Does anyone else think this is a HORRIBLE idea???
There's a remake of The Crow in the works (strike 1) and word is that Bradley Cooper is in negotiations to star as the lead (strike 2).
We have nothing against Bradley taking the role, don't misunderstand. We think he would be great. It's just…we can't help but feel like it's a little insensitive to remake this movie when the original's star was shot and killed DURING a production.
Too soon. WAY too soon.
Besides, this is a cult classic kind of film. You can never remake a film that has that kind of devoted following.

Back in October, we heard that Mark Wahlberg was up for the lead role in The Crow reboot, which had The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen's Stephen Norrington attached to direct…at the time.
Now, we've learned that Norrington is no longer attached to the project, and instead 28 Weeks Later's Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will now direct.
We've also learned that a new writer is reportedly being brought in. The previous draft of the script was written by Nick Cave
& The Bad Seeds.
This has really become a completely different project. It's like they're rebooting the reboot!
…Guess we probs won't be seeing Marky Mark in this one anymore.
How do U feel about all the recent changes to The Crow reboot? Do U think the 28 Weeks Later director is right for the project?

He's the LAST person we'd initially think to put in this role, but maybe they're onto something…
Director Stephen Norrington has reportedly offered Mark Wahlberg the title role in his upcoming re-imagining of The Crow, which will reportedly be a "realistic, hard edged, and mysterious" version of the original Brandon Lee/Alex Proyas film!
We wonder if he'll accept the role!
Or who else Norrington will pull in if Marky Mark turns him down!
What do U think?? Do U see Mark Wahlberg as The Crow??
