I love The Crow, and it will always have a special place in my heart, but I just can’t hide the fact that I’m excited as all hell for a franchise reboot. It took 15 years, but Alex Proyas’ adaptation of James O’Barr’s comic is straight up dated. This afternoon io9 caught up with Ryan Kavanaugh, the man producing the remake being penned by Stephen Norrington.
In the original comic, a man brutally murdered comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée’s murder.
“It’s not a remake it’s literally a relaunch of the franchise,” Producer Ryan Kavanaugh reveals to io9 during an interview for his forthcoming film Brothers.
He adds that the make-up will also be very different and uses Batman as a comparison.
“No, totally different… He’ll have makeup, but it will be different. The best way to compare it is the first ‘Batman’ and ‘Batman Begins’. In terms of their look and feel and character.”
While the project has yet to be greenlit, things are progressing well.
“Yeah we’re still tweaking it, but it’s finished,” he says of the script. “We’re very excited about it. The Crow is definitely going to happen, we’re just getting all the pieces together right now. It’s not officially greenlit, but it’s going to happen… I think in a couple months we could have the package together for sure.”
