The Crow reboot can't seem to catch a break. After it looked like the movie was all set to go with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) directing and Bradley Cooper starring, the project had a setback 2 months ago when Cooper dropped out.

Supposedly, they were looking at other lead actors, including Channing Tatum and Mark Wahlberg, but that must not have gone too well, because a new report reveals that director Carlos Fresnadillo has also left the project.

According to Twitch, Relativity is looking for a new director and F Javier Gutierrez (Before the Fall) is one name that is being considered. As for Fresnadillo, the report also states he may be taking on a reboot of Highlander, but consider it just a rumor at this point.

We're assuming that Relativity is still going to move forward with their plans for a "gritty reboot" based on the original comic book series. Here is the original press release issued in June:

“Relativity Media’s President of Worldwide Production, Tucker Tooley, and Edward R. Pressman, producer behind the cult-classicThe Crow franchise, announced today they have attached Alex Tse (Watchmen) to write their reinvention of The Crow, the 1994 critically acclaimed, sensation based on the comic book series and comic strip by James O’Barr.

Directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later), The Crow adaptation will be a gritty reboot of the gothic iconic character Eric Draven, who returns from the grave as The Crow on a mission to avenge his wife’s murder, so that his soul can finally rest. Bradley Cooper (Limitless) is attached to star as Draven. The original film is known for its breakthrough visual style as well as its unique production design and cinematography. Fresnadillo and Tse are perfectly suited to bring these beloved characters back to life, and to create a world worthy of this modern classic.”
