“The Spanish director of 28 Days Later is said to have met with Cooper in Spain recently, where the two hit it off and shared a vision for the character and the film,” according to the report. “Relativity would not confirm the talks but sources say Cooper, currently in theaters in Relativity’s hit thriller Limitless, is keen to board the project.”
James O’Barr’s indie comic chronicles the death of a musician at the hands of thugs and his subsequent return to the land of the living on a quest for revenge. Brandon Lee starred in the 1994 adaptation of the series, only to be killed due to an accident that occurred during production.
The report indicates a Fall 2010 start for production on “The Crow.” Cooper’s next film, “The Hangover, Part II,” premieres May 26.
