Soon to be seen in NO ONE LIVES and FAST AND FURIOUS 6, Luke Evans is on the verge of being Hollywood's next big A-lister. In the last month, he's signed on to play not one but two iconic roles: Dracula in Gary Shore's DRACULA, and Eric Draven in F. Javier Gutierrez's THE CROW remake.
Now doing the press rounds for FAST 6, Evans is certainly going to be besieged with questions surrounding his next two projects. In an interview with ComingSoon.net, Evans explained what THE CROW holds in store:
[The Crow] was a very poignant film from my childhood, which I remember vividly... The soundtrack, also. It was such a solid performance that Brandon Lee gave. It was a very tragic end for somebody that probably would have had a very promising career... I'm Eric Draven. I'm the same character. Obviously, he's been refreshed and brought up to date. We're reimagining it to a certain extent, but the story and the plot is mostly the same."
As for Dracula, Evans cleared up some speculation about his version of the character:
[Don't think] of the Dracula that Bram Stoker created. The Dracula that I'm going to be portraying is the origin of Dracula. It's about the man that became Dracula. Don't be too quick to think he's a bad guy. I'm just going to say that."
DRACULA has an August 2014 release date set, while THE CROW is slated to shoot early next year.
