Could James McAvoy be circling The Crow remake?

When the news hit that a remake/reboot of THE CROW would be heading our way many fans of the original film cried 'Fowl'. Ok, that was a bad pun, I admit, but it is true that those who enjoyed the kickass film that launched a subpar franchise had a hard time wrapping their heads around some other actor stepping into Brandon Lee's iconic role of Eric Draven (and our own Arrow wasn't excited by the prospect, either). Rumors were abound that both Bradley Cooper and Marky Mark Wahlberg were at one time attached or in serious discussions to join the project, which is to be helmed by F. Javier Gutierrez from a screenplay by Jesse Wigutow. Today the chaps over at Bloody Disgusting have it on good word that another actor is circling the remake, and I gotta say that if it holds true, it's not a bad choice.

James McAvoy, who is probably most familiar as the young Charles Xavier from X-MEN: FIRST CLASS or for his role as Wesley in the hyper-kinetic action flick WANTED, is the latest name rumored to be possibly tackling the Eric Draven role in Relativity's long-gestured remake. While this is only conjecture at the moment I like the idea of McAvoy joining the project as he has proven to be a solid actor who will be able to deliver a different take on the character. We'll see if this bird will fly...

We'll keep you up to date on news as it rolls in.
