After rumors of James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, and Alexander Skarsgard taking on the lead role of Eric Draven in The Crow remake, Relativity Media has ended up casting Luke Evans in the movie. Evans starred in The Immortals, plays the villain in Fast & Furious 6, Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and was just cast as Dracula in Dracula Year Zero.
Out of everyone that's been recently rumored to have the role, I think he might be the best choice. This time around James O'Barr's gothic comic book will be directed by F. Javier Gutierrez. The story follows a man brutally murdered who comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée’s murder.
Whether you like it or not, a new Crow movie has willed itself into existence. All we can do know is hope that it turns out good.
