If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Yes, you read that title correctly. According to Hollywood insiders, Bradley Cooper is in early negotiations for the leading role of Eric Draven in Relativity Media's 'The Crow' reboot. The film - being helmed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo - will be another adaptation of the black and white comic book by James O'Barr.
Like the original film which starred Brandon Lee (who tragically died during filming), the story will still revolve around a dead rock musician who returns from the grave by supernatural means to seek vengeance on the thugs who killed him and his girlfriend. While the original film featured Lee in stark black and white harlequin makeup, it's highly unlikely they'll go the same route this time, at the risk of their lead star looking a bit like your average Juggalo ("f**kin' resurrection, how does that work?") or worse - having kids who are too young to remember the original film wonder why the guy from 'The Hangover' is dressed up like a "goth version of the Joker".

While there's always a chance that negotiations could break down, sources say that Cooper is very excited to join the project and production on 'The Crow' is scheduled to begin in the fall.
