He's dealt with a "Hangover" or two. But how will Bradley Cooper take to being resurrected from the dead?
Hot on the heels of news that "28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will be directing the reboot of "The Crow" comes word that the "A-Team" star is in talks to play the lead role of Eric Draven, according to Heat Vision.
Draven is a slain rock musician who returns from the grave one year after he and his fiancee were murdered, guided by a mystical crow to "put the wrong things right." The role was originally played by the late Brandon Lee in director Alex Proyas' 1994 film.
"The Crow" is currently on the fast track at Relativity Media, which is currently enjoying something of a hit with the thriller "Limitless," starring Cooper and Robert De Niro. The film is scheduled to start shooting in the fall (just in time for Devil's Night!).
We're having a hard time picturing anyone other than Brandon Lee in this role, but we guess we're going to have to get over that. Cooper is definitely an unexpected choice for the part, but... well, we're starting to warm up to it. Give us a little time and we'll be ready to Fire It Up.
Bradley Cooper will next be seen in "The Hangover Part II," opening May 26.
