Now They’re Talking About James McAvoy Being ‘The Crow’

After trying and failing to give Bradley Cooper, Mark Wahlberg, and Channing Tatum ridiculous haircuts, Relativity Media are now shaking their scissors at James McAvoy. Bloody Disgusting reports they are looking to cast the X-Men: First Class star in their remake of The Crow.

He’d play Eric Draven, a rocker murdered because his shitty songs about the rain suck who returns from the grave to avenge he and his slain fiancee. The original film was released in 1994 at the height of the grunge era and featured Brandon Lee as the gothic, Sandman-like vigilante. There’s no word if the character will be updated to reflect the mood and trends of today’s music, but how great would it be if the Crow we’re now modeled after one of the guys from Fun? He could still dress like he were from the 90′s.
