Bradley Cooper in talks for ‘The Crow’

Relativity actioner is reboot of 1994 cult classic

Relativity Media is sticking with its “Limitless” star Bradley Cooper, who is in early negotiations to topline the studio’s re-invention of “The Crow.”

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“28 Weeks Later”) is directing the action pic, as Variety first reported (Daily Variety, April 8).

Brandon Lee starred in Alex Proyas’ original 1994 cult classic, based on the comicbook series by James O’Barr. It follows a dead rock musician who’s resurrected by a mystical bird in order to avenge his fiancee’s murder.

Cooper recently flew to Spain to meet with Fresnadillo, who immediately sparked to Cooper’s take on the character.

Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh will produce along with original “Crow” producers Edward R. Pressman and Jeff Most, as well as Apaches Entertainment’s Enrique Lopez Lavigne and Belen Atienza. Relativity’s Tucker Tooley will exec produce, while co-producers include Pressman Film Corp.’s Jon Katz and Apaches’ Jesus de la Vega, as well as Jose Ibanez.

Production is expected to start this fall.

Cooper’s newfound star power has driven “Limitless” at the box office, where the film is nearing the $100 million mark worldwide. He next stars in Todd Phillips’ “The Hangover Part II,” which Warner Bros. will release May 26.

Cooper is repped by CAA.
