James McAvoy on The Crow: ‘It’s Not for Real.’

Since a reboot of The Crow was announced a few years back, many names have bandied about to play the eponymous character, for instance Mark Wahlberg and Bradley Cooper.

The latest actor rumored to be attached is James McAvoy who is making the press rounds talking about his turn in Dany Boyle’s Trance and is about to star, once again, as Professor Xavier in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Getty Images in the UK caught up to the actor who address the latest Crow buzz.

“It’s not for real,” he told the site.  “I don’t think it’s materialized into anything truthful yet… it’s just been rumour mill stuff.”

There’s a chance he hasn’t been approached about it, or there’s a chance he has but the project is not in a place where he feels he’s ready to commit or there’s a chance the whole thing is bunk, but there you go.  No Crow for McAvoy for now.
