James O’Barr, creator of The Crow stated that yes it is true, Jack Huston, that guy with half a face on Boardwalk Empire will in fact, be playing the iconic Crow. Below is a quote from Jason Jenkins from DreadCentral who broke the news:
O’Barr said that “Jack Huston has definitely been cast,” that he was “really happy with that choice,” and that the film “will shoot in a couple of months.” He also said the film will essentially be a straight adaptation of his original graphic novel, which differs quite a bit from the (still awesome) 1994 Brandon Lee vehicle.
Not like the ’94 movie eh? I don’t know. If I don’t see at least 3 bullets swallowed I’m gonna have to call this one a wash. I’m not too familiar with the original story, however the original film did have a great visual look that Hot Topic tried their damnedest to destroy. I wonder how many members of the NWO they are going to cast?
