James O'Barr was a guest at the Lexington Comic and Toy Convention this weekend where he spilled the news that Jack Huston was going to be playing Eric Draven in the upcoming The Crow remake. There was also a spotlight panel for him which had no moderator leaving O'Barr to pretty much fill the 47 minutes just talking to the audience.
In the first few minutes alone he talks about why he left Detroit, how Dallas is just like King Of The Hill and that the remake of The Crow is going to be a shot for shot adaptation from the graphic novel. He also let it be known that Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay would also be part of the film as Shelly Webster.
Instead of telling you too much more, here is the panel posted by the convention for you to enjoy.
