that weren't quite as developed first time round.
I think Bradley Cooper could do a pretty good job, if given a good enough version of the story to work with.

Ya know what. Why dont we just give it to Michael Fucking Bay? How you like that idea. It can star Shia Labeouf as Eric, Halle Berry as Shelly, Kristen Stewart as Sarah and HHH as mother fucking Top Dollar! *RAEG*

The movie does not need to be remade. It is not that old. It is infinitely superior to whatever crap these morons are gonna produce. You wanna rape the crow franchise a little more? Make up your own fucking story for it. Do not "remake" the first you disrespectful assholes.

I hope everyone who works on it and the people who green lit the project all die in one big ass fire.

Damn straight. (And bonus Internets for knowing Mr. T's real name.)

What Hollywood REALLY needs to "reboot" is their brains. Obviously creativity.exe has suffered a critical error and shut down.

I can't agree hard enough with the rest of you. The world does not need this. Didn't casting that *BLEEP* faced Edward *bleepy bleep* Furlong into a Crow movie bad enough??

God, the 9 people on here must be die hard fans of the film, it was good, one of my favorite films of all time, but the comic was waaaaay better, if they have to do a remake, maybe they can stick to that plot, as opposed to the old films.

What, Brandon Lee dying making the first film wasn't enough? Seriously, people like you are what's wrong with the world today, it's just fucked up to hope that anyone dies. and I don't care if you were just kidding, death isn't something to joke about.

I think this is a misunderstanding, this is a remake of the edgar allen poe poem, except in this the lead character is haunted by a talking crow (played by eddie murphy) after a wacky night out and they have to find out what happened to his girlfriend who it turns out is on the roof the whole time.

Actually no. People like you are whats wrong with the world today.
Humourless wretches who take some bullshit, fake moral highground and try to snipe at others because they joke about shit you consider srs bsns.
If I want to joke about people dying then I will damn well do so.
If I honestly want people to die then that is my opinion and has nothing to do with you and your opinion on the matter is invalid.
You are free to discuss the topic of the thread but your opinion on my opinion has no place here.
So I will thank you to keep your false morality to yourself sir.
Good day.

It became somewhat of a cult phenomena especially since Brandon Lee died when filming it. ANd I liked it alot.

I really feel that there is no need what so ever remaking this.

Not that I trust any statistic I haven't made up myself, but wasn't it that something like 80% of films released nowadays are reboots, remakes or sequels? Not counting a lot of "follow the leader" films, which aren't really RR&S, but are milking off recent successes. Just think of all the gory war films generated by the success of Saving Private Ryan.

I mentioned that in another thread today - each mainstream film costs so much money to make that the studios prefer to play it safe and milk old cows for extra marketing value.

Personally, I'm waiting for the bubble to burst when films will become too costly to make any money, studios will collapse and the ground will be level again, temporarily. It's bound to happen sooner or later.

I didn't think much of The Crow, a bit meh really. Bradley Cooper has always and will always be Will from Alias, I can't see him as anything else.
