Luke Evans To Play 'The Crow' In Gutierrez' Reboot
Reported by Outsiders - 2013.05.04
There was talk to use Tom Hiddleston or Alexander Skarsgard but Relativity Media decided to reschedule their start date and go with their original choice of Luke Evans to play The Crow.
The franchise reboot is being helmed by F. Javier Gutierrez and Evans was the first pick but he was too busy to accept with being cast as the lead in Dracula Year Zero, playing the villain in Fast & Furious 6 and is Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Other were talked about but with their schedules, it was best to wait, reschedule and they are now in negotiations and a deal is expected to be made.
