If it came down to scheduling conflicts, which would you rather become on the silver screen? The devil or The Crow? Well, Bradley Cooper has made a decision in terms of upcoming high-profile projects and The Crow was not on the winning side. HR is reporting the actor had to make the choice between Alex Proyas' Paradise Lost and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's upcoming reboot of the James O'Barr comic book character because both productions were scheduled to begin shooting early next year. He went with playing Lucifer opposite archangel Michael (Benjamin Walker) in the adaptation of John Milton's classic poem.

Fresnadillo will move onward with the Relativity Media's gritty reboot of the Eric Draven character, with the trade reporting that some early favorites to replace Cooper appear to be Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum. The list of possible candidates will likely grow over the next few weeks but those two actors are the front-runners at the current moment.

Juan Carlos penned the original screenplay before Alex Tse was brought in for some rewrites.
