More casting rumors abound for the lead role in F. Javier Gutierrez’s remake of The Crow. Turns out the previously reported Tom Hiddleston has flown the coop, and now Relativity Media is circling “True Blood”‘s Alexander Skarsgard to rise from the grave for vengeance.
We’ll just file this one under rumor for now because nothing is official. It’s amazing the devil of a time the powers-that-be are having in terms of nailing down a star. Could Hollywood’s best and brightest be afraid of the long talked about Curse of The Crow? Who knows. When we know more, you’ll know more.
If signed, Skarsgard will play Eric Draven in the story based on the James O’Barr comic book series that was previously adapted as a 1994 Miramax movie starring Brandon Lee. In case you’re one of the ten people on the planet who haven’t seen the original, it follows a man who returns from beyond the grave to avenge his death.
Ed Pressman of Pressman Film and Kevin Misher of Misher Films are producing with Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and Jeff Most. Dan Farah of Farah Films will executive produce with Relativity’s Tucker Tooley.
Look for more soon.
