Bradley Cooper set for The Crow remake?

April 13th, 2011

Bradley Cooper is in negotiations to star in a remake of 'The Crow'.

The 'Limitless' actor is being pursued by Relativity Media for the role of a rock musician who is murdered while trying to save his partner, only to be resurrected and seek his revenge.

Brandon Lee played the role originally, but was killed during production on set in 1993.

Last week Juan Carols Fresnadillo - the filmmaker behind '28 Weeks Later' - was announced as the director of the project.

It is thought Juan and Bradley met last week in Spain where they both hit it off discussing their mutual vision for the character, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Production on the film is due to start later this year, with Tucker Tooley ('The Fighter') on board as an executive producer.

Bradley will next be seen in the sequel to 'The Hangover', but recently revealed he would love to play the role of Tom Buchanan in the forthcoming Baz Luhrmann version of 'The Great Gatsby'.

He said: "I don't even know if I'm on Lurhmann's radar. Maybe he'll read this article after the role's cast and say, 'Oh. Ha. Yeah, that guy was never going to get it.' "
