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.
