The Crow has been struggling to get made for quite a while now, and recently they lost their star Luke Evans. It appears though that the creator of The Crow, James O’Barr, is eyes Sam Witwer to be the titular character.
The creator talked at a panel about it, and mentioned that Witwer had the ability to slip into any role. Witwer has done numerous acting pieces, both on screen and in voice work, so the potential is there.
O’Barr noted that the true (and somewhat obvious) reason that The Crow hasn’t been made is money. They want to make the movie their way, pure, dark, gritty, and not super-expensive. Though Witwer is not confirmed yet, it does seem to be heading in that direction. Hopefully with his hiring they’ll begin the movie.
