'The Crow': Bradley Cooper To Star In Brandon Lee Film Remake?

Bradley Cooper has shown he can carry a movie. Will he be able to carry a legendary film?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cooper is in talks to star in a remake of the 1994 dark comic book-based classic, "The Crow." Cooper just opened the thriller "Limitless" number one at the box office, proving his leading man status; Relativity Media, the company behind that film, is also the engine behind "The Crow" remake.

About a slain rocker returned from the dead to avenge his death, the original film starred Brandon Lee, son of martial arts legend Bruce, who was tragically killed after a prop gun accidentally shot him with a dummy bullet.

THR says that Cooper has already met with the film's director, and that it's on a pace for rapid development.

Cooper will next appear in "The Hangover Part II," in May. In addition to his compelling action scenes in "Limitless," he starred last year in the action-comedy remake of "The A-Team."

The star also recently said that he wants the role of Tom Buchanan in the upcoming "The Great Gatsby" film, though it looks like Ben Affleck may get that part.
