'Fast and Furious 6' actor Luke Evans cast as 'The Crow'
"The Crow" will live again.
"Fast and Furious 6" actor Luke Evans is currently in negotiations to star in the anticipated reboot.
Evans was reportedly Relativity Media's first choice to play the lead role, but when scheduling conflicts arose, the producers considered both Tom Hiddleston ("The Avengers") and "True Blood's" Alexander Skarsgard, before Evans was freed up, according to Deadline. Rumors also flew about Bradley Cooper being eyed for the role.
F. Javier Gutierrez ("Before the Fall") is directing from a script by Jesse Wigutow, which is based on James O'Barr comic book and will again center on Eric Draven, a musician who returns from the grave to avenge the girlfriend's murder -- and well as his own.
The 1994 original was directed by Alex Proyas ("I Robot") and starred the late Brendan Lee, who was accidentally killed on the film's set. It spawned three sequels and a short-lived TV series.
The busy Evans will soon be seen as the villain in "Fast and Furious 6," and then as Bard the Bowman in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." He was also recently cast as the lead in "Dracula Year Zero."
