Bradley Cooper to Star in ‘The Crow’ Remake

Proving nothing is sacred in Hollywood, they’re doing The Crow for the umpteenth time. The original, one of the best movies ever, starred the late Brandon Lee, son of Bruce Lee, who was killed during filming. This remake will star Bradley Cooper who probably won’t come out of his trailer unless he has a manicure. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) is attached to direct.

In the adaptation of the gritty black-and-white indie comic by artist James O’Barr, Cooper will play a rock musician who is murdered while trying to save his fiancĂ©e from thugs. He is resurrected by supernatural forces and seeks revenge. The role was originally played by Brandon Lee, who was killed by a freak accident during production in 1993.

Instead of rolling in his grave, I hope Brandon Lee high kicks his way out and karate chops whatever execs thought this would be a good idea in the face.
