Do we really need a reboot? No we don't ever NEED or even want reboots of the "classics" so instantly we say no it's a bad idea, however think of some of the films that are actually reboots that a lot of us love "Batman Begins", "Star Trek", "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "Ocean's Eleven" to name a few.
In an interview today Evans spoke about his role,
"['The Crow'] was a very poignant film from my childhood, which I remember vividly,” Evans told Collider.
“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.”
As for who he’ll play in the upcoming movie, Evans said, “I’m Eric
Draven. 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."
