According to reports, Bradley Cooper has planned to shoot for David O Russell"s Silver Linings Playbook this fall. Just after finishing it, the actor would take up the filming of Legendary"s Paradise Lost in the first quarter of next year. Since Relativity has plans on making the high-priority Crow at the same time, he faced scheduling conflicts. So he opted out of the movie.
Now, sources claim that Relativity is considering the names of Channing Tatum and Mark Wahlberg as possible replacements for the lead the role. Walhberg was earlier offered the lead role in The Crow, but a deal never materialized. Another star Tatum is best known for his work in GI Joe and the weepie Dear John.
However, The Crow revolves around a man, who has been brutally murdered, comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancee's murder. Bradley Cooper was to play the undead avenger. Now, it should be seen who (Channing Tatum and Mark Wahlberg) will bag this lead role in the movie.
