Fans of The Crow are by now well used to setbacks in the quest to bring a reboot to the big screen. While the production as lost F. Javier Gutierrez as director and replaced him with Corin Hardy, it has also lost its lead actor Luke Evans. The production team, including creator James O’Barr, is still optimistic about seeing the film finally come to fruition and are currently eying fan favorite Sam Witwer to replace Evans in the role of Eric Draven for the Crow reboot.

Cult television fans will likely remember Witwer best for his brief role as Crashdown in Ron L. Moore’s Battlestar Galactica. Gamers and Star Wars fans will probably also be familiar with his extensive voice work within the Star Wars video game and television universe – particularly his role as Starkiller in the game The Force Unleashed.

While nothing official has been confirmed concerning the Crow reboot, Witwer responded favorably to the idea, saying that he would “he’d mow the creator’s lawn for the rest of their lives for the chance.”

My cinema education started when, at three years old, Charlie Chaplin's "The Gold Rush" became my earliest memory of cinema. Since then, I've been obsessed with film and television, learning more about it, analyzing it, researching it, and experiencing different kinds of it. After getting my BA in Theater, I went on to get my MFA in Film Studies. I now spend my free time watching and writing about movies.
