NYCC: Campbell, Raimi & "Ash vs Evil Dead" Cast Slash Into New York
He already battles legions of the walking dead every Sunday night. Why not add one more undead individual to the party?
Norman Reedus, breakout star of The Walking Dead, is reportedly up for a role in the new adaptation of James O’Barr’s The Crow, produced by Relativity Media and directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez. Schmoes Know reports that Reedus is the top choice to play “James,” although there are no details about the character beyond the name. Some are hoping to see the erstwhile Daryl Dixon in the role of vengeful rocker Eric Draven, but as of now, that part belongs to The Hobbit actor Luke Evans.
In addition to Reedus’ possible casting, Schmoes Know states that producers had been eyeing Twilight lead Kristen Stewart for the role of Shelley, Draven’s ill-fated lover. She is no longer in the running due to “audience concern,” according to the report.
