The Crow remake has been in production for what feels like forever and last year it looked like it was finally happening with Luke Evans and F Javier Guitierrez.

Now, The Wrap is confirming reports that Evans has followed Gutiérrez out of the project. The director had been replaced by Corin Hardy, but the star of The Hobbit and Dracula Untold has been voicing concerns for a while that if the film didn’t get going soon, he’d have to drop out.

Well, that time has come. Now, Hardy needs to find a new Eric Draven. Let the wild speculation begin again! Remember those rumours about Tom Hiddleston and Alexander Skarsgård? Well, we can expect more of that.

You can buy The Crow: Special Edition in paperback for £13.59 at Amazon.co.uk. Read more about the comics that inspired the movie with the 100 All-Time Greatest Comics Bookazine.
