Tom Hiddleston for The Crow?

Tom Hiddleston, the man better known as Loki from The Avengers and Thor, is in early talks to star in the remake of The Crow.  While the talks are said to be at an early stage Hiddleston has submitted a make-up test from home to see if he had the right look for the part which the producers were clearly impressed with.  The film will follow the same comic book adaptation of the original 1994 version, which became infamous for the tragic death of star Brandon Lee, about a rocker and his fiancé who are murdered only for him to be brought back to life as a supernatural avenging angel.  The film has been in development for some time with the likes of Mark Wahlberg, James McAvoy and Bradley Cooper all linked to the title role.  The script was written by Warrior’s Cliff Dorfman and is being directed by Before The Fall’s F. Javier Gutierrez.  Before he dons The Crow’s iconic make-up we’ll see Hiddleston Joanna Hogg’s London Project before heading to Thor: The Dark World.  Source – The Wrap
