Earlier this morning, it was reported that Luke Evans hadn't made up his mind to leave The Crow remake just yet. Now comes word that the actor has officially exited the project, with director Corin Hardy prepared to start an actor search as soon as he gets done promoting his directorial debut The Hallow and this year's Sundance, which is happening as we speak.
Relativity, the studio behind the remake, refused to comment on the situation, but Luke Evans' publicist told The Wrap that the actor walked due to his mounting projects. The Crow is a high priority at Relativity, and it is seen as a franchise with a lot of potential, especially given the original 1994 film's status as a cult classic.
Luke Evans had originally signed onto star in The Crow remake when F. Javier Gutierrez was still attached as a director. While the film was originally set to start shooting in spring of this year, there have been unforeseen delays, and no new start date has been set. Luke Evans hinted back in December that he was not likely to remain with the project, so news of his departure doesn't come as a surprise to anyone involved with the reboot.Though, Relativity had hoped they would be able to convince him to stick around.
F. Javier Gutierrez left so that he could focus on The Ring reboot/sequel Rings. Corin Hardy, a music video director, came aboard in December, but he has been too busy with post-production on The Hallow to concentrate on this upcoming The Crow, which is supposed to stick to James O'Barr's original comic book. Now, that Luke Evans has walked, the director will be able to focus on his own vision without worrying about what the actor and the former director had planned.
Tom Hiddleston was originally supposed to join The Crow, but passed despite an impressive make-up test. Before that, it was believed that Bradley Cooper would play Eric Draven. This was before both actors found great success with other movie projects.
The Crow is in development and stars Luke Evans. The film is directed by Corin Hardy.
As Max Braverman pointed out this past Thursday, statistics don't lie. It's too bad we don't yet have a solid statistic that tells us how often an actor lobbying for a role works out in their favor. We know that Vin Diesel was welcomed into the Marvel Cinematic Universe because of how vocal he was with fans about the possibility on his personal Facebook page. But have we seen anyone else win a role by begging for the part on social media? Earlier today, we saw that Tyrese Gibson wants to play Green Lantern in the Justice League, as he pointed out on his own Instagram. Now one of the stars of The CW's The Flash is hoping to land a role in the upcoming Power Rangers reboot by utilizing the same tactics.
Like many of us, Robbie Amell, who plays Firestorm on The Flash, grew up with Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. And with the reboot heading into production soon, he's decided that he wants to take on the role of the Red Power Ranger. Yes, he was that specific.
Robbie Amell sent out the following Tweet, proclaiming his love for the franchise. Power Rangers is set for release in July 2016, and will start shooting this year. It shouldn't be too long before we hear an actual casting announcement. As you can see in an image from Comic Book Movie, the actor looks quite a bit like the original Red Ranger, played by Austin St. John. Though, it should be noted that, at 26 years old, Robbie Amell may be too old to play a teenager, as the new reboot will focus on a group of high schoolers. What do you think? Should they hire him anyway?January 23, 2015
Director David Ayer apparently isn't too affected by the lack of having a Rick Flagg locked in for his big screen comic book adaptation Suicide Squad. While he hasn't provided an update on the actor search, he has decided to give us all a slight little tease, showing off his workspace, where he is in the middle of drafting the script and creating storyboards. It's impossible to read any of the words, or even make out the lone figure who we see depicted here, but it's cool to see this side of the production nonetheless.
David Ayer is writing the script himself, based on the popular DC Comic about a group of super villains who go on a secret mission to clear their name. It was his latest drafted that reportedly caused Tom Hardy to step away from the project. If we're to believe the rumors swirling around the production, Hardy felt his character, Rick Flagg, was being pushed to the side to give Deadshot (Will Smith) and The Joker (Jared Leto) more screen time. Shortly after he left, it was announced that DC and Warner Bros. were pursuing Jake Gyllenhaal for the role. He turned them down. The last two names mentioned are Joel Edgerton and Jon Bernthal, two great actors who don't have the same marquee value as Tom Hardy and might be more open to a secondary role.
The latest rumor making the rounds for Suicide Squad claims that Joe Manganiello is being eyed as Deathstroke, and that Gary Sinise has joined the project as General Eiling. None of this has been confirmed by the studio. While we await more casting announcements and an official start of production announcement, take a look at director David Ayer's office as he prepares to give us the second great DC Comics movie of 2016 (though, if he wants to keep that August release date, he better hurry up and find his Rick Flagg).January 23, 2015
Earlier in the week, it was announced that Joe and Mud star Tye Sheridan had won the role of Young Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse. The news hasn't exactly swayed fans either way, as the actor is relatively unknown. But he does have one supporter in his corner, and it maybe the only voice that counts at the moment. James Marsden, who originated the role of Cyclops in 2000's X-Men, and played him in three more films, is quite happy with the choice 20th Century Fox has made.
"I think he's a wonderfully talented actor who blew me away in Mud. I've never seen a kid that young be that present and that powerful. So, I think he's a perfect fit and I congratulate him."
This isn't the first time that another actor has taken over the role. Tim Pocock also played a younger version of Scott Summers in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. About taking on the new job, Tye Sheridan dropped some quick comments on The Hollywood Reporter, saying that he 'loved the last movie' and that shooting on the sequel starts 'this summer'. THR hasn't posted their full interview with the actor just yet, but they did supply a tweet. We also have some new fan art that depicts Tye Sheridan as he'll look in his Cyclops costume. Will he flaunt the original 80s visor as seen here? We can only hope so!January 24, 2015January 24, 2015
A spin-off from Aardman’s highly successful TV series, this feature stars the plucky young ram of the title and his flock in an urban adventure
The Crow is on the verge of becoming one of those reboot/sequels we hear a lot about, but never actually see happen. After numerous actors and directors have come and gone, Relativity seemed like they were finally ready to move forward, hiring music video director Corin Hardy to take the helm, and targeting Luke Evans as the lead. The movie was supposed to start shooting this spring. That doesn't look like it will actually happen now, and reiterating previously made statements, Luke Evans still doesn't even know if he'll be able to make the movie or not due to his schedule.
Talking with HitFix, Luke Evans simply can't give a straight answer on whether or not he will star as Eric Draven. His schedule is completely full for the next twelve months, so if he does take the lead, it won't start shooting until at least the second quarter of 2016. Apparently, the actor doesn't even know what Relativity has planned at this point in time, other than that there is a new director attached.
"Right now I'm not sure where it is, I don't know what's happening with it.  I think it's a question probably to ask [distributor] Relativity...they're the ones who are really holding the strings to this story and this character. But yeah, I don't think it's gonna be something I'm gonna be doing for a while. I've got about four or five different projects which I'm lining up for this year, which will take up the majority of my 12 months. So not in the near future, unfortunately."
Last year, Luke Evans was quoted as saying that previous director F. Javier Gutiérrez was making a movie that more closely followed the comic books, making it a departure from the original 1994 The Crow. He's not so sure that's the case anymore.
"It'll be a different concept, a different director, a different script, and who knows where it will go? I mean, when I was in conversations with everybody it was about being as honorable to the book and loyal to the book as possible. And that meant it would be a very different film to the one that was made with Brandon Lee. Which was a good thing in a way. I mean, it wasn't that we were trying to replicate something. It was, we were gonna go back to the book and be as completely truthful as possible. But who knows where it'll go? And who knows whether I'll be playing it or somebody else."
Just yesterday, director Corin Hardy was at Sundance, where he revealed the movie will stay pretty close to James O'Barr's original vision.
"I'm very much going back to the graphic novel, particularly looking into the illustrations themselves as much as the story, and picking out all those beautiful ideas and details that haven't really been used yet."
From the sounds of it, The Crow certainly won't be ready for an April 2015 start date. That may be okay, as there are plenty of super hero and comic book movies on the very near horizon. What do you think? Do you want to see Luke Evans as Eric Draven? Or should he leave this job in the dust for yet another actor to pick up?

Way back in October of last year, when DC Comics and Warner Bros. unveiled it's full slate of upcoming movies, they also announced most of the Justice League cast. The one main character that didn't come attached to an actor was Green Lantern. Though, before and since that time a number of names have been rumored to portray John Stewart. One of those often mentioned names is Tyrese Gibson. He has decided to fuel the flames, almost lobbying for the part, by posting new fan art that depicts himself as the character.
Raphael Leite created the image in question for D&R Arts, which was posted on Facebook. The image was later shared by Tyrese himself on his Instagram Account with the words: 'Rumor Has It.'This is similar to the approach that Jason Momoa took when he was rumored to be playing Aquaman. He constantly teased fans on social media with images hinting that he had taken on the character, but then vehemently denied it whenever he was asked directly in a public forum. He was later made part of the October announcement.
Its possible that we didn't hear any Green Lantern casting news at that time, because the Green Lantern (Reboot) is the final movie to be released as part of this first wave of DC Comics films, with his solo adventure coming in 2020. It's also been rumored that Green Lantern doesn't show up until the end of Justice League Part 1, when he arrives to warn the rest of the team that Darkseid is coming. He will then be a main character in Justice League Part 2.
It has long been rumored that this version of Green Lantern will focus on John Stewart, as DC tries to distance itself from Ryan Reynolds' Hal Jordan in the 2011 Green Lantern, considered a failure by most fans and critics alike. With no immediate need to have a new Green Lantern cast, that may be why we haven't heard anything. Justice League Part 1 isn't in theaters until 2017, so Warner Bros. still has a little bit of time to make up it's mind, if it hasn't already. What do you think? Take a look at the below art, and let us know, is this the Green Lantern you want to see rebooted on the big screen?
Rumor has it that.
