The road to "The Crow" remake/reboot hasn't been without its bumps. Things seemed to moving along swimmingly with Relativity pushing the project ahead, with "28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo at the helm and Bradley Cooper set to take the lead role. Things got derailed slightly when The Weinstein Company launched a lawsuit against Relativity regarding the rights to the franchise -- the case is now in arbitration -- it put the project on hold for a couple of months, enough time for Cooper to start booking his plans for the rest of the year, and even though the legal imbroglio is still being resolved, a new writer, Alex Tse ("Watchmen") was brought on to rewrite the project. Well, Cooper is booked up for the rest of the year with "The Place Beyond The Pines," "The Silver Linings Playbook" before heading into "Paradise Lost" and his schedule has forced him to fly the coop, but no worries, as the studio is now beginning to look at potential replacements and the first two choices to rise the top couldn't be more different.

'Ronin' Scribe To Rewrite Doug Liman's 'All You Need Is Kill'Relativity' Media's adaptation of "The Crow" appears to be moving forward rather smoothly. With Bradley Cooper attached to star (doesn't that still feel weird?) and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo ("28 Weeks Later") in the director's chair, the company hit a snag when they became embroiled in a legal battle with the Weinstein Company who, in April, claimed that they possessed “a written contract signed by everybody” which gives the brothers the worldwide rights to the film (they distributed the 1994 film via their Miramax shingle).

It looks like that remake/reboot of "The Crow" with “28 Weeks Later” helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo directing and Bradley Cooper circling the lead role is hitting the courtrooms before it flaps its wings into theaters.

You sure know how to fuck with us Hollywood. Just a few days after “28 Weeks Later” helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo came aboard to direct the long in the works reboot or whatever of "The Crow" -- that looks like it will be dropping the Nick Cave script (what the hell) -- an actor is now ready to get his dark eyeliner going as Eric Draven. And it's kind of baffling.

So hey, remember last month when it was reported that Mark Wahlberg was being offered the lead in the upcoming "The Crow" reboot? Well as with most offer stories that seem too good to be true, it looks like the actor considered it and then wisely passed.
