The Hobbit actor has hinted that he may be exiting the remake alongside F Javier Gutiérrez.
"No at the minute The Crow is not, not for me," Evans told Den of Geek.
"I mean I'm sure it's going to go ahead at some point, but I have other projects that are greenlit and ready to go and projects that I'm very interested in and you know, I can't wait much longer."

Just when luck appeared to be swinging back in favor for Relativity Media’s long-gestating reboot of The Crow, not to mention news of Corin Hardy stepping in to direct in lieu of F. Javier Gutiérrez, it appears as though Luke Evans may soon follow the latter filmmaker out the door.
The Dracula Untold star is currently doing the press circuit for The Battle of the Five Armies, and in an interview with Den of Geek, Evans weighed in on the status of the long-gestating reboot.
“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, but I have other projects that are greenlit and ready to go and projects that I’m very interested in and you know, I can’t wait much longer! »

Well, so much for being optimistic...
On October 31st I published a report based on a recent interview with James O'Barr, the creator of The Crow. In that interview, the writer described how he had come around on the idea of a remake, and shed some light on how involved he was with the process. This, after being a staunch critic against the idea. Suddenly, there was a feeling that this wasn't just another sad case of Hollywood beating a horse that was better left dead. I recall that as I wrote it, and as the comments began coming in, that maybe we were in store for something that could be pretty cool.
Then came this week's double-header of dodgy news, and now I think I'm ready to say, "Let it die!"

Relativity Media’s remake of The Crow has picked up a new director, with Deadline revealing that Corin Hardy (The Hallow) has signed on to the project as a replacement for F. Javier Gutiérrez, who vacated the director’s chair in favour of another instalment in The Ring series.
The reboot of the 1994 adaptation of James O’Barr’s cult comic book has already passed through the hands of directors Stephen Norrington and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, and with production set to get underway in the Spring, Relativity will surely be hoping that Hardy stays the course.

With production set to begin early next year, the planned The Crow reboot, with Luke Evans donning the iconic make up, has lost director F. Javier Gutierrez due to his signing on to direct the next movie in The Ring franchise. Both movie's shooting dates conflicted, so Gutierrez stepped away from The Crow, leaving the vacant directors chair to be filled by Corin Hardy. A relative new comer, his feature debut, The Hallow, will be released next year, and he has directed a number of shorts and music videos, including The Prodigy's Warrior's Dance, and Devlin and Ed Sheeran's Watchtower. A look at his back catalogue, which includes a number of stop motion animations, shows a dark visual flair which should suit the project. I haven't been open to the project since it was announced (the original holds a very special place in my heart), but Hardy coming on board, »

Yesterday, it was announced that Relativity Studios had hired Corin Hardy to direct their reboot of The Crow, which will be Hardy's first live-action feature film. He replaces F. Javier Gutiérrez, who left the project to work on the next installment of The Ring. It sounds like Relativity Studios will need a new leading man, based on a recent interview with Luke Evans ("Dracula Untold"). Den Of Geek asked Evans how The Crow was progessing and he replied: "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, but I have other projects that are greenlit and ready to go and projects that I’m very interested in and you know, I can’t wait much longer! [laughs]" Sounds to me like Evans is no longer attached. »
Gutiérrez exited the project due to his commitment to the newest film in horror series The Ring.
Filmmaker Edgar Wright recommended Hardy to producer Edward R Pressman, who worked on the original 1994 and has returned for the reboot.
It centres around a murdered man who comes back to life for revenge.
It’s been flapping its way through development limbo for years now, burning through different directors and potential casting choices. But the new cinematic take on James O’Barr’s graphic novel The Crow might finally be on track with director Corin Hardy.He’s stepping in to replace F. Javier Gutierrez, who had been lining up to direct but has switched instead to focus on a new Ring horror movie. Luke Evans is still attached to play Eric Draven, murdered by thugs alongside his fiancée, who is brought back to vengeful life by mysterious forces to hunt down his attackers.Cliff Dorfman wrote the most recent draft of the script, and producer Edward R. Pressman hopes to have production under way in the spring. Hardy might not be a well-known mainstream name yet, but he’s aiming to change that. It doesn't hurt that he was recommended to Pressman »
A remake of The Crow has been in the works for a number of years now, but a big part of what keeps the film in development hell is the fact that it can't seem to keep a director attached. We've seen many names come and go - but this latest one may wind up being the one that sticks. Deadline has gotten word that Relativity Media is now looking to hand the keys to The Crow over to Corin Hardy, an up-and-coming director who only recently completed filming his directorial debut (an independent UK horror movie called The Hallow).Interestingly, Hardy found his way to the project in part due to Edgar Wright - who recommended the filmmaker to producer Edward R. Pressman. The plan is to start filming in the spring. We've been hearing talk of The Crow remake being made since 2008, and in that time we have »
The Crow remake that was being developed by director F. Javier Gutiérrez has a new director. According to THR, Relativity Media has hired Corin Hardy to direct the movie. Hardy is is a music video director who has a "love for horror and special effects." Does that make him the right guy for the job? He made his feature film debut with a movie called The Hallow, which will be released next year and is about "a scientist and his family who move to the countryside and must fight off vicious creatures living in the woods."
Sounds like a cool movie, but does the filmmaker have what it takes to bring The Crow to life on the big screen? That has yet to be seen. The movie will be directly based on the comic book created by James O’Barr, who is also working on the development of the film. »

The rebooted version of 1994 comic book classic, The Crow, has found a new director. The previously-attached F. Javier Gutiérrez has bowed out, and relative newcomer Corin Hardy will take the reins on the gothic revenge actioner.
Per Deadline, Hardy’s name was suggested to Edward R. Pressman – who produced the original and is tackling the same role for the remake – by none other than Edgar Wright. A self-confessed fanboy, Wright was impressed by Hardy’s first short, Butterfly, and the edgy music videos he crafted for Ed Sheeran, Biffy Clyro, Keane, Paolo Nutini and The Prodigy, and recommended him for the gig. Hardy’s feature debut, The Hallow, traces the story of family who move to the rural confines of countryside and wind up fighting a load of creatures in the woods. It’s yet to be released, but will hopefully land a date for 2015.

A remake of The Crow, based on the James O’Barr graphic novel series of the same name, has been in the works for years. Names like Bradley Cooper, James McAvoy and Tom Hiddleston have flirted with the project, and directors like Juan Carlos Fresnadillo have come and gone as well. Now the project has lost another director with F. Javier Gutierrez departing the project after being attached for awhile (he's not directing the next chapter of The Ring franchise). But Deadline reports a replacement has already been named with Relativity Studios hiring rising filmmaker Corin Hardy to take a crack at the film. Read on! Here's an acclaimed, animated short called Butterfly that Hardy (above) previously directed: Hardy also made his live-action debut with a film called The Hallow that will get released next year, and if you need any convincing, it was Edgar Wright who suggested him to »

Dealing with unbearable pain from an unspeakable loss, 1994’s The Crow still leaves an indelible mark on viewers with its foreboding atmosphere, haunting soundtrack, and tremendous final performance by the late Brandon Lee.

The Crow remake is still alive and kicking, and now it has a new director…again. Relativity Studios has been developing a new adaptation of the James O’Barr graphic novel for some time now, initially setting Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to direct, followed by J. Javier Gutierrez when he dropped out. A number of actors have been linked to the project over the years, from Bradley Cooper to Tom Hiddleston to James McAvoy. Nearly two years ago, with Gutierrez attached to direct, the studio finally signed Luke Evans as the new lead. Word has been quiet on the project as of late, but now we have confirmation that it is indeed still in the works, albeit with another new director: Corin Hardy. Hit the jump for more, including the immensely talented filmmaker who suggested Hardy for the job. Per Deadline, Gutierrez dropped out of The Crow remake after he signed »

Long in development, Relativity Studios' The Crow remake is finally gearing up for a spring start date. Acclaimed music video director Corin Hardy is set to take the helm, replacing F. Javier Gutiérrez. Actor Luke Evans is still not officially signed for the lead.
Corin Hardy is set to make his feature film directorial debut with the horror thriller The Hallow, about a family battling a demonic force in the woods. It will be in theaters sometime in 2015. He first achieved acclaim for his short Butterfly (which is included at the bottom of this story). He has also directed music videos for a vast array of artists, including Ed Sheeran, Biffy Clyro, Keane, Paolo Nutini and The Prodigy.
It seems Corin Hardy will direct Relativity Studios'' reboot/remake of The Crow, which is based on the acclaimed graphic novel by James O'Barr, filmed once already as the fan-favourite 1994 movie starring the late Brandon Lee. Hardy made his live action feature directing debut on a film called The Hallow, which will be released next year. Prior to that he got noticed for his animated short Butterfly, and for directing a number of music videos for the likes of Keane, Ed Dheeran and The Prodigy. We've had multiple reports that Luke Evans (The Hobbit films) is set to star as Eric Draven, and though Deadline make no mention of that, we'll have to assume he's still on board. Hardy replaces F. Javier Gutiérrez, who left the project to direct the next installment of The Ring franchise. Production is slated to start next Spring. »
Since the tragic death of Brandon Lee during production on The Crow, we have had several mediocre sequels and a boring TV series. A major reboot has been in the planning stages for years and despite locking down Luke Evans as star, the film has lost multiple directors ranging from Stephen Norrington, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, and most recently Francisco Javier Gutiérrez. With Gutierrez dropping out to direct the next Ring movie, producer Edward Pressman has been searching for someone to take »

No shirt and no underwear? Not a problem for Bai Ling. The 48-year-old actress, who is undoubtedly defying her age in her latest barely-there get-up, showed up to the Beverly Hill's premiere of her new flick The Key wearing, well...practically nothing. Seemingly giving Miley Cyrus a run for her money, The Crow star sported some black sequin straps in place of a shirt as well as a skirt which showed off her lady parts, wearing a strategically placed red flower in order to stop her outfit from slipping into the full frontal zone. Ling teamed her head-turning ensemble with a gold key necklace, rocking heavy eye-makeup and a bright red lip, while keeping her »
