One of my favorite films, and comics growing up were The Crow, created by James O’barr. While both were equally entertaining, there were some differences, especially the way Draven and his wife are murdered.
F. Javier Gutierrez, who has been hired to direct the latest adaptation, said to be a remake, will be even more faithful to the 1989 comic, O’barr told Total Film at the San Diego Comic-Con last month.
“It was his idea to go right back to the source material and essentially shoot it shot-for-shot, as in the book, but with a little more backstory for some of the characters,” O’Barr told them.
“He wants to be as faithful as possible, even down to all the visual metaphors of trains and horses.”
O’barr, who is active in this new version of his book, talks on seeing Luke Evans in make-up: “The producers showed me some shots of [Luke Evans] in the make-up and the tragedy really shows on his face, especially his eyes. He has a really commanding screen presence.”
He will play a man brutally murdered whom comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée’s murder.
