Bradley Cooper seems to be taking his role in Limitless to heart, since it appears that he's no longer limiting himself to charming hunk roles. Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the I Want to Marry Ryan Banks co-star (look it up) is in negotiations to play the charming undead hunk role in Relativity's upcoming remake of The Crow. The original film was based on James O'Barr's moody comic book about a musician who comes back from the dead to avenge the murder of his fiance. Brandon Lee portrayed the character in the original film, and after a tragic on-set accident died during production. Subsequent actors who played the lead in the Crow movies – Vincent Perez, Eric Mabius and Edward Furlong – had similar fates befall their careers.

This news comes less than a week after 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo signed on to the project, and apparently he's already met with Cooper about starring in the project. It's nice to see a movie coming together so quickly, even though we're not exactly sure we want to see this movie.
