Just a few days after Relativity Media officially confirmed Juan Carlos Fresnadillo as the director to lead The Crow to theaters, Heat Vision is reporting Bradley Cooper may be landing the title character for the upcoming reboot.

The trade reports that Cooper (Hangover, The A-Team, Limitless) is at the negotiating table to tackle the role once played by Brandon Lee after having a positive meeting with Fresnadillo in Spain. With production planned to launch later this year, the helmer will be shooting based on a screenplay he wrote with scribe Nick Cave.

Plot Concept: Based on the comic by James O'Barr, the reboot will focus on the character of Eric Draven (once played by Lee in the 1994 adaptation). Cooper would play a rock musician who is murdered while trying to save his fiancée from thugs.

I hope Bradley Cooper doesn't take on this role.  I really don't care much for The Crow.  Bradley deserves to take on better roles, he should have been cast as the Green Lantern.

First reaction is "what the?!"

I cant see it, but i also can kinda see it? But leaning more toward the cannot see it ness.

That's one person I can't really see as Eric Draven...  You have to find someone who can channel a darkness from within.

What about Joseph Gordon-Levitt?

@bearly - I think Ryan Reynolds was a great choice for Hal.... But Bradley would be a great choice for Guy Gardner. Have him and Ryan at each others throats fior a whole moivie... that would be sweet.

But if Bradley Cooper takes this.... Jensen Ackles for Guy Gardner!

I really can not see Bradley Cooper playing Eric Draven.He doesn't have that darkness that is needed. Gordon-Levitt would be cool. Lee just had the look down perfectly. Eerily enough, Heath Ledger would have made a great Eric Draven.

da8, I suggested JGL over at Blastr.  I think he'd be phenominal in that role.

IM a little indifferent on this. He was good in Limitless but he doesn't strike me as a dark enough person to pull this off.

Then again they could do worse and...uh...em have with subsequant straight to Tape/DVD sequals. I mean really...a rapper as a crow...phhhhfff. The half-wit directors should spend more time reading the mangas.

Incidentially what the hell is up with all the bots on this site creating fake user profiles. This site is an evolved (to a much lesser degree) offshoot of the legacy Magazine Cinescape which I use to love. Yet they have little to no filters in place to remedy this?? Shame on you Mania....SHAME!

Ponyboy- oooo..... Heath Ledger as the Crow; I love that! That woulda been tight. And he was really great in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus too which i just saw recently. I could tell his acting talent was really starting to peak. What an effin tragic waste... =(

 After seeing Limitless I can picture Bradley Cooper as playing the Crow. Maybe not enough to play Eric Draven's character but definitly a Crow character.
