Concept Art of Bradley Cooper’s Rejected The Crow Remake

Posted by Grey Monday, November 21, 2011

Sharing our disdain for the proposed remake of "The Crow" featuring Hollywood's latest sweet heart Bradley Cooper as Eric Draven? Then you should check out these recently-unveiled concept art to reaffirm that sentiment.

This Undead Monday, we take a look at a the planned and eventually aborted remake of The Crow, Alex Proyas debut feature film in 1994 that has since been regarded by many as a cult classic film. Depicting the violent quest of vengeance by rock musician Eric Draven who return from the grave one year following his and his fiancée's brutal murder at the hands of a group of thugs, the film is unfortunately well-known for the tragic death of its lead actor, Brandon Lee, who was killed by an accidental gunshot on the set of the film (details of the accident has proven to be extremely frustrating to read but if you must, there's always Wikipedia).

With the film now immortalized in its cult classic status and having made a most lucrative returns (reportedly the film made nearly $150 million worldwide on a $15 million budget), it is only a matter of time until Hollywood decide to remake the film. From Stephen Norrington's proposed remake in 2008 to Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's tale featuring Bradley Cooper as Eric Draven, these projects have thankfully been aborted. By now, judging from our tone, you might have already realized that we are of the opinion that the film based on the comic created by James O'Barr should not be remade.

Courtesy of Shock Till You Drop, we have recently had a good look at what the visual style of the proposed film by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and Bradley Cooper would have been like thanks to the newly-released concept art by artist Diego Latorre. While these pieces are by all means pretty neat stuff, we are further convinced of our initial conviction that the thunder would not strike twice. In truth, while sharing the traits of being a superhero, James O'Barr's Eric Draven is no Superman, Batman, or Spider-Man.

Hit the jump to check out these images.

Following the unveiling of these concept art, Latorre has voiced out on his website about these images:

The "The Crow" images published recently are very early production sketches and are based in my own visual interpretation of the character and not necessarily in Apaches Entertainment and director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo vision.
