Hunky actor Bradley Cooper has dropped out of the lead, titular role in the remake of The Crow. Cooper had signed on to play anti-hero Eric Draven AKA The Crow.
The 1994 film is a cult classic, and not only because actor Brandon Lee, who played Draven/The Crow, was shot and killed on set after a prop gun accident. In the film, Draven returns from the dead and hunts down the gang of miscreants who murdered his wife.
Cooper had to drop out due to a scheduling conflict. He is committed to David O. Russell's Silver Linings, as well as the adaptation of John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost, and the shoot for The Crow does not fit his schedule.
Rumor is Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum are in talks to take over the role. Shooting is slated for 2012.
Who should replace Bradley Cooper in The Crow remake? Did you love the original? Do you think a remake is ill-advised or do you support it?
