Luke Evans has some big shoes to fill. Brandon Lee's version of The Crow from 1994, has a huge cult following. The fans can be a bit aggressive when it comes to touching the source material. However, Luke Evans sought to quell the fan uproar with some interesting notes about the new reboot:
"We just want to be as authentic and loyal to the original comic as possible, and that means the story will be different. It's not about ripping off the Brandon Lee movie. That stands alone as a brilliant piece of cult film and a great performance. But we're going back to the book, the original book. And that's exciting because we're bringing to the screen a lot of parts of the story that were never really told."
Well isn't that what they did with Total Recall 2012? Not that the two situations are similar. It's just sometimes updates aren't always good, or well received by fans. However, Luke Evans is a great casting choice, so it already has promise. Hopefully, they have an awesome writer and director on board, and they can really do this reboot some justice.
