Mark Wahlberg has apparently been offered the lead role in Stephen Norrington's remake of The Crow.

According to Empire, by way of, The Other Guys star has yet to commit to the film that will be helmed by Blade director Norrington, but an offer has been made. Plot details are unknown, but singer Nick Cave has (co?) penned the script, and is still working on a final draft.

Not exactly who you would've instantly thought of for the role, but at least it'd be different...
