Luke Evans is The Crow


el cuervo1F. Javier Gutierrez has been working on a remake of The Crow and finally he has found his leading man, Welsh actor Luke Evans. Evans seemed to be unavailable because of production on Dracula and promotion on The Hobbit

The distributor looked at Tom Hiddleston and more recently Alexander Skarsgard, the latter of whom has a bunch of offers after Warner Bros halted Tarzan.

Ultimately, they have decided to push the start date to early next year to accommodate his schedule in order to secure Evans, who is currently promoting the release of Fast 6.

He has big shoes to fill if he want’s to come close to Brandon Lee’s performance. It will be very interesting how this relative newcomer will do. Personally I’m not sure how I feel about a reboot to The Crow. It was a film that was an instant cult classic and I don’t see much room for any kind of improvement. However, as with all remakes, only time will tell if this will have any legs.

        I am curious with a sea of talented actors available to play the role what is so special about Luke Evans that they want to delay the film for him? Is he that big of a name and I have just missed the boat?

        I was going to ask why re-make this film at all. But, thinking on it. That’s all films are these days aren’t they.

        I really, really don’t want a remake of this film…but this guy looks better than some of the other proposed Erics…
