Mark Wahlberg has officially been offered the lead role in a remake of Alex Proyas's seminal 1994 comic book adaptation The Crow. This news comes from Bloody Disgusting, who suspect that Wahlberg will most likely decline the offer.

Relativity Media is behind this remake, which is said to take place in Detroit. The original starred Brandon Lee, who was accidentally killed during filming after being shot in the chest with a firing blank. The story revolves around a rock musician named Eric Draven who is brought back from the dead to avenge his own murder. The franchise has spawned three sequels and a TV series.
