Actor Mark Wahlberg may be starring in the film remake â€œThe Crowâ€. Fans may recall the tragic death of martial artist Brandon Lee during the filming of â€œThe Crowâ€ in 1994. Lee was accidentally shot and killed on-set when a prop gun improperly discharged, striking Brandon in the abdomen. Lee was pronounced dead following a six hour surgery. Mark Wahlberg should maybe think twice about starring in this dark thriller.
A source for EW.com has confirmed that while no offer has been made as of yet, Mark Wahlberg has been in talks with Relativity Media to star in the comic booked-based film.
If Wahlberg accepts, he will be playing the lead role of guitarist Eric Draven. Draven and his fiancÃ© are murdered and a year later Draven returns from the dead seeking revenge on the perpetrators. And, of course, at the end of the movie, Draven and his fiancÃ© Shelly are reunited at their graves.
The original film â€œThe Crowâ€ was a very dark and sinister movie. The whole aura of the movie and the surrounding death of Brandon Lee just reeks bad karma. Mark Wahlberg beware. What do you think? Would you like to see â€œThe Crowâ€ revisited?
