Bradley Cooper may have found the perfect chaser for "The Hangover Part II": a starring role in the upcoming remake of "The Crow."
Entertainment Weekly reports that Cooper is being eyed to portray the supernatural crime fighter in director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's adaptation of the cult '80s comic book.
Cooper would play Eric Draven, a rock musician who is murdered while trying to save his wife from attackers. After Draven is resurrected, he seeks vengeance on his killers.
Brandon Lee starred in the popular 1994 film adaptation of "The Crow," and tragically died on set after a prop gun misfired.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Mark Wahlberg was in talks for Fresnadillo's remake, but the deal fell through, leaving the role open for Cooper.
What do you think of Cooper being cast in "The Crow"?
