Mark Wahlberg offered the Lead Role in THE CROW Remake
What the hell!? According to our friends at bloody-disgusting Mark Wahlberg was offered the lead role in the new Crow film being developed at Relativity Media.
Mark Wahlberg? Really? I just don't see it at all. Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against Wahlberg, but I don't see him in this role previously played by Brandon Lee, in the 1994 Alex Proyas directed film. The film is baed on the comic book series by James O'Barr, which follows Eric Draven who is brutally murdered that comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée's murder.
We've been hearing about this Crow reboot for awhile now. Nick Cave has been working on the screenplay and Stephen Norrington (Blade, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen ) is attached to direct. The new story will take place in Detroit, and will be a much different version than Proyas' classic.
Norrington was looking to create a new character and story for the film. He also has said the new movie will be more realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, and almost documentary-style. He hopes to bring the franchise a sharpened different tone for 21st century audiences.
What do you think about Mark Wahlberg possibly taking on the lead role?
