Bradley Cooper may star in Relativity Media's remake of "The Crow," TheWrap has confirmed.
The "Hangover" heartthrob already has talked to director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo about taking on the role originally played by Brandon Lee in the 1993 movie.
An individual familiar with the project said that Fresnadillo -- who was hired just last week -- is interested in having Cooper play the lead, and that the two of them chatted about the part.
Cooper has been good for Relativity: he stars in an executive produced the studio's "Limitless," which has grossed $95 million worldwide since it opened in March.
Edward R. Pressman, Jeff Most, Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, and Apaches’ Enrique López Lavigne and Belén Atienza are producing "The Crow."
While the 1993 film grossed an impressive-for-its-day $50.7 million at the domestic box office, the Miramax movie is best known for the tragic on-set death of Lee, son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee.
The younger Lee died after a prop gun malfunctioned.
Cooper is repped by CAA.
The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
