If you were looking forward to catching Bradley Cooper as The Crow any time soon, you can stop—because the Hangover star has backed out of the project due to scheduling conflicts with a couple other of his upcoming flicks.

Cooper was going to star in the film—which is to be directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who also directed the zombie sequel 28 Weeks Later—but unfortunately he's also supposed to be shooting Paradise Lost at the same time, and Paradise Lost ... won.

So who might be wearing that white makeup now? According to The Hollywood Reporter, two names have popped up— Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum.

Wahlberg was rumored to have been offered the role last October, so it would make sense that with Cooper out, the Planet of the Apes star would be in the running once more.

As for Tatum, who'll be repeating his role as Duke in GI Joe 2: Retaliation, this seems to be the first time his name has come up regarding stepping into the role of the supernatural avenger.

What do you think? Either of these guys right for the part? And if you don't like them, who should take over as the Crow?
