James McAvoy Reportedly Circling Lead Role In THE CROW Remake
X-Men: First Class' James McAvoy, who will soon reprise his Charles Xavier role in Days Of Future Past, is apparently the latest name attached to the role of Eric Draven in Relativity's remake of The Crow.
Here's an interesting potential casting report. It has been a while since we heard anything about Relativity's new adaptation of James O'Barr's The Crow, which has F. Javier Gutierrez attached to direct and Cliff Dorfman writing the script. We have heard several names attached to the lead role of Eric Draven, with Bradley Cooper once attached to star and both Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum considered potential candidates. Now, according to Bloody-Disgusting (who previously broke the news that Wahlberg was in "serious discussions"), a new actor is linked to the remake. James McAvoy, best known for his roles as Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class and Wesley Gibson in Wanted, is said to be circling the role of Draven, who is "brutally murdered [and] comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée’s murder." However, it's possible that McAvoy's commitment to X-Men: Days Of Future Past (which starts shooting this April) will keep him from taking on The Crow. Brandon Lee most famously played the character in Alex Proyas' 1994 classic. Stay tuned to CBM for more news on the film as we have it.
