A-Team Star Tipped for Crow Reboot

image

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 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.

...they seriously need to leave that movie alone, really.

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.

Ah dammit, for a moment i thought they were talking about Sharlto Copley (District 9). But no, it's bloody Bradley Cooper.....

I totally agree, it's starting to get ridiculous.

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.

Couldn't find any screen shots from Limitless, huh?

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.

Lol.

So, never heard of a film by this name before - was the other film any good?

Yeah, I'm just gonna stick my fingers in my ears and shout "LA LA LA NOT LISTENING" until this stupid fucking idea goes away.

Leave. It. Alone.

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.

John Marcone:

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.

Really, you really need to go and fuck up old stuff? Noone has a new idea or something?!

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.

Anyone else click on this hoping that they were talking about Mr T?

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.

The Rogue Wolf:

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.

The first movie was fantastic. I still listen to songs off the soundtrack every now and then. The movies that came after got progressively worse.

If they have to redo the first movie, I at least hope that do a closer comic book adaptation and not just a rehash of the first movie, as that stands on it's own and needs no retelling.

Wither that or do a Crow movie with a female Crow, as while it has been down on the small screen, it would really make a Crow movie more interesting.

this!

Mr.K.:
No one has a new idea or something?!

you have to ask?

OT: meh, im just thinking that the role is cursed. like the joker role.

A. I need to see the original "The Crow"
B. You know? Every time I see the news of a remake and the onslaught of people saying "NOOOOOooOOOoOOOOO", I secretly hope the remake will be better even if I really loved the original material. Why? Because I'm a bastard and I want to see you all say "I was wrong on the Internet...My life needs a new purpose".

Note* No offense guys

Amen to that.

I don't even need to say it, but... Terrible idea.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

LEAVE THE CROW ALONE

THE SEQUELS WERE SHIT ENOUGH

SHOULD HAVE JUST LEFT IT WITH THE FIRST ONE

WHICH WAS A FUCKING MASTERPIECE Well, one of my favourite films, anyway

That's, what, 4 remakes that I know of, if you count the very remakey sequel and the TV pilot.

Here's an idea, instead of taking good movies and remaking them as rubbish, why not take rubbish ones and redoing them til you get it right?

The Crow died in 1994 with Brandon Lee (R.I.P), let his legacy be remembered from the classic.
Also, no offense to Bradley Cooper, but he I see more of a action/professional kind of of man, not the make-up & murder type.

Ophiuchus:
Yeah, I'm just gonna stick my fingers in my ears and shout "LA LA LA NOT LISTENING" until this stupid fucking idea goes away.

I'm with you on that one brother. La la la la la la la la laaaaaaaaa!

This is why I don't agree with a reboot.

It's okay to swear on the internet. Don't fret.

OP: While I do like Bradley Cooper, he is no Crow. At least, it would be unlikely that he fit the role. Still, how many of us thought Heath Ledger would make a good Joker?

Regardless, stay the fuck away from The Crow, Hollywood. You've fucked it enough.

I like Cooper, but I don't think that this role is best for the actor

EDIT: Looks like I got Ninja'd.

No. Just No. I hope this gets stuck in development hell and never comes out.

NOOOOOOOooooooOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOO GJNAJgMGAFGD<GAF"<d

Why do I ever have any hope for these godawful remakes? WHYYYY!?!?

Only if Nolan directs.
