Annoyingly, Relativity and director Corin Hardy are searching for a new star for The Crow reboot, as Luke Evans has officially exited the project to pursue other projects, his publicist has confirmed to TheWrap.
Honestly, it’s all for the best as Evans wasn’t all that impressive in Dracula Untold, and we’re personally hoping that Thor‘s Tom Hiddleston comes back around to it. It’s just that, seriously, come on, make the movie already….
The site continued, Evans was poised to play Eric Draven when F. Javier Gutierrez was attached to direct The Crow, but production was delayed and with no new start date in sight, Evans was forced to pass and move on.
Hardy signed on in early December but has been busy with post-production on his feature debut The Hallow, which premieres at Sundance this week. Now that Evans has officially parted ways with the project, Hardy will have the opportunity to put together his own vision for the film.
