Tom Hiddleston in Talks to Star in THE CROW Remake

It's been reported that Loki himself from "Thor", played by the wonderful Tom Hiddleston, is in talks to star as Eric Draven in "The Crow" remake. James McAvoy was in talks to star as the title character prior, but those talks have now come to an end apparently.

It's hard to imagine anyone else playing the famed character, as Brandon Lee was incredible at it. I will say however, that Hiddleston's proven darkness does seem like a better fit that McAvoy for the role. I'm sure either actor could pull it off successfully but based on what I've seen from past performances alone, Hiddleston feels like a better choice.

The script for the remake is being penned by "Warrior" scribe Cliff Dorfman, and is said to follow the same graphic novel about the rocker Eric Draven and his fiancé who are murdered on Devil's Night. Draven is then brought back from the dead as a supernatural entity, claiming vengeance on those who wronged him.

No director is currently attached to the film but I imagine that will soon change if Hiddleston is locked in.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
