FRESNADILLO Picks ‘HIGHLANDER’ Over ‘THE CROW’ Remake!

By on 17 October, 2011


 

Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has quit the remake of 1994 supernatural film ‘The Crow‘, after agreeing to work on the ‘Highlander‘ reboot!

 

Fresnaillo decided to helm ‘The Crow‘ after original director Stephen Norrington stepped down last October, but the project also saw his departure soon after Bradley Cooper quit the movie – who was due to star as the main character.
 

Instead, Cooper will start filming on David O. Russell‘s ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ in the autumn and then immediately begins filming ‘Paradise Lost‘ – the same time ‘The Crow‘ was due to begin filming.

Although a replacement for Cooper is yet to be decided, Channing Tatum and Mark Wahlberg are reportedly in the mix to replace him.

The Crow‘, based on the 1989 comic book, tells the story of a rock musician who is murdered while trying to save his partner, only to be resurrected and seek his revenge.

 

Brandon Lee played the role originally, but was killed during production on set in 1993.
