Jack Huston to Star in ‘The Crow’ Remake

Jack Huston will star in Relativity’s remake of “The Crow,” playing the role originated by the late Brandon Lee in the 1994 film.

Huston will portray Eric Draven in the dark thriller, based on the James O’Barr graphic novel. Directed by Corin Hardy, “The Crow” will start filming later this year.

Huston, who memorably played the facially disfigured Richard Harrow on “Boardwalk Empire,” will shoot another bigscreen remake this year, essaying the title role of Judah Ben-Hur in “Ben-Hur,” from Paramount and MGM. He’s also starring in the “The Longest Ride” and “Pride, Prejudice and Zombies.”

Producers on “The Crow” are Edward Pressman, Kevin Misher, Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh, Jeff Most and Jeff Waxman. Gutierrez, Tucker Tooley, Bob and Harvey Weinstein and Dan Farah are exec producers.

Hardy came on to “The Crow” in December after F. Javier Gutierrez became unavailable when he took on directing “The Ring 3″ for Paramount. Hardy’s credits include “The Hallow” and the animated short “Butterfly.”

The original 1994 movie was based on O’Barr’s story of a musician revived from the dead to avenge the murders of himself and his fiancee. Lee was accidentally killed during filming. The movie grossed more than $140 million worldwide.

Huston is repped by UTA, the Artists Partnership and Untitled Entertainment.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
