You may recognize Luke Evans from "Immortals," "The Raven" or "Clash of the Titans," but he'll soon be a household name due to his roles in two big 2013 blockbusters. First, he'll be seen as the decidedly English villain in the current release "Fast and Furious 6," facing down Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Gina Carano, Ludacris, and more. He'll then segue into his role as the Bard in the next two films in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" saga. HitFix's Guy Lodge sat down with Evans to discuss his "Fast 6" character of Owen, who Evans describes as a rich ex-military type who's »

Chris Black possesses a power that could lead to the destruction of the current regime, and they will stop at nothing to destroy him. The chase is on as Chris runs for his life in this sci-fi thriller set in an alternate and futuristic Los Angeles.

Liam Hemsworth was originally attached to play the lead but that plan has since fizzled.
This is an interesting casting choice, given the fact the role seemed to suit a younger actor.

Who needs "300"-style Spartan abs when you can just blow robots up with your telekinetic powers?
That's a question you'll have to ask Gerard Butler, since according to Deadline he and his abs are in negotiations to replace Liam Hemsworth as the lead in Universal's feature version of sci-fi short "The Raven." No relation to that bird crap John Cusack movie of the same name, or the Lou Reed album either.
And, no, it's not the same movie as "The Crow," either. Nice try.
Ricardo de Montreuil's 6-minute futuristic conspiracy thriller exploded the internet in 2010, looking like a legit summer blockbuster right out of the gate with its combo of well-integrated CGI, tight action and lens flares galore.

Gerard Butler is in talks to join the big screen adaptation of the sci-fi action short film The Raven. The feature film was announced back in 2010, and it's been floating around in development hell for awhile. It's good to see that Universal Pictures is finally moving forward with it.
The original film was directed by Ricardo de Montreuil and was shot in Los Angeles on the Red camera with a budget of $5,000 dollars. It's an investment that really paid off for him. We previously heard that Montreuil will direct the film from a script written by Justin Marks.
The story follows Chris Black, who "possesses a power that could lead to the destruction of the current regime, and they will stop at nothing to destroy him. The chase is on as Chris runs for his life in this sci-fi thriller set in an alternate and futuristic Los Angeles."

The last time we spoke to Spanish Composer Lucas Vidal he’d just finished working on the Henry Cavill / Bruce Willis movie The Cold Light of Day and John Cusack’s Edgar Allen Poe film The Raven but now the up and coming composer has been given the biggest film of his career in the form of Fast and Furious 6.
We chat to Lucas about how working on a movie of this scale compares to his previous work and to the lower budget productions that he’s also worked on since The Raven. If you missed our interview with him last year which explains how he got in the film industry and made his mark, click right here.
HeyUGuys: How soon is it that you finish scoring before the movie comes out?
Lucas Vidal: I finished three weeks ago. As you know these kind of films continue editing until »

The Cabining: “Todd and Bruce, a hapless screenwriting team, get one last shot at success thanks to Todd’s wealthy stepdad, Serge. If they pen a worthy horror script, Serge will fund the entire project. But there is one condition – the script must be complete in two weeks. With the deadline looming and no fresh ideas, Todd and Bruce head to Shangri-La, a serene artist’s retreat, with the hope that the peace and company of fellow artists will inspire greatness… or, failing greatness, at least enough for straight-to-dvd.

Name after name has been thrown out there in connection with the lead role for the forthcoming reboot of 'The Crow'. But whilst British stars such as Tom Hiddleston ('Avengers Assemble') and James McAvoy ('X-Men: First Class') have been rumoured for the role only to be quashed days later it seemed more likely that Alexander Skarsgard ('True Blood') was a cert for the part, if he wanted it. But now we learn that the part is officially that of Welsh star Luke Evans. The Brit actor, who was direcor F. Javier Gutierrez's initial choice, has gained the role and Relativity Media are even pushing back the start date for production to early 2014 so as to accomodate Evans' schedule.

The Crow reboot takes a step closer to reality after finding its star in Luke Evans. Evans will play Eric Draven, the role held by Brandon Lee in Alex Proyas' The Crow, based on the comic book by James O'Barr. Lee died tragically while filming after a prop gun filled with blanks misfired and fatally wounded the actor.
Evans (Immortals, The Raven) was reportedly the first choice of The Crow reboot director F. Javier-Gutierrez, but Evans' schedule was already jam-packed with Fast & Furious 6, Dracula: Year Zero, and the next two The Hobbit movies. After the studio went after a few other options that didn't pan out, they decided to push back production on The Crow to accomodate Evans' schedule. The Crow will go into production in early 2014.

Almost a month ago Luke Evans was cast to play the lead character in Universal's Dracula, a film that has been in development for quite a long time, once attracting Sam Worthington in the lead role with Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City) directing. Proyas' project fell apart and now Universal is putting it back together with Evans as the first aboard to tell the story of a young prince who, when the lives of his wife and child are put in danger by a bloodthirsty sultan, risks his soul to save them, and in the process becomes the first vampire. First time feature director Gary Shore is helming the project, which should give you some idea of just what exactly Universal is putting together. Shore first came to the attention of most for his non-commissioned trailer for The Wolverine, which you can watch to the right. By the looks »
