Well, kiddies it’s happening. For now anyway.
“The Crow” remake/reboot/redo/reimagining is officially a-go. Booyah.
The project has been on and off for several years now, but it’s currently on and Relatively Media/Dimension Films have settled on a director. Brace yourselves. It’s F. Javier Gutierrez.
GASP! I know! THE director of “Before the Fall!” Step aside Spielberg, the Gute-man is captaining this ship.
Not only that, but the two studios have found themselves a writer as well. Some guy named Jesse Wigutow has been bought in to give the script a little bit of a polish.
You know, I’m normally open to the idea of a remake (see: “Evil Dead”), but this one just seems like a horrible idea. The original “Crow” is an absolute masterpiece. Brandon Lee is perfection in his final performance. Three very mediocre-to-awful sequels and one lame TV show have tried to expand on “The Crow” and they’ve all failed.
Let’s just leave it at that, shall we?
