Luke Evans on THE CROW Reboot and Comic Integrity

The new film project for The Crow seems to be coming together quickly. Luke Evans is set to star in the film, and Norman Reedus might also be joining the production. Since the film is still in pre-production, there's still very little information on how the story will be portrayed, but in a recently interview with Metro UK, Evans talks about Brandon Lee and explains that it will keep the integrity of the original comic. 

"It is incredibly sad that Brandon died making the movie. He was a very talented actor. It is a very beautiful story, The Crow. It is a very tragic story with huge emotional themes. We plan to tell the story differently and with a lot of integrity to the original comic book."

Comic creator James O'Barr is working as a creative consultant on the film to help guide it in the right direction, and I think that gives comfort to a lot of fans. The movie will be directed by F. Javier Gutierrez from a script by Cliff Dorfman. I think this movie could actually end up being good. Production on the film will start in 2014, and as of right now there is no release date set.
