Relativity’s The Crow may have found its Eric Draven. With James McAvoy tied up in the currently filming X-Men: Days of Future Past it appears as though Tom Hiddleston (pictured above; The Avengers) is in talks for the role.
Per The Wrap, “[he] is in early discussions to play Eric Draven in Relativity Media’s reimagining… Hiddleston recently had dinner with producers and sent them a makeup test that he did on his own in London. He will undergo a proper makeup test in the coming days, as the character’s appearance is important to fans of the franchise, who should be delighted with the casting of a major member of the Marvel universe.”
The film is the latest adaptation of James O’Barr’s revenge comic from 1989. F. Javier Gutierrez is still attached to direct. It seems that Cliff Dorfman (Warrior) is now tackling the screenplay. No word on how much of earlier writer Jesse Wigutow’s draft is making it in. Brandon Lee made the franchise famous when he starred in the 1994 adaptation directed by Alex Proyas.
