Film nerds will stir in their nests, disturbing the mountains of cinema stubs they have pointlessly collected as they thrash around in anger at the news of Bradley Cooper allegedly being picked to play the lead role in the remake of The Crow. I imagine.
Some might wonder why they’re bothering to revamp this cult revenge thriller which is largely famous because Brandon Lee, son of caterwauling Chuck Norris botherer Bruce, died during its filming. The answer is that they’re doing it to accrue the piles of cash that you’ll grudgingly hand over to watch it.
Cooper isn’t confirmed for the role officially, but some executive chatter has suggested he has a shared vision with the remake’s director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. Presumably that vision is of himself swimming in a bath of money, Scrooge McDuck-style, after getting paid for resurrecting a film which I’d happily keep coffined in a crypt with other improbable classics.
