It’s been a long road to get the remake of The Crow into production, but according to producer Ed Pressman (Wall Street, American Psycho), they are finally looking to start shooting in 2015. The Crow reboot started its journey to the big screen back in 2010, and it’s set to star Luke Evans.
The Crow reboot is being directed by F. Javier Gutierrez, and the creator of the gothic comic, James O’Barr is on board to help steer the movie in the right direction. O’Barr previously talked about his pitch for the movie:
“I love the story and I told them I’d do it because I love the story, but it’s not a remake of the original. It’s a new interpretation. Of course, we have to fill some parts and new elements, but there was so much beauty and passion to the original. A lot in there we could do that was never done. That’s the main thing that captured my attention. We can do something original. The darkness, the beauty, the violence and love. That’s what got me excited. A lot of fans responded to the original movie, but this is going to be different. This is going to give them some good gifts. We’re going to pull some stuff from the original comic that’s going to be tough and we’re going to do it in an original and artistic way.”
One easily forget that today’s generation isn’t familiar with “The Crow.” The producer added that the remake would bring “a lot of parts of the story that were never really told” to the big screen.
Many of the hardcore fans of the original film have been very vocal and unhappy about this remake. But if you think about it, it can’t be any worse than the sequels that have been made over the years. I’m curious to see how this movie turns out, and in the end I’m sure fans of The Crow are still going to see the movie.
