Relativity and the Weinstein Company apparently are having quit the issue with casting their lead for their reboot of The Crow.
While some sites are wrongfully slamming the premature announcement of Tom Hiddleston, we can confirm he was in fact in serious talks to topline the revenge thriller based on James O’Barr’s comics. It’s the same issue we’ve been dealing with in breaking Crow scoops – nothing seems to be sticking, even though F. Javier Gutierrez is already location scouting.
Another name being tossed around prematurely is “True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard, pictured above, who may or may not be circling a role. We’ll update you when an official announcement comes out.
In The Crow, a man brutally murdered comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée’s murder.
