Mark Wahlberg Offered <i>Crow</i> Lead

As if the remake of 1994’s comic adaptation The Crow wasn’t filled with an unusual collection of collaborators already, news has broken that Mark Wahlberg has been offered the lead role of Eric Draven, resurrected man out for revenge.

Bloody Disgusting has confirmed the news that Wahlberg has been offered the role in the new version of the movie, which is currently undergoing a script rewrite that brings together Stephen Norrington (Blade, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) and musician Nick Cave. Maybe it’s just because I’m so used to the Brandon Lee version of the character, but this seems more than a little out of left field, and not exactly what I was hoping for from the remake… What do you think?
