Things haven't been going well for fans of The Crow. First, word got out that star Bradley Cooper was leaving the project thanks to scheduling conflicts. Then, director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo of 28 Weeks Later fame dropped out. Well, the folks at ShockTilYouDrop have a tiny bit of consolation in the form of concept art by Diego Latorre.
Latorre did a great job of recreating Cooper's likeness in a series of pieces showing off different potential looks for the character. If you're unfamiliar with The Crow, it was originally created as a comic book by James O'Barr back in 1989 for now-defunct indie pioneer Caliber Comics. The story revolved around murder victim Eric, who returns to life to get revenge on the men who killed him and his girlfriend.
In 1994 Miramax produced a big screen adaptation starring Brandon Lee who died in an accident while filming. That film was followed by The Crow: City of Angels, The Crow: Salvation, The Crow: Wicked Prayer and a syndicated TV series, The Crow: Stairway to Heaven. Relativity Media intended to reboot the property with Fresnadillo at the helm, but with no director and no actor signed up, we'll just have to wait and see what happens with the project.
