With the franchise in the middle of a legal battle, Relativity Media and producer Edward R. Pressman are still moving forward having tapped Watchmen scribe Alex Tse to write their reinvention of The Crow, based on the comic by James O’Barr.
Variety confirms that Bradley Cooper is still attached to star in the pic, which will be directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later).
Relativity’s adaptation of The Crow is expected to be a gritty reboot of the iconic gothic character Eric Draven, who returns from the grave on a mission to avenge his wife’s murder so that his soul can rest.
Tse has previously worked on an adaptation of the graphic novel “Battling Boy” for Paramount and Brad Pitt’s Plan B banner, a remake of Ninja Scroll (a film I want to see even more than Akira) for Warner Bros. and Leonardo DiCaprio’s production co. Appian Way, Gangland for Joel Silver’s Dark Castle banner and an adaptation of The Phantom Tollbooth for producer Donald DeLine.
