Luke Evans (Dracula Untold) seems to be the favorite for the starring role originally played by Brandon Lee in the original 1994 film. However Producer Ed Pressman says no casting choices have been confirmed yet for The Crow remake.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Crow remake producer Ed Pressman (Wallstreet, American Psycho)  has stated that all of the legal issues surrounding the remake appear to be settled and that the production is aiming to begin filming next Spring.  Pressman was further quoted as stating that "The Crow" is the "anti-Spider-Man" and that, "It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago.  But the generation today doesn’t even know 'The Crow'."
