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.

    I will always be a Kristen Stewart fan. I think she gives 100% effort with her career. Too many people forget about her famous predecessors, Angelina Jolie and Elizabeth Taylor that also interfered in marriages and didn't even apologize. At least Kristen tried to make amends.

    Girl hasnt came out with a movie in over a year, yet shes still more relevant that most actresses in hollywood. This article is obviously using her name for hits and look how many responses theyve gotten. Obviously her names has draw. Shes going to do amazing in the years to come no matter what the haters think. Shes been in this industry since she was 10 so no she not living off of 15 mintutes of fame. I think she'll act for many more years then end up workiny behind the camera. Shes a very smart girl and i think she would do well in producing and directing one day.

    New York magazine recently ran a comparison of Stewart's career and Jennifer Lawrence's, pointing out that Jen is the youngest actress to ever get two Oscar nominations and one win, whereas Stewart has none.

    Given her cheating scandal and declining career, it's not a surprise that the producers of The Crow decided to pass on her. None of her indies have ever made a profit, and the big studios won't touch her with a ten foot pole now. Universal's refusal to go forward with SW2 proves that. She's tainted goods, everyone but her tiny fanbase knows it.

  • JR | November 24, 2013 11:24 PM

    LOL... wow, you got to hate it to this type of hater. Declining career...? Really? Did it ever occur to you she is doing the films she only wants to do...? You're a hater who falls into one of two different categories. Either the jealous one or the sheep one, but suffice to say, you bleed fabrication. Here's the obvious that makes you sound like a quack. SW2 will be made which you will ignore... and her fan base is huge which the box office will prove which you will ignore. Understand the particulars of an Indie before you harp on why hers hasn't made a profit... and how the heck would you know if big studios will or won't touch her? You don't and when they do, you will ignore the facts and come up with other lies to try justifying your hatred. Do the world a favor and grow up. Kristen Stewart will be around for a long time and it's unhealthy for someone to hate her for the next forty or fifty years.

  • nelly | November 24, 2013 4:35 PM

    Funny how shes constsntly being compared to Jennifer Lawrence. If Kristen is so bad then why compare them at all. Wouldnt it make sense tk conpare her to the likes of other actresses. But as for Jennifer Lawrence that Oscar went undeserved. It was a romcom movie and she in no way gave a better performace than Chastain, Riva or really any of the other nominees. She won because of all her PR. Jennifer will have a great career but she'll only be as relevant as she is now until Hollywood finds themselves another IT girl. Kristen has never played that game or has been the most liked by the media yet shes owed her haters for the last five years.

  • Stewart fan | November 24, 2013 7:02 AMReply

    At least she works hard and earns her living, nor is she trying to be manufactured into something she's not. What's wrong with not wanting to socialize with the rest of fake Hollywood? All of you need to stop being in denial about how dysfunctional the rest of Hollywood really is, and yes, I'm referring to that favorite mainstream and indie actor and actress of yours.

  • Nadia310 | November 24, 2013 3:35 AMReply

  • merlot | November 23, 2013 2:06 PMReply

    Yet another remake in Hollyweird! Can't they come up with anything original anymore? As for the hate on Kristen Stewart, can someone explain to me what's wrong with indie films? Personally I prefer those to the big budget tinsel town stuff that are either successes or flops but nothing in between. And she's quite talented in a few of the indies that she's done already and Sils Maria has a very interesting storyline that I for one will be at an art house theatre to see. However, I find it hard to even think that she would consider the Crow......I wonder if someone sent her manager the script thinking they could use her name? As for Reedus, if anyone watches the Walking Dead, you would know he's a very talented actor but again, not sure if he's the right person for the remake of this movie.

  • Gypsy | November 23, 2013 10:17 AMReply

    I totally agree that outside of the Twilight movies with Robert Pattinson she doesn't have an audience, the Snow White movies was Charlize Theron star power.
    Besides, there is a large portion of movie goers including minority audiences who tend to flock to the theater who now have a negative view of her, since she pulled out of the Will Smith movie "Focus".

  • JR | November 24, 2013 11:31 PM

    Really Gypsy? So, when she proved she has an audience outside the Twilight movies with Snow White, you hypothesize inside that warped mind of yours that it isn't because of Kristen, but because of Charlize. You are a laughing stock - and motivated by jealous hatred. You are also in denial and lack facts. She pulled out of Focus long before Will Smith was a blurp on the radar. I swear your haters are living on another planet.

  • Valentine | November 24, 2013 1:42 PM

    She got the worst reviews of her life for SWATH, and it's Rotten on RT. She was horrible in it, and the audience came to see Oscar winner Charlize Theron and hunk Chris Hemsworth.

    Her fans can't deal with the fact that all her indies bomb and audiences just don't like her. The Crow producers were smart to avoid her. Just like the other studios are doing.

    Are you kidding me ? who in their right mind want to see a remake of the Crow ?.. the one and only crow movie is the original with Lee . It seems they didn't learn anything from the other sequels or remake or whatever , didn't see them but they all sucked !! And that Stewart mention was all for them to get some internet traction out of that and low and behold all haters are here .. typical .. she wouldn't touch that crap even for free , Cooper and whalberg got off that crazy train smart move on their part . And just beacause a person is a fan of Stewart does not make them idiots or dumb not all of us are obsessed she always been an indie actor and she's going back to that there is nothing wrong with that . Do some of you have any idea how many good actors are doing indie and small movies lately ? A lot of them due to the fact that Hollywood business folks have no clue what an original story is like . If a movie doesn't gross millions within 3 days it's an automatic failure .. Really ? by who's standards ? And that dumb article in Esquire ... yeah .. real relevant article for the dumb fan boys . And not all Stewart fans are ignorant about movies by the way i will challenge any of you idiots on your knowledge of movies ..LOL.. i bet you one thing i will win !!!! so suck on this !

    You should know since you are running your mouth that Kristen Stewart has made three movies in the past 6 months. Yes they haven't been released yet they are in post production. Also she has three more movies lined up in 2014, one being SWATH2. The reason she got bad reviews for SWATH is because she cheated on Robert Pattinson with old man Rupert Saunders. You know the lech. The producers thought that Kristen was going to drop out because Rob did not want Kristen anywhere near Rupert. When Kristen and Robert broke up, She said she wanted to make the second movie without Rupert. Who did they pick Rupert or Kristen. You are right it was Kristen. She is loved overseas also. SWATH made over 450 million dollars. Kristen is the one that drew them in. She is making another movie in April another Indie yep. It has already sold and got it's backing from the asian market. Why because of Kristen Stewart. If you haters are going to open your mouth you should at least know what you are talking about. Camp XRay is in post production right now. Kristen worked like a dog on that set. You know why they hired her??? Because with her name up their they didn't have a worry about financing. She also got a writen award from the x soldiers who did her training. They said she was great that they had never had anyone who worked so hard to look and act like a real Marine. She also ended up with a busted lip. She didn't move fast enough. she continued to work. Chris the hunter in SWATH also didn't move fast enough and she ended up punching him in the mouth. I'm surprised she didn't break her hand. Yes there are fans out there who are fanatics, there are also fans out there like me who know what we are talking about. Did any of you haters out there see her in the movie ON the Road, You know the one she was nominated for an award in Canes in 2012, no so you really don't have a very good grasp of her acting ability.

  • Caro | November 23, 2013 3:49 AMReply

    I love Kristen Stewart but not even she could motivate me to see "The Crow"! I didn't like it the first time and have zero desire to see a remake! I could care less about Reedus or Evans because I don't even know who they are! Plus, another remake? Can't Hollywood come up with an original concept?

  • Leticia parsels | February 1, 2014 11:02 PM

    I just like to say I totally agree with you. As for the movie On The Road I really liked it.I wonder how hard she worked to learn that dance scene? Anyway I am a big fan I might even be obsessed but she has talent. Oh and our bdays are on the same day.lol like that masters.just wanted to give Kristen props she its great.

  • Gypsy | November 23, 2013 10:24 AM

    Don't you think calling her a "B" "Actress" is a bit of a stretch, don't you have to be able to act before getting the title Actor/Actress?
    People who stand in front of the cameras looking petulant and zoned out should be called statues, an A statue or a B/C statue.

  • Reality Check | November 23, 2013 3:04 AMReply

    Kristen didn't step foot on a movie set for 18 months, and when she finally did land a job, it was in a micro budget indie that still doesn't have distribution. CXR will probably go straight to dvd, and her supporting role in a foreign film that few people will likely see is nothing to crow about.

    She isn't landing good roles in prestigious films, she isn't getting lead roles with auteur directors or master filmmakers, and no big studio is rushing to hire her. She's taking what she can get, which are bit parts in movies with first time directors and ex-cons for co-stars.

    Her fans don't seem to be able to tell a solid indie with a chance of being good and successful and the kind of D list dreck she's flailing around in. She trashed her own career and reputation, and a year and a half later we're all seeing the results of her poor life choices. Actions do have consequences. Her fans need to stop whining and deal with her downward spiral.

  • lol | November 23, 2013 11:59 AM

    @Jean,is this article about Robert Pattinson?Maybe you crazy kstew fans should stop stalking this man and spreading lies about his private life all over the internet?He's living his life,making connections with people from movie industry and prepering for his next role.Focus on your ks,maybe she's sleeping with her next director.Or maybe mental hospital is waiting for her.Move on.

  • Jean | November 23, 2013 4:39 AM

    you really are pressed, aren't you? pressed that kristen is eking out a decent indie career for herself. pressed that kristen is still working for balenciaga and has a new campaign. she paid the price, and now she has moved on along with most of the rest of the world except for you remaining few clinging to your hate. no one claims that kristen is on the top of the a list. no one claims that camp has the same cachet at other indies and we know it may not make any big film festivals. we are happy to see her doing solid work in indies. we are happy that she has films like sils maria, anesthesia, equals, and american ultra. as fans we don't need her to be working with spielberg. we're happy that she had good solid work. MOVE ON. Rob and her have been broken up for ages. go focus on him and whatever club he is at this weekend. you are right. actions do have consequences. kristen faced her consequences and has moved on. the consequences for Rob's actions are starting to catch up to him in far as his looks and his eyes, and people are noticing besides the naive fans. you may want to focus on that sweetie.

  • Taylor | November 23, 2013 3:36 AM

    I guess the producers of The Crow are avid Esquire magazine readers. Esquire recently declared that Kristen Stewart was "irrelevant." They specifically said that Stewart is aloof, miserable and unkempt, that she is no movie star. Basically, she doesn't meet the standards of a movie star.

    What a major diss. They know she trashed her brand when she chose to cheat with a married man. In 2009, Esquire called her out for her "air of snarling entitlement." That's pretty bad when a legitimate editorial magazine, not a tabloid, points out how arrogant you are. They've always had her number, and now others are finally seeing her for what she really is. Irrelevant and no box office draw.

  • lilred6986 | November 23, 2013 12:58 AMReply

    If anything, Kristen Stewart would have been the only reason to go see a remake of The Crow.
    Besides, any remake of The Crow will NEVER be as Great without Brandon Lee as the Original.
    They're wasting their time and dishonoring a Legend.

  • Kristen RULES!!! | November 22, 2013 11:29 PMReply

    Kristen Stewart would have drawn lots of support and attention for this movie. There lost not hers. They are using her name and image for recognition on this movie. What a bunch of losers to use her for their gain. She probably turned them down! She's doing great with her career. They need to "CROW" about something else! Rise above them Kristen your fans support you! We love you baby girl. :-)

  • wenna | November 22, 2013 8:58 PMReply

    Embarrassed K-Stew fan. But since the production used her for dubious reasons, I will attempt to promote Kristen. Next year look for these 3 Indies: Sils Maria which also stars Juliette Binoche and Chloe-Grace Moretz, Camp-XRay which also stars Payman Maadi(Peyman Moaadi), Anesthesia which stars Sam Waterston and Glenn Close. Thanks.

  • Kristen STILL RULES! | November 23, 2013 12:47 PM

    @Summersby... the indie movies that Kristen played in were not "flops" as you say. Your opinion is bias and based on hate for KS that is apparent. you are stating in your comment that she is "universally popular" at least you have the guts to admit that. Just because a movie does not make "Oscar" status does not mean that the movie is not good. The fact that you think Pattinson is a bigger star shows not only your ignorance but your agenda as well. Actors working together is called an ensemble not being "propped up" idiot. You must be a big fan of Kristen I can tell you are following her career and her personal life, maybe you should get a life of your own and follow Pattinson more closely. Don't forget to take your hatred with you as you exit!

    Did the "baby girl" reference upset you? Good! Mission accomplished! BABY GIRL will be just fine! However, there is no hope for the idiocy of an IDIOT that IDIOT being you!

  • summersby | November 23, 2013 3:09 AM

    to @kristen rules!!! You made me laugh, thanks. Where were all her fans for On The Road, WTTR and The Runaways? All three were massive flops. All of her indies have bombed. If she's so universally popular, when why are the only films that ever show a profit are ones where she's propped up between bigger stars, like Pattinson, Hemsworth and Theron?

    And calling her "baby gurl," is just another way to infantalize her. She's not a child, she's an adult who's made some very bad decisions and some very bad films. OTR was Rotten on RT, and she got the worst reviews of her life for SWATH, which Universal seems disinterested in making a sequel to. They usually rush to made a sequel to a popular film, but Kristen seems to have turned them off to SW2. Too bad she didn't stop and think about that before rushing off to hook up with Rupert Sanders.

  • NO BIG DEAL! | November 23, 2013 12:21 AM

    Kristen has seven films in the pipeline. I hardly call that "not working."
    Looks like a lot of people here believe the tabloid trash. That speaks volumes about your intelligence

  • Just the facts | November 23, 2013 3:19 AM

    Kristen Stewart films announced and not made: (1) Cali; (2) Focus; (3) Big Shoe.; (4.) SW2, (5.) Lie Down in Darkness. She does NOT have 7 films in the pipeline. She's just rumored to be attached to Equals, that's not a done deal and frankly, that film may never get made, it certainly isn't getting funded based on her name being floated.

    CXR has no distribution and will likely go straight to dvd. Sils Maria may get a small art house 2 week showing and then go to VOD, it will not be a hit. She worked 3 days on Anesthesia, that's a cameo, not a good role. Elizabeth Banks just said that she didn't know if or when The Big Shoe would be made, it's not even in pre-production, so that doesn't count, either.

    All she really has is American Ultra, a small indie. So please stop spreading misinformation. Her IMDB page is not accurate or reflective of reality.

  • Karma | November 22, 2013 2:59 PM

    Bit parts that film in 3 days don't count. Homewrecker can't get a cover even though it's known she puts out.
