Yes, "The Crow" reboot/remake/whatever is actually happening for real. This morning, Eric Draven himself, Luke Evans, hit Twitter to reveal, "First day of my Intense training for The Crow done!" And while he might be drinking power shakes and getting his abs into six pack shape, the rest of the movie around him has yet to be cast though it seems those wheels are turning.

Yes, "The Crow" reboot/remake/whatever is actually happening for real. This morning, Eric Draven himself, Luke Evans, hit Twitter to reveal, "First day of my Intense training for The Crow done!" And while he might be drinking power shakes and getting his abs into six-pack shape, the rest of the movie around him has yet to be cast, though it seems those wheels are turning.

Schmoes Know, who've had their listening devices in the right places lately, are reporting that "The Walking Dead" and "Boondock Saints" star Norman Reedus is the "top choice" to play the character of James. And that's about it. But it was probably inevitable that following the actor's AMC success that the movies would be knocking to try and tap into that. Meanwhile, and slightly more dubious, the same report claims that Kristen Stewart was considered for the part of Shelley but ultimately producers “shied away from the idea after hearing that she wouldn’t attract an audience.” Uh, yeah, because Luke Evans and Norman Reedus will pack them in? As always, take everything with big package of salt.

Anyway, "The Crow" seems to be puttering along with F. Javier Gutierrez (“Before The Fall”) slated to direct. And we'd reckon more official news should be coming soon, especially with Evans already beefing up.
