So many names have been tossed around over the years for The Crow reboot, but news started to pick up over the last few weeks.

According to Deadline, Luke Evans is currently in negotiations to start in Relativity’s remake of The Crow.

Evans was previously seen in The Raven and Immortals, and recently signed on for Universal’s new Dracula movie.
