Will Mark Wahlberg or Channing Tatum succeed the late Brandon Lee in "The Crow"?

The supernatural action project which is based on the 1990s comic had Juan Carlos Fresnadillo set to direct when Cooper who was attached as the title character, dropped out due to scheduling conflicts for another upcoming supernatural film "Paradise Lost".
