Blond, hot body Bradley Cooper as a Goth action hero? We can't quite picture it, yet, but the 'Limitless' star is in talks to headline a new version of 'The Crow.'

Variety reports that Cooper is in "early negotiations" for the lead role with Relativity Media. He recently flew to Spain to meet with director Juan Carlo Fresnadillo ('28 Days Later'), who was impressed with Cooper's take on the character.

Brandon Lee starred in the first 1994 Crow film as a musician who returns from the grave to avenge his own murder; the son of Bruce Lee tragically died in an on-set accident. He was followed by Vincent Perez in 'The Crow: City of Angels,' then Eric Mabius in 'The Crow: Salvation.'

It's not clear if Fresnadillo will be using the script Goth rocker Nick Cave wrote when director Stephen Norrington was attached. Last fall, Mark Wahlberg was mentioned as the actor who would restart the franchise but 'The Fighter' star ultimately passed on the project.

Is Cooper a good choice for the role? Who would you cast in a 'Crow' reboot?
