Mark Wahlberg Offered 'The Crow'
In retrospect, I shouldn't have attempted this.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Mark Wahlberg has been offered the opportunity to get really super emo in The Crow. The original big screen adaptation was directed by Alex Proyas and followed Eric Draven, who is murdered and comes back to kill the men responsible for putting down him and his fiancée. Brandon Lee was accidently killed by a loaded gun during filming. I say nothing is an accident when Michael Wincott is on set.
Hasn't Wahlberg kind of already done this role in Max Payne? He didn't wear makeup and sling an ax (that's a guitar, for all you squares), but he got revenge for his family's murder with moody music and lighting. My guess is nothing will come of this rumor. Wahlberg should know better than to take the reigns from Crow: Salvation's Eric Mabius of ABC's "Ugly Betty."
