The Crow Remake

Oh I cannot wait to hear the fan feedback on this. Throughout much of the year, Relativity has been trying to develop a remake of The Crow, that's undergone legal woes and other pre-production setbacks, including as of October losing its latest director, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, and lead actor, Bradley Cooper. We didn't expect to hear much about this anytime soon, but our friends at ShockTillYouDrop have laid their hands on some fantastic concept art pieces giving us a look at what Cooper as Eric Draven would've looked like as well as some of the color tone and style, along with more costume and crazy hair styles. See below!

The concept art was created by illustrator Diego Latorre, who worked on the film, you can visit his website at This remake originally started as an original Stephen Norrington project, attempting to seduce Mark Wahlberg to star, before being dropped and handed to Juan Carlos Fresnadillo as of earlier this April, with Bradley Cooper the new top choice for Draven, the character created by James O'Barr as a comic first. The Cooper phase is obviously where the art comes from and it sounds like this was moving along, but of course it all fell apart and now neither are attached and who knows what's going on. At least we get to take a look at what this would've been like and I'm not really that impressed. What do you think?

  • Croniccris
    i'd tell them to keep up the good work! cuz if they do I wont have to worry about one of my favorite movies being remade!
  • Lebowski
    Just phenomenally poor quality. Look's like the deviantart account of some fat mall-goth from a flyover state.
    • in your face
      very smart insulting overwight people, show your drawings we are all superexcited
  • AlishaTrojan
    NOPE. Looks bad. The original was awesome, stop remaking everything. Why take something that is loved and poop on it? This isn't my most eloquent post... but I've made my point.
  • Cab0y1990
    PLEASE NOO. this literally looks gay. i cant believe there is more than one person that thought this was a good idea to release
  • jaikingtaro
    let The Crow rest guys...Brandon Lee  R.I.P...
  • brandon lee
    i suppose its alright,not great though is it.
  • Thexn
    This is a remake for a movie that should never be remade. They got it absolutely perfect the first time around. And with the added tragedy of Mr. Lee's death, some things should be (and I know this is hard for Hollywood to realize) left alone.
  • Crazy Britney Fan
    Leave Brandon alone!
  • ur_babys_daddy
    Wouldnt mind seeing an animated version, but use other characters through different time periods.
  • Legion
    Hollywood is creatively bankrupt. It's time for other industries to take over and make their own movies rather than entrust Hollywood to interpret their stories.

    This is shaping up to be as bad as the live action Akira film starring all white people with the token Asian scientist, sidekick, and villain. Is this Crow a WB film? Sure seems that way. 
    • John
      Funny but true.
  • grimjob
    I'm embarrassed for Dennis Hopper for being a part of Wicked Prayer. Its a shame one of his last roles was in that steaming pile. The Crow's legacy has been raped for years. How can anyone look at this and think it'll work. How can Bradley Cooper see this and want to be a part of it?
  • grimjob
    nevermind. Cooper isn't a part of this. Wise decision.

    Why so many of you use the word gay as something negative? Homophobic Winds over
    • Those comments solidify my reason for never commenting here. So many people are a) 12 years old or b) have the mental capacity and vocabulary limitations of a 12 year old or c) are simply ignorant and unable to comment intelligently. Sad. 
      • Xerxexx
        Not all of us.
        • Correct. Oddly enough, you are one of the names I recognize as providing worthwhile thoughts.
      • Richie G
        My name is Gaynor and I have no problem with its use in either context. However its original meaning was 'happy' and all of you imposed your own meanings on it so screw the lot of you!!!
    • Mr. Tibbs
      I'm sorry, but some things are just else am I supposed to describe a fannypack?
  • Matrix8
    JMGPG Don't be gay!
  • Buzzfunk
    Terrible terrible and more terrible.  Cooper is, im sorry, just not a good actor. He has a boring face and is just like Russel Brand, overrated. I really do not understand why these people get the work they do...I really dont
    • Xerxexx
      That's a bad comparison. Unlike Brand, Cooper has shown some true talent...take Limitless for example, he took that role and soared with it.
  • lando
    looks like manji from blade of the immortal...not fillin it
  • random_hero
    Just no if they remake this i will persoanly hunt down every persoon involed and stab them while they sleep
    • Jflauter
      please let me hold the pillow on thier faces while you do
  • WoodSon
    holy crap i thought this was an April fools prank, but I just checked my calendar and we're in mid November! Please no remake! 
  • Richie G
    apart from the first one, none of these show clear design concepts and none of 'em communicate what tone they're going for, but its the static poses that kill it for me. If you can't even covey movement relinquish your pencil now
  • Anonymous
    i didn't even like the first one
    • John
      The first I thought was... OK.
  • Carl
    What a load of shit.
  • I dig the guy but this is HORRIBLE. As far as I'm concerned, Proyas' Brandon Lee original is the only one period.
  • the flying rotflcopterman
    epic comments.
  • Anonymous
    I have no words for this shit other than "Go fuck yourself". 
  • Sirrous
    No, not working. Glad they shelved Bradley Cooper's take. Still like Brandon Lee's look, he pulled it off.
  • cheap bras
    Amazing write-up! This could aid plenty of people find out more about this particular issue. Are you keen to integrate video clips coupled with these? It would absolutely help out. Your conclusion was spot on and thanks to you; I probably won’t have to describe everything to my pals. I can simply direct them here!
