Luke Evans Has Been Cast As The New Crow, Production Pushed Back To Accomodate Him

Bradley Cooper, Tom Hiddleston and Alexander Skarsgåd were all in contention for the role of resurrected rock-n-roll avenger The Crow at some point or other, but none of them, ultimately, have won the role.

Instead, director F. Javier Gutierrez and the producers at Relativity Media have plumped for Luke Evans. In order to accomodate his schedule, which includes additional shooting on The Hobbit and a starring role as the new Dracula, production of The Crow won’t now start until early next year.

According to Deadline, Evans was the first choice. It’s an amazing credit to the actor that the filmmakers decided to delay the shoot by many months to ensure that Evans can take part.

Evans has a real history in stage musicals, including Rent and Miss Saigon. Don’t be surprised if his version of The Crow actually rocks out for real.
