Deadline has it that it was a simple conversation that got overhyped and was reported like it was going to happen.
Seems kinda odd though as it was reported Tom Hiddleston was actively seeking the role and even sent over an audition tape that he made himself wearing the makeup, with it further reported that there would be more tests with better makeup as well.
Maybe what we can just get out of this is that Tom Hiddleston won't be in The Crow.
So who then?
Alexander Skarsgard, of True Blood, is mentioned as it's said the role in The Crow is his if he wants it, but no formal offers are on the table.
Skarsgard was set to star in David Yates's Tarzan, which Warner Bros. put on the backburner, and now things are heating up for the True Blood actor.
