It's not Tom Hiddleston, James McAvoy or Mark Wahlberg. The new Crow? That'd be Luke Evans...

There have been a number of interesting names linked to the remake of The Crow in recent times, with actors linked such as Mark Wahlberg, James McAvoy and most recently Tom Hiddleston, who reportedly was so keen on the role that he took it upon himself to send in a make up test also. It would now appear that Hiddleston's reported efforts didn't pay off however, as it's being widely reported that Luke Evans is expected to sign as the leading man and take on the role of Eric Draven/The Crow.

Evans will next be seen as the villain in Fast & Furious 6 and was recently hired by Universal to play Dracula in its origins story, previously titled Dracula Year Zero. It is said that Evans was the original choice for the role all along and the reason others were linked is that he was too busy. It would seem as though he's managed to find time in his busy schedule for the role.

The remake is being directed by F. Javier Gutierrez (Before The Fall) from a script by Cliff Dorfman (Warrior) and is expected to go into production at the start of next year.
