The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus might be up for a lead role in The Crow reboot

Daryl Dixon fans are going to love this news: Schmoes Knows has learned Norman Reedus is a top contender for the role of "James" in Javier Gutierrez's THE CROW. No word on who the character is, but their sources say it is one of the leads. Some sites are claiming Reedus' character will actually become The Crow, however last we knew Luke Evans was still set to play Eric Draven in the reboot. Maybe Luke Evans has dropped out and the character's name has been changed to James, but that announcement hasn't been made, and I'm sticking with Evans as The Crow for now. So who could James be? If the character is one of the leads, maybe he will be the main villain in the film?

The source also has some interesting news on the role of Shelly, Eric Draven's girlfriend. Apparently the producers and studio were looking at Kristen Stewart for the part, but “shied away from the idea after hearing that she wouldn’t attract an audience." I actually wouldn't mind Stewart for Shelly, even though I'm not the biggest fan of the actress. Kristen Stewart isn't a huge draw for some people, but I don't think she would hurt the film's box office potential either. And although the character is important to the story, she probably won't have a lot of screen time in the reboot, if it ends up being anything like the original film.

I'm not against a remake of THE CROW, however I'm also not completely sold on it either. Having the writer of the comics attached to the project makes me feel a little better, but I'm still worried we'll get another terrible movie with the character, and no one wants that.

Reedus as Draven would be the perfect casting. Thank God Kristen Stewart wouldn't play Shelly, her face would look the same in every scene: confused as fuck.

If there has to be a reboot . . .

. . . I would love to see Reedus in it. I agree with cerealkiller182 . . . I'd much rather him be Eric Draven.

I can see Reedus as T-bird...

But I think Tom Hiddleston would have made a bad ass Eric Draven!

This would be awesome casting if it were to happen. I'm not sold on the Crow reboot either, but I am a big fan of Evans and Reedus.

Dixon!

Reedus is a great actor. He was very underrated for a long time. Good to see with the Walking Dead hes getting the attention he deserves. Sidenote, I met the guy and he is one humble dude.
