Is it for real this time?
Jack Huston, best known for playing the role of assassin Richard Harrow on HBO's “Boardwalk Empire,” has closed a deal to star as Eric Draven in Relatively long-gestating remake of “The Crow,” according to Deadline. Luke Evans, who was previously attached to the role, dropped out in January. Corin Hardy (“The Hallow”) is set to direct.
Huston will shoot the film after he completes work on Timur Bekmambetov's “Ben-Hur” remake, in which he's playing the title character.
Draven was played in Alex Proyas's 1994 adaptation by Brandon Lee, who died on set after a live round was accidentally fired from a gun that was supposed to be loaded with blanks.
