What the hell is going on with Bradley Cooper and all these underworld roles? First he’s in talks to play The Crow, which makes so much sense it makes me want to chuck my desk out the window, and now he’s in negotiations to play the man himself, Lucifer, in a feature adaptation of Milton’s “Paradise Lost.” The project, which has been gestating at Legendary for years, tells the tale of the struggle between archangels Michael (possibly played by Ed Helms or Zach Galifianakis) and Lucifer.
It seems that Alex Proyas, director of the original The Crow, is the force (and director) behind the adaptation of Milton’s epic poem. But there is no indication that Proyas has anything to do with the developing Crow reboot, which is directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.
Which begs the question: WHY DO PEOPLE INVOLVED WITH THE CROW LOVE BRADLEY COOPER SO MUCH?
Perhaps his wavy hair and winning smile really play to their goth sensibilities. Lord knows they play to mine. (Variety)
