While promoting The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, star Luke Evans discussed his role as the titular character in The Crow reboot.

Brandon Lee as The Crow movie photoTalking with Total Film Evans praised the script and the team adapting the popular comic book into another big screen film.

“The script is brilliant. Jeff Dorfman has been writing it and we’re still tweaking it now.”

Evans confirms the rumors: the new film seeks to be faithful to the original comic book by James O’Barr, diving into to a new story, not a remake of the 1994 film starring Brandon Lee.

“What we want to do with it is not just do a remake as the original was brilliant. What we want to do is tell the story and bring parts of the original source material into the film that was not done the first time around…trying to keep it as true to the original story as possible…We have a fantastic team of people on it.”

Fans may want to know, does Evans fear a ‘Crow Curse’?

“I’m not one of those superstitious people,” he told Guilty Pleasures dismissing claims the film is cursed.

“It is incredibly sad that Brandon 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.”

While there’s no release date of additional cast information, news appears to be right around the corner.
