In his latest interview, the action star of "The Transporter" Jason Statham revealed that he wants to portray "The Crow". On January 24, the English actor expressed his interest on playing a part in the remake of the action thriller movie.

On the occasion, he said, "You know, there's talk of them redoing The Crow. That was a good movie with Brandon Lee, although that was years ago." He then admitted his wish stating, "So if that one comes my way, bang! You know, there's so many comic book movies out there and most of the time there's only a handful of people who can do them any justice. Hopefully, they'll come my way for one of them."

Originally, the 1994 film directed by Alex Proyas is an adaptation of James O'Barr's comic book with the same title. It was starred by Brandon Lee and Rochelle Davis. The movie gained its reputation even before it was release due to Lee's accidental death during the filming. The 28-year-old son of the legendary Bruce Lee was killed following a scene in which Michael Massee who played the villain Funboy fired the supposedly blank gun at Lee.

Statham firstly was noticed by the film industry after his performance as a hard man Bacon in Guy Ritchie's 1998 "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels". Since then, he has appeared in various films including "Ghosts of Mars", "Mean Machine", "The Italian Job", "Revolver" and "The Pink Panther". Recently, he is involved in "The Bank Job", "Crank 2: High Voltage" and "Transporter 3".

With much respect for Brandon Lee, I think that Jason Statham can do the role of The Crow. I think that he can at least revive the movie that they all failed to continue the legacy of Brandon. Let's face it, there's only one Brandon Lee and will always be remembered as the original leading man for The Crow. I must say Statham can also move smoothly with grace and finesse. Let's give him a chance to continue the legacy of The Crow.

well, he can't do much worse than the last 2 crow remakes. i agree about furlong... that remake made me sick, and crow resurrection spent too much money on the big names instead of actual plot and acting abilities...

If you're going to remake "The Crow", pull Statham out and put Mark Dacascos in.

Please don't touch "The Crow" Edward Furlong already ruined it enough.
