WTF? Mark Wahlberg could be the new Crow?

It could be time to break out the goth makeup, Mark Wahlberg may be taking over from the late Brandon Lee in the new version of The Crow.

Word across the Interweb says an official offer hasn't been made yet, but the Oscar winner is apparently in talks with Relativity Media to star in the upcoming remake/reboot of Alex Proyas’ 1994 comic book-based movie. That film is notorious as Lee was tragically killed on the set when a prop gun misfired.

The news is slightly surprising because Wahlberg is considered an A-list star and the series, which degenerated into straight-to-video fair by the time it was done, hasn't lent itself to such talent. Then again, his recent efforts, including the incredibly shitty Max Payne and The Happening, might mean his star has fallen.

Personally, Wahlberg seems a terrible choice. Then again, it's hard to top the work the late Lee did. He owned the role and producers should have left well enough alone after the first one.


  1. This is stupid. The sequals were an insult to Brandon Lee's original role as it was. Now to REMAKE it? Come one, Hollywood- give the remakes a rest.

    *cranky, irritated, and utterly annoyed grumbling...*

    1. I couldn't agree more, it's really pathetic and extremely annoying
