So originally this role was rumored to be Mark Wahlberg’s. Then a few months later Bradley Cooper stepped in. Now he has taken on far too many other roles and overbooked, the first thing to go is ‘The Crow’. Which isn’t surprising considering Cooper’s rising star power and ‘The Crow’ franchise being more of a launching off point (although all the past films, aside from the first, came under heavy critical fire).
So now they go back to Wahlberg, who has pretty much as full a slate as Cooper and will probably not be available (which is fine because he’d probably mope, whine and wuss-out through the whole movie like he’s been doing).
So that leaves us with Channing Tatum, who I honestly think might surprise in this role. I know a lot of people think he comes off as stupid and unable to act, but if they’re writing this movie correctly it shouldn’t be very dialogue heavy and out of these three actors rumored for the role he can probably come off the most menacing (let’s face it these guy’s forte are fun, tough and shirtless roles). Obviously body type is the biggest factor in who’s getting an invitation to star in The Crow (so let me be the first to push John Cena’s name into the mix).
Who would you like to see starring in The Crow?
