    Bradley Cooper Flies From 'The Crow,' Mark Wahlberg & Channing Tatum Sought To Go Goth

    The road to "The Crow" remake/reboot hasn't been without its bumps. Things seemed to moving along swimmingly with Relativity pushing the project ahead, with "28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo at the helm and Bradley Cooper set to take the lead role. Things got derailed slightly when The Weinstein Company launched a lawsuit against Relativity regarding the rights to the franchise -- the case is now in arbitration -- it put the project on hold for a couple of months, enough time for Cooper to start booking his plans for the rest of the year, and even though the legal imbroglio is still being resolved, a new writer, Alex Tse ("Wa...

Russell -- who have worked together on three films so far, "Three Kings," "I Heart Huckabees" and the...

    Mark Wahlberg Re-Uniting With David O. Russell For 'The Silver Linings Playbook'

    Film Will Seemingly Shoot Ahead Of Video Game Adaptation 'Uncharted' The first time David O. Russell teamed up with Mark Wahlberg, it was on the outstanding "Three Kings," but their follow-up was something of a mixed bag: "I Heart Huckabees" divided critics, and was mostly ignored by audiences. But Wahlberg was brilliant in it, and their third collaboration, "The Fighter," was far more successful, picking up Oscar nominations and a hefty box office take, and the two seemed to be a good team. Unfortunately, their next mooted film was the video game adaptation "Uncharted" which, while we have faith that Russell would turn out something more int...
