Skarsgard to fly to Crow remake?

Alexander Skarsgard has been offered the lead role in The Crow remake

Alexander Skarsgard is said to be in the running to star in The Crow remake.

It had previously been reported that Tom Hiddleston was in "early talks" to take the lead role of Eric Draven in the upcoming reboot, but Deadline now claims that the True Blood actor is the top contender instead.

Deadline reported that Tom's involvement was just "a simple conversation", but that Alexander has been offered the role although "no formal offer" has been made yet.

Production on the remake, which is being directed by Spanish filmmaker F Javier Gutierrez, is due to start in the autumn.

The film is based on a comic book by James O'Barrand, and follows a murder victim (the part Alexander could play) who rises from the grave so he can get revenge on the people who killed him and his fiancee.

The original 1994 movie, directed by Alex Proyas, starred Brandon Lee as Draven.

Alexander, who is best known for playing vampire Eric Northman in the True Blood, had been poised to star in Harry Potter director David Yates' version of Tarzan before it was halted.
