In what seems like years of internet time, way back in March, we told you about the possibility of Luke Evans (who you can currently see playing Orlando Bloom playing The Bard in The Hobbit 2 this December) being cast as the lead in The Crow remake. That rumor still stands, but another possible casting has popped up, one Norman Reedus, the actor currently playing Daryl on The Walking Dead.
According to the source for the Schmoes, Norman Reedus is currently the leading actor up for the lead role of James. Now, as for exactly who James is, no one is sure. Perhaps Reedus is aiming to try his hand at villainy, or is it a cover for another actor they are considering for the role of Eric Draven? The only James this reporter is aware of dealing with The Crow is the author James O'Barr.
Any guesses faithful readers?
Another bit of interesting casting gossip is that Kristen Stewart was originally being considered for the role of Shelley. But producers have moved away after "hearing she wouldn't attract an audience."

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
