THE CROW: Jack Huston Bows Out Due To Scheduling Conflicts
Breaking news out of the camp for the remake of The Crow is that Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston has had to leave the production because his calendar is getting full of more important things. Pre-production is currently underway in Wales.

"Jack Huston is unfortunately unavailable to continue with us on The Crow," said director Corin Hardy in a statement. "'The Crow' is an amazing project, and I am grateful that we have the time and patience to get it right. We look forward to unveiling our new lead and starting to film over the next several weeks." Variety

The article at Variety hints at who may replace Huston. It suggests that the studio is looking at Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodies) or Jack O'Connell ('71 and Unbroken), among others, to fill the boots.I am giving the edge to Nicolas Hoult. I think what with his experience in fantastic film, culminating with Mad Max Fury Road this Summer, the studio would be daft not to give him all the money in the World just to have his name on the playbill at the end of the day. 

Who do you think would make an excellent Eric Draven?

Brandon Lee dead would make an excellent Eric Draven.

Remake Enter the Dragon instead.

This is one movie that should never have become a franchise, and even less a reboot. It´s not that you couldn´t do something cool with various people coming back - possibly with variant mythologies as reflections of the same thing - but despite getting a lot of the newer comics and such (because I am an optimist and a huge nerd) no one seems to ever do anything creative with it, instead defaulting to the same lazy formula every damn time... including the movies adopting the facepaint as a sort of lazy "Crow uniform" despite it being a very personal thing for Eric Draven that doesn´t really make sense for someone else.

(I guess that they had a pretty cool excuse for why Vincent in "City of Angels" had it, it being Sarah who painted his face that way. Unfortunately, it was about the one single good thing about that movie.)
