'The Crow' Curse Doesn't Scare Reboot Star Luke Evans

The actor isn't the supersitious type. He goes onto describe how this new version will deviate from the original and its sequels.
After the tragic, accidental death of Brandon Lee while shooting the original cult classic The Crow, many fans thought the production itself was cursed. With The Crow remake gearing up to start production, star Luke Evans revealed he doesn't believe in any sort of curses or superstitions.

"I'm not one of those superstitious people. It is incredibly sad that Brandon 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."


While no other cast members have been attached to star, we reported last month that The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus is the top choice for a character named James.

F. Javier Gutiérrez is directing the reboot, from a screenplay by Cliff Dorfman. Production is scheduled to begin sometime next year, although an exact start date has not been revealed.

The Crow is in development and stars Luke Evans. The film is directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez.

    Don't know who this Director is and never heard of him, or seen his line of work but as per this will give him a name sooner or later if he does this well (ahem-cough- money wise) then he will be the tooted name around Hollywood studios!

    Terrible choice, Evans is just a look and a name now! Dark Haired, brooding, does not make a good actor, it makes a sexual following for young women to swoon over. He is talent less, boring as an actor, brings nothing new or fresh to the platau and will not to this story. Oh in the shadows, hair cropped chopped, looking out through his parting in the fringe, oh very talented. Terrible casting choice for such a big reboot. Faith has gone down the pan.
