[Movies] Alexander Skarsgard Now Rumored to Star in The Crow Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.29.2013
The focus switches from Loki to a True Blood star...
So much for everyone's favorite God of Mischief playing Eric Draven. As you likely read last week, Tom Hiddleston, best known as Loki in Marvel's films, was rumored to be up for the lead role in Relativity's reimagining of The Crow. However, such was not really the case; the ever-reliable Deadline reports that Hiddleston had merely talked with filmmakers about the possiblity and wasn't ever in the running.
The site instead reports that Relativity and director F. Javier Gutierrez have their sites set on True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard, noting that Skarsgard has been getting several offers since Warner Bros. halted production on Tarzan due to budget issues. The site claims that there is no formal offer yet bu that it appears to be "Skarsgard's role if he wants it."
