Luke Evans has signed on to star as Eric Draven in Relativity Media's reboot of The Crow. Tom Hiddleston was in talks to star last month, but the studio opted to push their start date to next year to accommodate the actor's schedule.
The story centers on rock star Eric Draven (Luke Evans), who comes back to life to seek vengeance against those who murdered him. Brandon Lee starred in director Alex Proyas' 1994 original film The Crow, based on James O'Barr's comic book series.
