Is The Crow still cursed?

While Forest Whitaker is in talks to join the cast of The Crow, the film has lost its lead actor, Jack Huston.

Director Corin Hardy told Variety:

Jack Huston is unfortunately unavailable to continue with us on ‘The Crow.’

‘The Crow’ is an amazing project, and I am grateful that we have the time and patience to get it right. We look forward to unveiling our new lead and starting to film over the next several weeks.

Relativity Studios is reportedly considering Nicholas Hoult (Warm BodiesMad Max: Fury Road) and Jack O’Connell (Unbroken) as possible replacements. The studio had this to say of the situation:

“Jack is a remarkably gifted actor, and we look forward to working with him in the future,” the studio said. “Corin Hardy has a tremendous vision for ‘The Crow,’ and we are working closely with him to continue prepping the movie and supporting him as he brings his vision to the bigscreen.”

I personally think Nicholas Hoult would be a great pick. He was amazing in Mad Max.
