It seems there was a huge race going on for the title character of F. Javier Gutierrez’s Crow franchise. The likes of Tom Hiddleston, Alexander Skarsgard, and James McAvoy were all up for the role. As it turns out, Luke Evans (The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug) will now take on role made famous by the late Brandon Lee. Relativity Media is relaunching the franchise based on the James O’Barr comic book series. To accommodate Evans’ hectic work schedule the film’s start date has been pushed back to early 2014.
What are your thoughts Maniacs? Do we need to revisit The Crow? Is Luke Evans the right actor for the role?
