Tom Hiddleston (“Marvel’s The Avengers”) is in early discussions to play Eric Draven in the re-imagining of “The Crow” at Relativity Media.
Based on the James O’Barr comic, the story follows a man who returns from beyond the grave to avenge his death.
Hiddleston reportedly sent a makeup test that he did on his own in London. He will undergo a proper makeup test in the coming days.
F. Javier Gutierrez helms this version which aims to begin shooting this Fall. Ed Pressman, Kevin Misher, Ryan Kavanaugh and Jeff Most are producing.
The property was previously adapted by Alex Proyas in 1994 with Brandon Lee starring. Lee famously lost his life during production due to an accident on-set.
