This year, a reboot of The Crow was in development with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) sitting at the helm and Bradley Cooper to star as the eponymous character who returns from the grave to exact revenge.
Ever wonder what the visual style was going to look like? Furthermore, how Cooper might look as The Crow? Well, concept art from the film has flown our way giving us a sense of the film’s color palette and Cooper’s makeup design, hairstyle and wardrobe. The designs are by the production’s Diego Latorre who worked on “The Hulk” for Marvel and the upcoming “Batman Europa” for DC Comics. His other credits include Fringe and Dante’s Inferno.
Latorre’s tells us: “The Crow images published are very early production sketches and are based in my own visual interpretation of the character and not necessarily in Apaches Entertainment and director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo vision.”
You can find more art from Diego via DiegoLatorre.com. Without a director or actor, The Crow reboot is currently at a standstill until new talent comes aboard. Fresnadillo has since moved on to Highlander.
What do you think of the art and what could have been?
