[Movies] Luke Evans Doesn't Think There Is A Curse Attached To The Crow Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.11.2013
He's not worried...
In an interview with Metro, Luke Evans said he doesn't believe in any curse attached to The Crow, because he's "not one of those superstitious people". The star of the 1994 original, Brandon Lee, died after being accidentally shot on set. Evans will play the same role as Lee: Eric Draven.
He said: "It is incredibly sad that Brendon died making the movie. He was a very talented actor. It is a very beautiful story, The Crow. It is a very tragic story with huge emotional themes. We plan to tell the story differently and with a lot of integrity to the original comic book."
Draven becomes The Crow after he is killed. The film will be directed by F. Javier Gutierrez from a script by Cliff Dorfman. Series creator James O'Barr will be the creative consultant. Production begins in 2014 for a currently unset release date. Evans, meanwhile, can next be seen in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug which opens tomorrow night.
