Hey guys, remember a couple weeks ago when we mentioned that Tom Hiddleston was in talks to play the lead in the upcoming reboot of "The Crow?" Considering Hiddleston is still hot as hell thanks to his turn as Loki in the record smashing box office blockbuster "The Avengers," and that he was aggressively pursuing the role, it seemed like pretty much a done deal, right?
Well, not so much apparently, because according to Deadline, the folks at Relativity Media have decided to pass on Hiddleston after all and instead are planning to sign up Luke Evans to play the undead goth superhero. Get More »
Step aside, Brandon Lee ... Oh wait. (Surely not too soon? C'mon. It's been 20 years.) Get More »
Whenever a movie studio announces plans for another remake, the reaction among fans and pundits is always the same: Hollywood doesn't have any new ideas.
But we like to look on the bright side of things, which is why we're so happy when we hear of a cool remake or reboot. Hey, who needs new ideas when there are already so many great old ideas waiting to be rediscovered?
With that in mind, we've compiled a list of 50 — that's right, 50! — upcoming Hollywood remakes that tickle our fancy. Because if these films were good the first time, you never know, you might just enjoy them even more the second time around. Get More »
Oh, Eric Draven ... once again, we hardly knew ye.
Things aren't looking good for the planned reboot of "The Crow." It looked like all systems were go for a while, but the property is now wallowing in a lawsuit and production has stalled. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo ("28 Weeks Later") is no longer attached to direct, and Bradley Cooper will no longer be playing the lead role of slain rock musician and undead avenger, Eric Draven.

Bradley Cooper is apparently going to let bygones be bygones, as he won't be rising from the dead on a mission of vengeance after all.
We had a feeling something was going to have to be dropped from Cooper's crazy schedule just to make time for him to get a few hours of sleep every night for the next year, and it looks like that something is "The Crow," according to Heat Vision.
Cooper will no longer be starring as Eric Draven, the slain musician who comes back from the grave one year after his death to avenge the double murder of himself and his fiancee. Relativity Media is already putting the feelers out for possible replacements, which include Mark Wahlberg, who was vaguely attached to the project earlier this year, and Channing Tatum. Get More »
As fans prepare for the June 3 release of "X-Men: First Class," many are wondering just how the mutant bromance between Professor Xavier and Magneto will play out. But beyond that, there's another, even bigger question being asked by America: Haven't we seen this before?
That's because "X-Men: First Class" is the latest entry in Hollywood's hottest trend, reboots, which take an old property -- really, it's been five whole years since "X-Men: Last Stand" -- and re-imagine it for a new generation in the hopes of launching a revitalized franchise.
With that in mind, here are some of the highest profile reboots coming soon to theaters near you. In each case, you may have seen it before, but with franchises this awesome, Hollywood is betting you'll want to see it again. Get More »
He's dealt with a "Hangover" or two. But how will Bradley Cooper take to being resurrected from the dead?
Hot on the heels of news that "28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will be directing the reboot of "The Crow" comes word that the "A-Team" star is in talks to play the lead role of Eric Draven, according to Heat Vision. Get More »
Eric Draven lives again.
"The Crow" has been a franchise that Hollywood has inexplicably rendered an utter and colossal failure. The original 1994 film starring the late, great Brandon Lee and directed by Alex Proyas was a genre masterpiece; a dark gothic fairy tale of tragic romance and violent revenge, with Lee as a slain musician brought back to life one year after he and his fiance are murdered to "put the wrong things right."

Ever since Relativity Media announced they were planning a remake of the 1994 comic book cult-classic "The Crow," fans have been buzzing over who could possibly fill the iconic shoes of the late Brandon Lee.
Robert Pattinson? Joseph Gordon-Levitt, maybe? Alexander Skaarsgard?
According to Bloody Disgusting, Relativity has decided and their choice is... Mark Wahlberg?
Wait, what? Get More »
