Luke Evans gives an update on The Crow

It was only yesterday that we learned Luke Evans would be stepping into Brandon Lee’s shoes to star in the long-awaited remake of The Crow , but the star hasn’t wasted any time generating a bit of hype around his new role…

The Crow was a very poignant film from my childhood, which I remember vividly," says Evans of the original movie. “The soundtrack, also. It was such a solid performance that Brandon Lee gave. It was a very tragic end for somebody that probably would have had a very promising career...”

“I'm Eric Draven,” he explains. “I'm the same character. Obviously, he's been refreshed and brought up to date. We're reimagining it to a certain extent, but the story and the plot is mostly the same.”

Meanwhile, Evans was also asked about the possibility of his Fast & Furious 6 character making a second appearance, either through a sequel or a solo movie, and didn’t sound too displeased by the idea…

“Maybe," he said, when asked about a potential return. “I'm very busy for at least a year and a half, so nothing would happen until then. There's definitely stuff that could play out there, though. Most definitely.”

You can see Evans in action when Fast & Furious 6 roars into UK cinemas on 17 May 2013 (before hitting the US on 24 May).
