‘The Hangover’ star Bradley Cooper to take lead in ‘The Crow’?

Plans are moving fast for the comic book horror remake

Bradley Cooper has emerged a frontrunner to star in the forthcoming remake of The Crow.

The Hangover star is early negotiations to star in the remake of the gothic horror. The project was announced last week, and will be directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

Cooper and the Spanish director “shared a vision” for the character and the film when they met recently, according to Thehollywoodreporter.com.
