Every now and again a genre flick comes along and trundles through the typical gossip and whisper machine. There's nothing more frustrating than a project that hits you with news that then turns out to be less solidified than you first thought. One such piece of news that hit lately was that 'X-Men: First Class' star James McAvoy was being tapped to take the lead role in the planned remake of comic to feature adaptation 'The Crow'. McAvoy, during his press stint for Danny Boyle's new thriller 'Trance', mentioned to Getty Images that there's no actual confirmation of any of this just yet. 'It's not for real," says McAvoy "I don't think it's materialised into anything truthful yet...it's just been rumour mill stuff." So make of that what you will. McAvoy will next be set to reprise his role as Professor Xavier in Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.
"A poetic guitarist Eric Draven is brought back to life by a crow a year after he and his fiancée are murdered. The crow guides him through the land of the living, and leads him to his killers: knife thrower Tin-tin, drugetic Funboy, car buff T-Bird, and the unsophisticated Skank. One by one, Eric gives these thugs a taste of their own medicine. However their leader Top-Dollar, a world-class crime lord who will dispatch his enemies with a Japanese sword and joke about it later, will soon learn the legend of the crow and the secret to the vigilante's invincibility."
