With whispers that Jack Huston would be stepping in to replace Luke Evans for The Crow remake making their way online a couple of weeks ago, fans were pretty excited about the idea and saw Huston as the savior of this failing reboot. Well, good news for them as it seems the Broadwalk Empire actor has been confirmed as the new Eric Draven, a murdered rock-star coming back from the dead to reek havoc and get revenge on his killers!
While speaking to Dread Central, creator of the original graphic novel, James O’Barr confirmed that Huston had bagged the role and that he was really happy with the choice. O’Barr also commented on when shooting will begin, stating that they will start shooting in a couple of months time. Huston is well known for his knock-out performance as Richard Harrow in Broadwalk Empire so I think having him on board for The Crow is a major plus for the film, which I’m still super skeptical about. What are your thoughts on Huston taking the role?
