THE CROW (2015): Luke Evans Drops Out

Luke Evans

Luke Evans Drops Out OF The Crow Reboot. Luke Evans publicist informed The Wrap that the actor has officially dropped out of the upcoming The Crow reboot in order to pursue other projects.  This news does not come as a surprise after the comments Evans made to Den Of Geek last month when he stated,

At the minute The Crow is not, not for me, I think it’s a little… I mean I’m sure it’s going to go ahead at some point, but I have other projects that are greenlit and ready to go and projects that I’m very interested in and you know, I can’t wait much longer

The production of The Crow reboot has been rather tumultuous as the film has now lost a lead actor as well as director. The film was originally set to be helmed by Before The Fall director F. Javier Gutiérrez until he was replaced by the film’s current director Corin Hardy.

Released in 1994 and directed by Alex Proyas, the original The Crow starred Brandon Lee. Although The Crow was not appreciated at the time of release, the film’s iconic Gothic style and dark themes endeared it to a hardcore group of fans that continued to grow exponentially until The Crow reached cult movie status.

Here is a brief synopsis of the original film,

The night before his wedding, musician Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) and his fiancée are brutally murdered by members of a violent inner-city gang. On the anniversary of their death, Eric rises from the grave and assumes the gothic mantle of the Crow, a supernatural avenger. Tracking down the thugs responsible for the crimes and mercilessly murdering them, Eric eventually confronts head gangster Top Dollar (Michael Wincott) to complete his macabre mission.
