When the idea of remaking The Crow was first mooted, US actors such as Mark Wahlberg, Bradley Cooper, and Channing Tatum were attached, but in the last few months it’s seemed director F. Javier Gutiérrez (Before The Fall) has been keen to find a Brit to take on the role of Eric Draven.
In the last few month, James McAvoy and Tom Hiddleston have been rumoured for the role, but now Deadline reports that Luke Evans is in talks for the part. He’ll play rock star Eric Draven, who comes back to life to seek vengeance against those who murdered him.
Brandon Lee starred in director Alex Proyas’ 1994 original film The Crow, based on James O’Barr’s comic book series. It isn’t known when production will begin, but it may not be until early next year.
