Fans of The Crow might be happy to hear that The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus is rumored to be the latest actor to be up for a role in The Crow remake.
The news comes from Schmoes Know, which has been getting a lot of big movie scoops lately. According to their source, Reedus is the top choice of the studio to take on a character named James. There's no information on who this James character is, but if he's cast he will join actor Luke Evans who has already been cast in the lead role of Eric Draven.
The site also claims that Kristen Stewart was up for the role of Shelly in the film, but thankfully producers wised up and “shied away from the idea after hearing that she wouldn’t attract an audience.”
It seems like this remake is actually headed in the right direction. Casting Evans, possibly Reedus, and realizing Stewart is a terrible choice are all steps to turning this into a good movie.
The movie is set to be directed by Javier Gutierrez, from a script written by Cliff Dorfman. Comic creator James O'Barr is also working on the film as a consultant. The movie is supposed to start production in 2014. As of right now there is no release date.
