Attending the Abu Dhabi Film Festival this week, producer Edward R. Pressman revealed that production begins on The Crow remake this spring, while revealing that no cast members have been confirmed at this time.

We reported in May 2013 that Luke Evans (Dracula Untold, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) had signed on to play Eric Draven, and the actor has spoke about the role in interviews over the past year. The Hollywood Reporter states that the actor is the "current favorite" for the role, which contradicts the May 2013 report that he has already signed on. We also reported last November that The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus was in talks to play a character named James.

Edward R. Pressman revealed at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival that The Crow remake is the "anti-Spider-Man," while speaking about the franchise's fan base.

"It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago. But the generation today doesn't even know The Crow."

Based on the James O'Barr comic book of the same name, The Crow centers on rock star Eric Draven, who is murdered alongside his fiancee, when he is brought back to life to avenge his own death.
