Weitz to Script 'Star Wars' Spin-off, West Directing 'Blob' Remake and Reynolds Happy 'Deadpool' is On the Way

26 January 2015 4:24 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Chris Weitz (About A Boy, Cinderella) is coming on to rewrite the script for Gareth Edwards' Star Wars spin-off after Gary Whitta bounced after completing a first draft. THR Simon West (The Mechanic, The Expendables 2) will direct a remake of the 1958 horror classic The Blob, which will likely be a complete nightmare with West saying things such as, "With modern CGI we can now fully realize the potential of The Blob. The world I create will be totally believable, immersive and emotionally satisfying. It's a thrill to introduce an enduring icon to a wider audience and a whole new era of fans." Ummmm, apparently you missed what made the first movie such a classic. Good luck with that as this won't be the first time it has been remade, but hopefully the last. Deadline Ryan Reynolds spoke with MTV about Deadpool finally getting off the ground telling the site, »

Luke Evans The Latest Departure From 'The Crow' Reboot

26 January 2015 8:54 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I've been following the unraveling of the Crow reboot for a few months now. After an interview came to light that gave fans hope for the film, with series creator James O'Barr explaining how he came to support the project and outlining how passionately director F. Javier Gutierrez and star Luke Evans rallied to get him onboard, things began falling apart. Just over a month later, Gutierrez left the project. Within a week of that, rumblings started up that Evans would soon follow him out the door.

Well, now it's official.

The Wrap is reporting that Evans will no longer play Eric Draven, and that the actor's camp is citing scheduling conflicts as the primary reason. The primary scheduling conflict? The fact that the production was crawling along at a snail's pace. While Relativity Media found a replacement director rather quickly, with Corin Hardy being tapped to do it, the »

Luke Evans Exits The Crow Reboot

26 January 2015 7:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After lots of stops and starts for Relativity’s high-profile reboot of cult classic The Crow, Luke Evans has officially backed away from the project. The Hobbit actor had been attached to the lead role since May of last year, when F. Javier Gutierrez was signed to direct, but the many delays experienced by the project left Evans, whose star has been on the rise thanks to this fall’s Dracula Untold, with no choice other than to jump ship.

In December, the actor hinted that he had gone cold on The Crow despite Relativity recruiting director Corin Hardy, whose horror pic The Hallow premieres at Sundance this year, to replace Gutierrez. At that time, Evans was quoted as saying:

“It’s not, no. No at the minute… ‘The Crow’ is not, not for me, I think it’s a little… I mean I’m sure it’s going to go ahead at some point, »

Luke Evans Exits The Crow Remake

26 January 2015 6:42 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Luke Evans became attached to star in The Crow shortly after it was revealed that F. Javier Gutiérrez would be directing a reboot. However, with the filmmaker committing to a new take on The Ring horror franchise, the movie has been in limbo, with little known director Corin Hardy later being chosen by the studio to take over directing duties.

Talking to HitFix over the weekend, Evans was quoted as saying, “Right now I’m not sure where it is, I don’t know what’s happening with it. I think it’s a question probably to ask [distributor] Relativity…they’re the ones who are really holding the strings to this story and this character. But yeah, I don’t think it’s gonna be something I’m gonna be doing for a while. I’ve got about four or five different projects which I’m lining up for this year, »

The Crow: Luke Evans officially departs the reboot

25 January 2015 10:31 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Luke Evans follows Bradley Cooper, and walks away from the planned remake/reboot of The Crow.

We broke the news last month that the remake of The Crow was facing another personnel problem, as Luke Evans told us that his crowded schedule was making starring in the film unlikely. "I have other projects that are greenlit and ready to go", he said, adding that "I can't wait much longer!"

And he isn't waiting for The Crow to get going any more. It's been confirmed that he's become the latest to leave the project, which previously had Bradley Cooper loosely attached to star (and Tom Hiddleston had been linked too, at one stage).

Still on board to direct is Corin Hardy, having himself replace F Javier Gutierrez. Hardy continues to make positive noises about the project.

We're still none the wiser as to when the reboot of The Crow will officially get going. »

Luke Evans Officially Off The Crow Reboot

Though the new take on The Crow seemed to be headed in a more positive direction recently with the hiring of promising, up-and-coming director Corin Hardy, he’ll now have to find a new lead actor for the project, as Luke Evans has officially decided to leave in favour of other film jobs.The Crow has been stalking its way through development limbo for a long time now, burning through potential people to play vengeful, haunted hero Eric Draven and a number of directors including F. Javier Gutiérrez. But nothing seemed to fall into place, even when Evans was hired as the lead.According to The Wrap, Evans has decided he wants to pursue other work and can’t keep holding his schedule open. On the bright side for Hardy, this now means he can pursue the film exactly as he sees it, complete with finding his own Eric Draven. »

Luke Evans Has Officially Left The Crow Reboot, Get The Details

25 January 2015 2:49 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Last month, rumors flew that Dracula Untold star Luke Evans may be dropping out of The Crow reboot. Well, the film has had yet another setback, as Evan.s publicist has confirmed that the actor has officially parted ways with the reboot to pursue other projects. The news first broke by The Wrap, when the star exited the project officially just yesterday. Evans was bound to play Eric Draven, a rock musician who is brought back to life in order to avenge his murder and the death of his fiancee. But with seemingly endless production delays, it was only natural that Evans probably got sick of waiting around, and moved on. So now, Relativity and the director of the reboot, Corin Hardy are searching for a new star. The film originally set Tom Hiddleston as the title role, but he also ultimately passed on the project. There were rumors that »

Luke Evans Drops Out Of The Crow Remake

25 January 2015 10:16 AM, PST | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Things haven't been going that well for The Crow reboot. Last month, we heard that it would be getting a new director, and following that were rumours that lead star Luke Evans was also dropping out, unhappy that the project didn't seem to be moving forward (not surprising since he signed on for the role in 2013). Now, The Wrap are confirming that Evans has indeed left the remake. With an expected shooting date of late spring, this current predicament is certainly not where the project wants to be. Word is that Relativity Studios and director Corin Hardy are currently on the hunt for a replacement. As a huge fan of the 1994 original, this just hammers home my belief that this just shouldn't be happening. Sure, having the comic's creator James O'Barr on board as creative consultant, and new director Corin Hardy's gothic sensibilities, it did shape up to be »

Luke Evans Finally Stones ‘The Crow’

25 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He’s been attached to the movie reboot for a while, but Luke Evans’ patience has clearly run out with news of his departure from The Crow. Evans originally signed when F. Javier Gutierrez was in the director’s chair, but when he moved on the production got delayed. Corin Hardy has been brought in to line the lenses, but the meteoric rise of the film’s star has led Relativity to hunt for a new Eric Draven.

The franchise started in 1994 and instantly gained cult status via the on-set death of Brandon Lee (son of Bruce), who was killed by a malfunctioning firearm. Lee played Draven, a rock star who rises from the grave as a ghostly avenger after he and his fiancee are brutally murdered by a gang. Adapted from James O’Barr’s comic book, it spawned three sequels and a short-lived TV series.

Horror Round-Up: The Crow Reboot, The Greasy Strangler, Hellions

24 January 2015 6:21 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Welcome to another horror news round-up! This time around, we have an update on whether or not Luke Evans will play Eric Draven in The Crow reboot, details on the recently announced horror film, The Greasy Strangler, and a clip, poster, and images of Bruce McDonald’s Halloween-set Hellions, making its debut this Sunday night at the Sundance Film Festival.

When Corin Hardy (The Hallow) became attached as the director of the long-gestating reboot of The Crow (after F. Javier Gutiérrez left the director’s chair) back in December, discussions of who would play main character Eric Draven resurfaced, with Luke Evans’ future in the lead role somewhat of a question mark.

Luke Evans confirms departure from The Crow reboot

24 January 2015 3:40 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Luke Evans has confirmed that he has exited The Crow's planned reboot.

The Dracula Untold actor's representative has announced that he recently chose to bow out of the Corin Hardy-directed project, reports TheWrap.

Evans had made comments hinting at his departure from The Crow late last year, although his exact status was not confirmed until Saturday (January 24).

He joined Relativity Media's long-gestating reboot of the 1994 action movie back in 2013, when Francisco Javier Gutiérrez was scheduled to direct.

Gutiérrez exited the project last summer, leading the studio to hire The Hallow filmmaker Hardy.

Relativity Media first announced its intentions to reboot The Crow more than five years ago.

Other actors linked to the project in the past include Alexander Skarsgård, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, James McAvoy and Tom Hiddleston.
