He was once rumored to be up for the role of Doctor Strange, but now Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston has found his comic book movie. Dread Central is reporting that Huston will play Eric Draven in the upcoming remake of The Crow.
Their source for the information? The Crow creator himself James O'Barr told them at the Lexington Comic And Toy Convention this weekend. O'Barr said "Jack Huston has definitely been cast", a choice that he is very happy with. The creator also said that the Corin Hardy directed and Cliff Dorfman scripted film will be more of a direct adaptation of the graphic novel and will begin production in a few months.
The original The Crow film starring Brandon Lee came out in 1994.
