‘The Crow’ Receiving Rebirth With Jack Huston Confirmed As Lead

'The Crow' Receiving Rebirth With Jack Huston Confirmed As Lead

Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston, who also made for a convincing Jack Kerouac in Kill Your Darlings, has been cast as Eric Draven in the upcoming adaptation/remake of The Crow. This is not exactly new news, but the percolating rumor has now been confirmed.

Dread Central has the latest, from a Lexington Comic and Toy Convention interview with Crow creator James O’Barr:

O’Barr said that “Jack Huston has definitely been cast,” that he was “really happy with that choice,” and that the film “will shoot in a couple of months.” He also said the film will essentially be a straight adaptation of his original graphic novel, which differs quite a bit from the (still awesome) 1994 Brandon Lee vehicle.

Corin Hardy directs the remake of the 1994 Alex Proyas-directed adaptation of the James O’Barr graphic novel The Crow which is about a murdered man who comes back for revenge.

The Cliff Dorfman-scripted pic will go into production in the spring.

Speaking of remakes, Huston’s currently shooting the Ben-Hur remake, in which he plays the title role.
