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.
