Bradley Cooper exits “The Crow” – Who will replace him?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Bradley Cooper has walked away from a planned reboot of “The Crow,” though his replacement could be named shortly.

The “Hangover” star cited “scheduling conflicts” that have forced him to depart director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s remake for Relativity, THR reports. Cooper was set to play a rocker who is murdered by thugs, then resurrected as a spirit of vengeance. Based on a comic series created by James O’Barr, “The Crow” has inspired multiple films, most memorably a version starring the late Brandon Lee in the lead.

Cooper is about to start production on David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” with Mark Wahlberg. Early next year, he’s moving on to the big-budget “Paradise Lost,” with director Alex Proyas.

Ironically, Cooper’s “Playbook” co-star Wahlberg is one of the names associated with “The Crow” now that Cooper has departed. THR says the “Other Guys” actor almost had a deal in place to play the Crow before it fell through.

If Wahlberg isn’t interested in the role at this point, THR says Channing Tatum also is circling the project.
