‘The Crow’ Remake Lives Again

The film markets appear to be key in getting this new The Crow reboot off the ground, and with AFM approaching Relativity is taking a new approach.

Producer Ed Pressman (Wall Street, American Psycho) has revealed that The Crow remake’s long and bumpy road could finally be reaching an end, with production targeted to start next year, reports THR.

Pressman, who was in Abu Dhabi to attend the International Showbiz Expo and also to collect a lifetime achievement award from the festival, described The Crow as “the anti-Spider-Man.”

“It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago,” he said. “But the generation today doesn’t even know The Crow.” A true statement, which sort of gives a reason to bring the awesome comic antihero back to life.

A string of actors have been linked to play the iconic role made famous by the late Brandon Lee — who died in the making of the first film — with Dracula Untold’s Luke Evans the current favorite.

While Pressman said that nothing regarding casting was confirmed at this stage, we know here at Bloody Disgusting that the film is being shopped at the upcoming American Film Market with Evans attached.

The 1994 adaptation starred Brandon Lee as a man brutally murdered who comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée’s murder.

    Of course, successful comic books are notoriously difficult to adapt without ruffling feathers among the existing fan base. http://x.co/5gmzb

      Its a graphic novel not a comic book.

      • The “graphic novel” was a collection of the individually released comic books.

  • a very British hamster

    Get Fede Alvarez, James Wan, Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, Jim Mickle or Jeremy Saulnier to direct!

    They are better off doing it for the original Crow fans and if new fans want to see it, cool. Not just for this shitty generation where kids go on youtube saying retarded shit like “i used to watch this when i was a kid, now i am 11” literally.

    They should either leave it alone completely, or have utter respect for the mythology of the original movie and its fans. Also, I’m not really for Evans here – I’d rather see Bradley Cooper or Tom Hiddleston take on this iconic role.

  • I remember when I first heard about this years ago and I was beyond upset. But now I don’t care about it happening at all because I’ve come to realize that whether it’s good or awful it won’t affect my love of the original movie in any way.
