Luke Evans Unafraid Of  Any Superstitions Surrounding THE CROW

Actor Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug) is not afraid of any curse surrounding The Crow, says the reboot will be true to the original comic book from Cailber.

There are some who think The Crow is a cursed production given the subject matter and the deaths of actor Brandon Lee and The Crow: Stairway to Heaven stuntman, Marc Akerstream. But Luke Evans is unfazed by any such rumors. Evans told The Metro, "I’m not one of those superstitious people. It is incredibly sad that Brendon died making the movie. He was a very talented actor. It is a very beautiful story, The Crow. It is a very tragic story with huge emotional themes. We plan to tell the story differently and with a lot of integrity to the original comic book."

Evans recent comments concerning the comic book source material are completely different from the statement he made back in May when he said his version would essentially be a remake of the original 1994 Brandon Lee film. Perhaps there's been a change in the script since then?

That original comic book was first published in 1989 by Caliber Comics. James. O'Barr stated that he wrote the comic as a way of dealing with the death of his girlfriend at the hands of a drunk driver. Filming on the reboot is expected to begin in 2014.

After a number of directors, writer and actors attached themselves and then dropped out, The Crow reboot looks set to begin filming at some point in 2014. Luke Evans will star as the titular protagonist. It's rumored that Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and Kristen Stewart (On The Road) are also up for parts. Francisco Javier Gutiérrez will direct the feature.
