Will Mark Wahlberg Play The Crow?
They're still remaking the Crow?
According to many sources, including EmpireOnline, Mark Wahlberg has been offered the lead role in the film. The new film will take place in Detroit and it is being written by Nick Cave and Stephen Norrington. So far, Wahlberg has not accepted the role.
It seems the film is not going to be a remake, but more of a new story in the Crow universe. A lot of sites seem to be down on Wahlberg in the role, but I'll be the first to admit that I think it would be awesome. Maybe it's because I really enjoy a few of Wahlberg's films. He's an experienced actor, who has proven many times he has what it takes to pull off great dramatic roles: The Departed, Rock Star, Four Brothers, Invincible, etc. In all honesty, I don't see the point of doing another Crow film, when there has been only one good one (the first one obviously). The sequels were nothing compared to the original, but if it has to be done, why not put Mark Wahlberg in the role? What do you guys think? Would Mark Wahlberg do the Crow justice? If not, who would you like to see play the lead role of the new film?
