Since our lovely readers surely haven’t had enough of reboot and remake rumors, here’s the latest from that Crow reboot Hollywood’s been talking about. Even though many of us may be utterly appalled by the project, the cash at the end of the tunnel is too bright and it will be going forward with or without us. They’re currently searching for their leading man and though Tom Hiddleston was previously rumored, it now looks like someone else may be the top man in the running – True Blood actor Alexander Skarsgard.
According to fellow media-spam site, Deadline:
The guy to keep an eye on here is True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard, who is getting numerous offers since his plans to star for David Yates in Tarzan died on the vine when Warner Bros halted the project over budget. No formal offer yet, but it sounds to me like it’s Skarsgard’s role if he wants it, in the F. Javier Gutierrez-directed film series relaunch.
Yup, it’s really little more than more speculation, but what did you expect?
No matter who they choose, they’re going to have to do some serious super-stunt to get this one to sell to Crow fans. Personally, the only way I’d even consider buying a ticket was if they decided to follow the original James O’Barr storyline, so that we could see something different. Oh, and leave the True Blood “actors” out of it, please.
Any opinions from the peanut gallery?
Thanks to ComicBookMovie for the heads-up.
