Is Bradley Cooper the next Eric Draven? According to Heat Vision, director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo met with THE HANGOVER star to discuss his creative vision for what is being dubbed a “re-invention” of the cult classic film. Based on the comics by James O’Barr, THE CROW portrayed the story of Eric Draven, a young musician who is brutally murdered alongside his fiancée and is brought back from the grave by a mysterious crow that imbues him with the power to avenge their deaths.
On March 31, 1993 Brandon Lee was killed on the set of THE CROW when a prop gun malfunctioned, and several key scenes were completed using stunt doubles and composite shots. THE CROW re-invention is slated for release sometime in 2013 with filming starting as early as fall 2011.
