Is Norman Reedus The Man To Take On THE CROW?
Luke Evans, take a hike! Looks like Norman Reedus will be swapping hunting the undead to becoming one in The Crow remake. Also besides that, Kristen Stewart was originally up for the role of Shelly but…the studio passed. Thank the heavens. Read on for the goods.The Schmoes’ scooper “The Phantom” has struck again, this time bringing us some very exciting info on the upcoming remake (or re-adaptation if you prefer) of The Crow.
Last we heard Luke Evans had actually signed on, but it seems as though things didn’t work out as according to The Phantom, none other than Daryl [frick]ing Dixon himself, also known as Norman Reedus, is the top choice to play the lead role of “James” in the movie. Now we had been led to believe that this take would once again use the character of Eric Draven from James O’Barr’s original graphic novel, but evidently that won’t be the case. Apparently there’s been no confirmation from Reedus’ people, but given The Phantom’s track record I wouldn’t be against an official announcement soon enough.
There’s more — word is the studio were looking at Miss bitey-lip herself, Kristen Stewart, for the role of James’ unfortunate girlfriend Shelly but “shied away from the idea after hearing that she wouldn’t attract an audience.” Seems a bit harsh! Anyway, what would you guys think if Reedus traded the crossbow for some Gothy facepaint?
