The actor was said to have been in talks to reprise Brandon Lee's character of Eric Draven in a new version of the 1994 comic book cult classic, but he admits he passed on the project.

He tells, "We never committed to making the movie. They talked to me about it and there was a director attached who I was a fan of, and he's no longer doing it. We just thought about it: 'Is there something cool to be done there?' But we're not committed to making the movie."

The original film, which starred martial arts legend Bruce Lee's son Brandon, was marred by tragedy - Lee was accidentally shot and killed in North Carolina during the shoot.
