Alex Tse Will Resurrect ‘The Crow’ On Paper

Alex Tse cut his teeth and made a name for himself scripting Watchmen, taking the labyrinthine plot structure and bending it to something that made sense for the screen (and for the time restraints of the typical modern movie). It’s that skill paired with his experience working with darker material that makes him a strong choice for his next job.

According to a press release, Tse will be writing The Crow reboot that sees Bradley Cooper stepping out of his wheelhouse to wear a little guy-liner and get broody. This project gets added to the pile which Tse is working through currently (or at least, reportedly working through). Since Watchmen, he’s been connected to scripts for The Phantom Tollboth and The Illustrated Man at Warners, Ninja Scroll for Appaian Way, and a handful of others. With a star ready to roll, The Crow seems like it will take off before those others depending on his time table for finishing the script.

So this is happening. I still can’t get over the mental image of Bradley Cooper dressed and made-up to look like WCW-era Sting.
