Luke Evans officially drops out of Corin Hardy's The Crow reboot

The Crow Corin Hardy Luke Evans Banner

In December we heard Luke Evans might be leaving Relativity Media's THE CROW reboot, and just last week Evans said he wasn't sure what was going on with the movie. Well, The Wrap has now learned that the actor has officially dropped out of the planned film.

Luke Evans' publicist told the site since production has been delayed, he has decided to exit THE CROW "to pursue other projects." The good news is director Corin Hardy will be able to handpick (with Relativity Media's approval, of course) who he wants to play Eric Draven/The Crow. Hardy will reportedly start meeting with actors for the role after his movie THE HALLOW premieres at Sundance.

I'm not against THE CROW reboot like some, however at this point I do wonder if it is actually going to happen. The film has burned through several actors and directors, and I don't know how many more will join (and then leave) the project before Relativity Media decides it just isn't worth the trouble.

Good for Luke Evans..
I honestly think the Director didn't want Luke Evans and the Studio wanted him instead thus the Director intentionally delaying the film in order to get Luke Evans to drop out.

Best news in a long time.

The guy just can't act. He was supposed to portray the human side of Dracula and totally failed to evoke any emotion. I could never seen him as The Crow.

I kind of hope this reboot dies though, they haven't made a good crow movie since the original and they kept getting worse.

The reboot would need to be hard R, no CGI blood or effects either. Don't make it look like Sin City, give it its own feeling.

Maybe they don't have the right script yet.

Sucks that Evans dropped out because I thought he would have done a good job. But I would love to see them go after Tom Hiddleston for this.

This does sound like a very troubled production but I think a good reboot of the Crow is not out of the question.

I agree. The fact that James O'Barr was more closely involved with this production made me hopeful that it might actually bring something new to the table.

true but don't forget. Having the original artist and author doesn't necessarily make for a good project. Frank Miller for [link]

Jedd, does some one have a crush on you? They seem to make an awful lot of effort to down vote everything you post.
