Sounds like what legion should have been..motion capture meaning? Like scanner darkly? Or is Bradley cooper just wearing the suit and doing the voice of what will appear to be an actual demon? I thought he was chosen to be Lucifer because it was trying to be like Constantine and devils advocate where the devil is portrayed as just so evil he’s not a big monster he’s just a guy in a suit. Also Cooper is a good looking feller as the devil should be so i’m pretty stoked
Um , the film is both motion-capture and live-action like ” Avatar ” , ” Sin City ” ,” Hugo ” and ” Beowulf ” . The motion-capture is mainly to allow the actors to seamlessly blend into the film`s three fantastic locations : Heaven , Hell and Eden . Furthermore , ” A Scanner Darkly ” , ” Polar Express ” and the upcoming ” Tintin ” were filmed in live-action and converted to 3-D Animation in Post-Production . In other words , that`s not what motion-capture normally looks like . Bradley in an earlier interview and preliminary concept art of Lucifer both confirm Bradley will still look like himself , albeit a bit more angelic for most of the film and demonic towards the end . Bradley was cast for three reasons :
1 . He`s been a fan of the Milton poem ” Paradise Lost ” and particularly the portrayal of Lucifer since College , infact it`s what inspired him to become an Actor in the first place and lobbied hard for the Part which
high-profile Actors like Colin Farrell , Ben Affleck , Tom Cruise , Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg all turned down for fear of type-casting .
2 . He looks quite a bit like the stereotypical Devil ( curly reddish-brown hair , unearthly eyes , beard ) without makeup .
3 . He made a Video with his friend Wes where he read lines from the Poem , convincing Proyas to consider him and eventually cast him with Proyas declaring in an E-Mail to Bradley , ” Satan Lives ! ” , to express how impressed he was of Bradley`s audition tape .
The motion-capture ” Tron-suit ” shown here will likely be digitally altered into Medieval-style armor for the final film .
why are you yelling at me?
Midnight Meat Train, Paradise Lost and attached to The Crow, I wonder if there’s a dark side to Bradley Cooper we don’t know about.
love midnight meat train!!!! Great film. It was one of my favorites for a long time.
This is even better news than Del Toro not playing Kahn! This guy was soo soo wrong for The Crow! Whats with all the remakes and reboots BTW? Hollywood sucks but I guess we are worse for paying for all this junk.
why not re-release a remastered version of The Crow with extra footage. I’m sure plenty of people would go see it.
Ironically bradley cooper leaves the crow remake to do paradise lost, which is directed by the director of the original ‘crow’ film. if done right right paradise lost seems like it could be really cool, i always enjoy angel and demon type stuff so i’ll most likely see this in thearters.
Remake is uncessary, but a reboot with a different character of a different race or gender or even a different time would be great.
My gut feeling is Cooper would have surprised people with the Crow character. At first I thought the guy was just shallow barely leading man fluff but that seems to be turning around a little with each new role. He really needs a bad guy, or flawed, or evil character to shed the image many have of him.
Thank GoD !
LEAVE the originals how they are, and leave the bad actors out of it, I don’t think Tatum or Cooper are suitable to take up Brandon’s legacy. Some things in history just shouldn’t be changed or remade.
