If they've tossed Nick Cave's script, I have no interest.

Bradley Cooper in talks to star.

Cooper is one guy who keeps getting nominated for some comic book role or other - I can see him as Doctor Strange, personally - but The Crow?

I saw that and yeah that is a strange bit of potential casting, especially for Eric Draven. Maybe Cilian Murphey?

Re: THE CROW reboot finds its director

I'm just not seeing Cooper as Draven. I'm usually laid back about remakes but this is one movie I really wish they'd leave alone.

Or, what about....I dunno he hasn't done anything major since Constantine and a Criminal Minds episode, but what about Galvin Rossdale from Bush?

Re: THE CROW reboot finds its director

This one strikes me as completely unnecessary, but whatever. I'll wait and see what the early reviews look like. I'm not willing to write something off just because it's a reboot/remake.

Re: THE CROW reboot finds its director

^ Me either. My gripe is mainly emotional. Brandon Lee DIED playing the role first time out. It's a movie about a murdered man who comes back from the dead to avenge his fiancee's and his own deaths. And the main actor, who was supposed to marry his own fiancee after shooting finished, is killed onset. Added to which, he's the son of a prematurely-deceased movie icon, who is still mourned. It's so perfectly poignant for the movie and character.

The whole thing to me just screams 'Leave it alone!' But I guess that's not realistic.

This all assumes Hollywood has any sense of genuine sentimentality. I'm pretty sure it doesn't.

Bradley Cooper is so wrong for this part.

Are we sure the main character is even Eric Draven?

This link says yes.

I'm not sure how credible Heat Vision is though.

Re: THE CROW reboot finds its director

The thing is, Eric Draven was a guitarist in a rock band. James O'Barr based his look on that of Robert Smith, while Brandon Lee adopted a sinewy Iggy Pop body look for the movie.

Bradley Cooper doesn't look like a guitarist in an up and coming rock band. He looks like he might be in an AOR middle-of-the-road band at best. He's too old to be a struggling musician in an indie band. He looks yuppie-ish; if he's struggling, he's more like the guy who missed his chance at rock stardom and now plays in a covers band. Plus you don't really see too many bands who look like the sort of band in the original The Crow. So what will they do with Eric? Make him a rapper?

That's not to say that they couldn't re-write the character to suit someone like Cooper, but it just seems to be totally removed from the original graphic novel and movie.
