Seems like the remake of The Crow just can’t catch a break. As soon as it starts picking up speed and getting ready, they lose a major cast member. Variety told all this morning that the on and off again troubled production of the film based on James O’Barr’s graphic novel has lost the actor playing the titular Crow, yet again.
Jack Huston, who was attached to the lead role will now be leaving the project due to scheduling conflicts. Director Corin Hardy remarked, “Jack Huston is unfortunately unavailable to continue with us on ‘The Crow’, ‘The Crow’ is an amazing project, and I am grateful that we have the time and patience to get it right. We look forward to unveiling our new lead and starting to film over the next several weeks.” If you recall, Bradley Cooper was once attached and nothing came of that as the film seemed to be stuck in development hell, then Luke Evans left the project earlier this year as well.
Even with all the production issues over the years, the film is determined to push on, as Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker is in talks to play a role.
