Relativity Media’s reboot of The Crow has been a long time coming. Back in 2009 Stephen Norrington (Blade) was writing and set to direct. Nick Cave eventually rewrote the script, and Mark Wahlberg might have starred. But Norrington moved on, and thus began a cycle of new directors and actors being linked to the project. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo almost made the movie with Bradley Cooper starring, and then F. Javier Gutiérrez signed to direct, with Jesse Wigutow writing.
Actors from James McAvoy to Tom Hiddleston have been linked to the lead role since, but now we have a definitive choice to play murdered musician Eric Draven, who is brought back to Earth to avenge his death, and the murder of his fiancé. No, really. This one is going to happen. Read More »

Relativity’s remake of The Crow has gone through several potential leading men over the past couple of years. Bradley Cooper was attached for a while; when he left, Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum were eyed as replacements. As recently as February, James McAvoy was circling the project. Now, it’s Tom Hiddleston‘s turn to flirt with the role.
The Avengers actor is reportedly in early talks to play Eric Draven, the protagonist played by Brandon Lee in the 1994 movie. F. Javier Gutierrez is directing the new film.

Briefly: Another Sundance hit is prepping for a theatrical bow. Relativity has just announced an October 18 wide release for Don Jon (formerly Don Jon’s Addiction), Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s crowd-pleasing feature directorial debut. The deal was one of the biggest at this year’s Sundance, so the splashy rollout shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Don Jon faces some rather varied competition on that date, including The Seventh Son, Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie remake, and Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
In addition to directing, Gordon-Levitt also leads the cast as a ladies’ man addicted to porn. His former Angels in the Outfield co-star Tony Danza plays his dad, and Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore portray two very different women who teach him about the ways of love. Read Germain’ full-length review from Sundance here.
Much like John Carter of Mars became John Carter, Don Jon’s Addiction is now officially Don Jon. Writer/director/star Joseph Gordon-Levitt took to Facebook Friday to reveal he decided to change the title of his hilarious online-porn comedy and, dropped a few news images on us as well. That’s one above and, after the jump, you can see more (including co-stars Scarlett Johansson and Tony Danza) plus read Gordon-Levitt’s reasons for the title change, updates on a trailer and more.
