Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston Lands Lead Role In The Crow Remake


At the Lexington Comic and Toy Convention, The Crow creator James O'Barr revealed that Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston has indeed landed the lead role in Relativity Studios' remake of The Crow.

O'Barr toldĀ Dread Central that Huston has "definitely been cast." O'Barr had been excited for Luke Evans to the play the part but he left the project and then O'Barr championed Sam Witwer and even though Huston got the part instead, that hasn't dampened his mood. He said he was "really happy with that choice."

Corin Hardy ("The Hallow") will direct the remake/reboot of Alex Proyas' 1994 film. The original starred the late Brandon Lee as the revenge-obsessed Eric Draven, who was killed on the set of the film because of a prop gun accident.

    Some classics don't need a re-make.

    This is total BS! You cannot remake this movie because this is the best movie out of all the crows. They tried to do a second and third one and it failed miserably. You can just not make this remake. The original will be a disgrace if this remake is done and I'm not going to have that.

  2. Still think they should have gotten Ville Valo.

  3. No remake is needed, There are literally hundreds of books out there that could be made in to movies. Another Hollywierd remake is neither wanted or needed. If you really want to make more money off the Crow? Just re-release the original to the theaters like Disney does with "Sleeping Beauty" every 20 years Now Hollwierd movie moguls get thee to a library!.
