It appears that F. Javier Gutierrez has found his Crow…
Despite his hectic schedule, Luke Evans could soon be cast in the 39-year-old Spanish filmmaker’s reboot of The Crow franchise.
The Welsh actor was the original choice, but he was just cast as the lead in Dracula Year Zero, serves as the villain in Fast & Furious 6 and is portraying Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Evans seemed unavailable because of production on Dracula and promotion on The Hobbit.
After looking at Tom Hiddleston and Alexander Skarsgard, Gutierrez and the film’s producers have decided to push the start date to early next year to accommodate Evans’ schedule and ultimately secure the actor.
Producers and Evans are currently in negotiations with a deal expected soon.
The role of The Crow was originated by Brandon Lee, who died tragically during production on the 1994 Alex Proyas-directed revenge story based on the James O’Barr comic book series.
