Tom Hiddleston in Early Talks for ‘The Crow’ Remake Posted on Friday, April 19th, 2013 by Angie Han (FILM)
Relativity’s remake of The Crow has gone through several potential leading men over the past couple of years. Bradley Cooper was attached for a while; when he left, Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum were eyed as replacements. As recently as February, James McAvoy was circling the project. Now, it’s Tom Hiddleston‘s turn to flirt with the role.
The Avengers actor is reportedly in early talks to play Eric Draven, the protagonist played by Brandon Lee in the 1994 movie. F. Javier Gutierrez is directing the new film.
Hiddleston isn’t closing in on a deal quite yet, but he has already met with producers and submitted a makeup test. In the following days, he’ll undergo another makeup test to make sure he can get Draven’s look just right. According to sources who spoke with The Wrap, the producers, who include Ed Pressman, Kevin Misher, and Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh and Jeff Most, are intrigued by both Hiddleston’s versatility and his physical talents.
