Crow reboot pulls in Jack Huston for lead


The Crow reboot has been kicking around for years now. It’s to the point that our general “whatever” attitude towards it has turned into really just not caring at all. However, it is still happening and that means an actor will need to take on the lead role. That actor is Jack Huston and he will most likely wear white face makeup in the role. 

Huston will take on the role after Luke Evans dropped out. His casting is a far cry from the big names that once were going to headline, including Mark Wahlberg and Bradley Cooper. Still, he is an up and comer in the industry so this could be his breakout. 

Also possibly reporting in to be murdered in an alley before returning from the dead is Jessica Brown Findlay who will play The Crows love. The two are killed and it causes Huston’s character to come back all goth and just start exacting revenge on everyone. Evidently this take is slated to be far more faithful to the original graphic novel so maybe it won’t feel as 1990s as the first one. I’m not sure that’s a good thing.
