What fresh hell is this? It appears that wee Corey Feldman lookalike and dub step perpetrator Skrillex is set to star in a remake of “The Crow.” The cursed 1994 film starring Brandon Lee is probably as well known for Lee’s accidental on-set death as it is for being a cult-fave among comic book fans. There’s been four additional “Crow” films since the original, but most have been straight to video. Bradley Cooper was originally supposed to star in the remake, but dropped out. So now Skrillex is set to star in the film, despite the fact that he’s got no prior acting experience, so obviously this is going to end really well. [Mix Mag]
UPDATE: According to a rep for the studio we spoke with, they have not offered the role to Skrillex and have yet to cast anyone in the remake. Phew.
