Last month, word first broke that actor Luke Evans may exit the upcoming remake of The Crow and now TheWrap is reporting that Evans has officially departed the project. Relativity Studios is currently on the hunt for another star for the film, which has already had one director drop out in the midst of production.

Music video helmer Corin Hardy (The Hallow) is still attached to direct The Crow, which features a script by Cliff Dorfman. Series creator James O’Barr will also work as a creative consultant on the film. No release date is currently set though production has previously been reported to begin later this year.

“The Crow” was originally published as a four issue series in 1989 and was adapted into a film in 1994 by Alex Proyas with Brandon Lee in the title role. Countless other sequels to both the comic and film have been produced in the years following.
