Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston sought for The Crow reboot

23 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jack Huston has reportedly emerged as the leading candidate to star in the remake of The Crow.

Luke Evans became the latest actor to quit the long-rumoured reboot earlier this year, after Tom Hiddleston and Alexander Skarsgård were previously linked to the project.

Former Boardwalk Empire star Huston has now entered formal talks with Relativity Studios to lead the movie, reports Deadline.

Huston's interest in the project coincides with the hiring of The Hallow's Corin Hardy as director.

The Crow reboot will re-envision the story of a murdered rock musician who rises from the dead with a mission of vengeance.

Huston is currently filming the big budget historical drama Ben-Hur for MGM. »

Boardwalk Empire’s Jack Huston linked to The Crow remake

27 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A seamlessly endless string of Hollywood actors have been linked to one of the longest-mooted screen remakes in recent memory, The Crow. With the latest name, Luke Evans, leaving the role earlier in the year, it seemed as though the people behind the new version would be searching forever.

Well, Deadline is reporting that the hunt for Eric Draven may (again) be over. Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston is the latest name to be linked with role, and if he signs on, he would star in the film after he finishes work on the Ben-Hur remake for MGM and Paramount.

James O’Barr’s dark comic book antihero was first seen in a 1989 four-issue mini-series, before it was adapted into a feature film directed by Alex Proyas (I, Robot) and starred the late Brandon Lee, who died in an accident on-set. A television show and a few sequels followed, but »

27 February 2015 7:59 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For the fanbase out there who's still interested to see Relativity Studios reboot the cult comic book property The Crow, the film is finally making progress again.

For those who don't know, Huston will play Eric Draven, who's resurrected as The Crow to avenge his wife's murder so he can reunite with her in the hereafter. For my money, Evans was smart to leave the project, »

The Crow Reboot May Have It's Lead

27 February 2015 5:37 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Many fans of The Crow, myself included, were hopeful that a reboot could do justice to Alex Proyas dark, gothic vision of the James O Barr graphic novel, and Luke Evans seemed like a perfect fit for the lead role. However, after Evans dropped out last month with scheduling conflicts, the project was stalled and there were fears it may not get off the ground at all. Today then, comes good news in the form of Jack Huston, the man who may now don the white facepaint and go on a supernatural revenge spree as murdered musician Eric Draven. Huston is currently filming Ben-Hur with Timur Bekmambetov (that's gonna be one insane movie) and there are hopes he will accept the part and begin filming on The Crow as early as April. Corin Hardy is still on board to direct, and the movie is finally gaining traction again. Like the saying goes, »

Jack Huston Could Be The Crow

26 February 2015 11:58 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO/ Miramax

Having got its feathers all in a flutter with names coming and going from The Crow remake, Deadline reveals that they may have finally landed on a potential lead. Following the departure of Luke Evans who was set to take the role, the trade reveals that Boardwalk Empire star, Jack Huston could be next on the list.

Nothing is set in stone just yet, but the studio are in talks with Huston for the project that will be an adaptation of the James O’Barr graphic novel. Corin Hardy is already down to direct, joining shortly before Evans ditched the picture, with cameras set to start later this year.

Adapted in 1994 and starring Brandon Lee, the story follows Eric Draven, who returns from the grave to avenge his girlfriend’s murder and his own. Unable to stop what is already dead, the criminals are forced to face Eric and his supernatural powers, »

The Crow: now Jack Huston is linked with lead role

26 February 2015 10:31 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bradley Cooper, Tom Hiddleston and Luke Evans have all been linked with The Crow reboot. Now it's Jack Huston's turn.

The planned reboot of The Crow movies hasn't quite gone to plan so far. In fact, that'd be something of an understatement. The lead role in the film has been linked to the likes of Bradley Cooper and Tom Hiddleston thus far, and last year, Luke Evans was attached to star. Evans, however, told us that "I can't wait much longer" at the end of last year, and eventually he too dropped out of the project.

Still on board to direct is Corin Hardy, and now a new face has been linked with the lead role. That'd be Jack Huston (of Boardwalk Empire fame), who's currently shooting the new take on Ben Hur. He's got the lead role in that one as well.

Jack Huston Is Up For "The Crow" Reboot

26 February 2015 10:28 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With Luke Evans having walked the other month, Relativity Studios is now said to be targeting Jack Huston ("Boardwalk Empire") to play the lead character in the upcoming remake of "The Crow".

Huston, who recently scored the title role in the "Ben-Hur" remake, is in early talks to join the Corin Hardy-directed new version of "The Crow" which is expected to be a more faithful adaptation of the James O'Barr graphic novel about a murdered man who comes back for revenge.

Brandon Lee starred in Alex Proyas' 1994 film with various other actors taking on the role in assorted sequels. The Cliff Dorfman-scripted reboot is aiming to begin production this spring.

Edward R. Pressman, Kevin Misher, Ryan Kavanaugh, Jeff Most and Jeff Waxman will produce.

Jack Huston Eyed As The New Crow

26 February 2015 6:00 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The planned reboot of The Crow, the dark tale of revenge based on James O’Barr’s graphic novel, was hit by yet another setback last month when Luke Evans dropped out of the lead role to focus on other projects. Production company Relativity has scrambled quickly to try to lock in a new choice and it looks like Jack Huston is the man the team wants to don the make-up and face the tragic tale. Corin Hardy was hired as the latest director back in December, and he’ll now be hoping that the film can finally get back on track, with a shoot pencilled in for this spring. Cliff Dorfman wrote the latest draft of the script, which, like Alex Proyas’ 1994 take, adapts O’Barr’s tale of Eric Draven, a musician murdered by criminals who is brought back from the land of the dead by a mysterious, »

'The Crow' Wants 'Boardwalk Empire' Actor Jack Huston

26 February 2015 4:41 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just over one month after actor Luke Evans dropped out of Relativity Media's The Crow reboot, the studio is in early talks with Jack Huston to replace him. Nothing is set in stone at this time, but the Boardwalk Empire star is the studio's top choice to play Eric Draven. We reported earlier this month that Sam Witwer was the top choice of James O'Barr, who created the comic book the reboot is based on, to take over the title role.

Deadline reports that it isn't ultimately clear if Jack Huston will officially sign on, but "signs are looking good." Relativity reportedly wants to start production this spring, but that will likely depend on how quickly negotiations progress with Jack Huston. The original 1994 adaptation of The Crow starred Brandon Lee as Eric Draven, a rock star who is murdered alongside his fiancee, but then comes back from the dead to seek vengeance. »
