The Crow Reboot May Have It's Lead

2 hours ago | 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, »

7 hours ago | 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, »

Jack Huston Is Up For "The Crow" Reboot

9 hours ago | 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.

The Crow Now Looking At Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston To Star

9 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When you've had a steady TV gig like Jack Huston did on Boardwalk Empire, it's always nerve wracking when that gig comes to an end. While trying to transfer to films is always an option, it doesn't always work for actors primarily known for their work on the small screen. Lucky for Huston though, he has a gig playing the lead in Ben Hur already lined up. And if Relativity Studios has their way, he could be filling the recently vacated lead in the remake of The Crow. Deadline has the inside track on information that pegs Jack, paternal nephew of Angelica Huston, in the lead role of Eric Draven. Draven, who becomes the eponymous hero after being slain alongside his pregnant fiancee, lives a second life for vengeance against the criminal scum that took away his ultimate happiness. The 1994 Alex Proyas-directed original is a cult classic, with Brandon Lee »

Jack Huston Eyed As The New Crow

13 hours ago | 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, »

Jack Huston Wanted To Lead The Crow Remake

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that Relativity Studios is looking at Jack Huston to take the lead in their upcoming Corin Hardy-directed remake of The Crow. Based on James O’Batt’s graphic novel (which already saw an excellent adaptation in 1994 helmed by Alex Proyas), the film will have Huston star as Eric Draven, “a rock musician who is revived from the dead to avenge his murder and death of his fiancée.”

Though it’s been through a bit of a troubled production, what with several actors/directors coming and going (Luke Evans was set to star at one point), it looks as if the project is finally about to take off. And while I’m a big fan of the original and am hesitant to see a remake, I think that Huston is a solid choice to lead it.

The actor has significantly increased his star power ever since appearing »

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

14 hours ago | 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. »

Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston Eyed For Lead Role In The Crow Reboot

14 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Deadline, Relativity Studios are now eyeing Jack Hustin to take on the title role in their remake of The Crow with director Corin Hardy. The Hobbit's Luke Evans was at one point attached but recently dropped out. Talks are said to still be in the early stages, but this would be another big job for the British actor since finishing his critically acclaimed stint in Boardwalk Empire. He's already landed the leading role in Ben-Hur and will also be seen in Pride And Prejudice And Zombies. The original adaptation of of the James O'Barr's graphic novel The Crow was released in 1994, and starred Brandon Lee who was tragically killed during filming. Do you think that Hustin is the right man for the job? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on this news in the usual place. »

Five Film Composers that Hollywood Needs Back

12 February 2015 4:35 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hollywood has no shortage of talented composers crafting mostly serviceable tunes for the next young adult literary adaptation or prestige awards tearjerker. But for every auteur like Hans Zimmer and John Williams, you have musical yes men pounding out ominous notes in anticipation of the next horror movie jump scare or making ratatat noise to underscore a superhero chase scene. The film world screams for diverse sounds, but is often left wanting when scores become interchangeable to feed the Hollywood machine. The current film decade is no different from any other in terms of talent, mediocrity, and ingenuity, but could always use a boost from professionals who bring specificity to the table. These five forgotten or diminished artists, each among them with varied yet singular skills, are screaming to be brought back into the Hollywood fold to create their signature sounds.

9 soundtracks that outshone their movies: Tron Legacy, Twilight and more

12 February 2015 4:01 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

These days no movie can get away without a tie-in soundtrack. The latest is Fifty Shades of Grey, which brings together everyone from Beyoncé, Sia and Ellie Goulding.

However, there's always a danger that the album can outshine the movie it originates from. Digital Spy highlights 9 instances where this is the case.

1. Tron: Legacy (2010)

Disney's belated sequel to its cult '80s hit Tron unfortunately forgot to bother with anything approaching a coherent story or believable characters - but what a display of visuals and sound. Daft Punk took care of the latter, crafting a score that fizzed with electronic pulses ripped straight from The Grid.

2. The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)

Despite being so critically derided, the Twilight movies were consistently able to churn out impressive soundtracks. The best of them was 2009's New Moon, which collected new songs from Thom Yorke, Death Cab for Cutie, Lykke Li, The Killers, »

Sam Witwer Wanted For "Crow" Remake

12 February 2015 2:59 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After being attached for over a year and having had to turn down projects in that time, it is unsurprising that Luke Evans ultimately had to bail on "The Crow" reboot last month due to his busy schedule.

Of course, his departure has led to the inevitable question about who may be hired to replace him. No actor has yet been selected, but the comic's creator James O'Barr made an appearance at Wizard World Madison over the weekend and came up with one suggestion.

According to Blastr, O'Barr has reportedly been in contact with former "Smallville" and "Being Human" actor Sam Witwer for some time about the role and believes the actor has "the look and ability" to portray Eric Draven. However O'Barr still needs to convince director Corin Hardy of the choice:

'The Crow' Creator Wants 'Smallville' Actor for Remake

11 February 2015 5:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The long-awaited reboot of The Crow hit another stumbling block last month, when actor Luke Evans backed out of the lead role as Eric Draven, due to his busy schedule. While an actor hasn't officially stepped in yet, The Crow comic book creator James O'Barr made an appearance at Wizard World Madison over the weekend, where he offered his choice to replace Luke Evans, Smallville and Being Human star Sam Witwer. James O'Barr has reportedly been in contact with Sam Witwer for some time about the role, and he believes the actor has "the look and ability" to portray Eric Draven. Here's an excerpt from Blastr's report, revealing that James O'Barr still needs to convince new director Corin Hardy that Sam Witwer is the right choice.

James O'Barr Wants Smallville Actor Sam Witwer For The Crow

11 February 2015 4:04 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Aaron Sager from Blastr was at Wizard World Madison Comic Con this past Saturday and listened to James O'Barr speak at the event. He has a breakdown of what O'Barr discussed regarding The Crow reboot that has had trouble getting off the ground. Like, Luke Evans (he Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) recently left the project once his option expire. O'Barr says Evans become a big star since he signed that first contract for The Crow and became to pricey to resign. That is why he is out. Not just because he is too busy. O'Barr said film has already spent $20 million in pre-production. Which is kind of expected since there has been several directors in the past that were attached to it and all of them would require a certain amount of pre-production work. As for the new lead, O'Barr has set his sights on Sam Witwer, who is »

‘Midnight Rider’ Prosecutors Face Historic Hurdles In Sarah Jones Case

3 February 2015 2:51 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: Prosecutors in the Midnight Rider trial, set to begin March 9, are looking to become the first ever to convict filmmakers on manslaughter charges. In the 100 years between the death of Sarah Jones and the first film-related deaths — on July 1, 1914, when 16-year-old actress Grace McHugh drowned and cameraman Owen Carter died trying to rescue her while filming a scene for the movie Across The Border – more than 80 people have died in 52 fatal accidents while filming in the U.S. Only two resulted in indictments, none in convictions.

The last time a manslaughter case went before a jury was nearly 30 years ago, in the infamous Twilight Zone case, which ended in the acquittals of director John Landis and four co-defendants. “It was a very difficult case to prosecute,” Lea D’Agostino, the deputy district attorney who prosecuted the Twilight Zone case, later said. “You didn’t have people who went in maliciously to do something. »

Luke Evans Drops Out Of The Crow Remake

25 January 2015 10:16 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | 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.
