Movie Ruminations

So is The Bard going to be The Crow?

Luke EvansAnother day, another rumor riding the interweb currents concerning the reboot of The Crow.  Deadline is now reporting that Luke Evans (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Fast and Furious 6) will be taking over the face paint.

I really like Luke Evans and he is by far the best choice of all the previous candidates for the role.  He was the only good thing about The Immortals and I really liked him in The Raven and The Three Musketeers.  He also has the everyman handsome thing going on like Brandon Lee did.

Deadline says this:

Evans was the original choice, but he has been incredibly busy. He was just cast as the lead in Dracula Year Zero, he is the villain in Fast & Furious 6 and is Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

They report that production on the film is now set to begin early next year as to accommodate Evans.  I really like this casting choice much better than even Tom Hiddleston.  And I have to thank the gods that the role didn’t go to Alexander Skarsgard.
