‘The Crow’ Remake Finally Takes Flight

‘The Crow’ Remake Finally Takes Flight

Since earlier than there was ever a ScreenCrush (which suggests a minimum of 10 years now) there was discuss of a remake/reboot of The Crow. A stroll via the ScreenCrush archives will reveal articles about Tom Hiddleston presumably enjoying the title function, or Luke Evans changing into the Crow, or a interval the place Corin Hardy turned the director, or Jason Momoa wanting into the venture pre-Aquaman, or a second the place the entire venture received resurrected at Sony after falling aside at Relativity Media, after which the second a short time later when that venture collapsed too.

So preserve all that in thoughts after I say this: Somebody is making a brand new model of The Crow. Like, I’m certain they completely intend to. Perhaps they’ll! However there’s additionally a lot of cause to be a bit of skeptical about ever really seeing it.

When you do see it, this model of The Crow, launched by Lionsgate, is ready to be directed by Rupert Sanders and star Invoice Skarsgard as the latest model of the title character. Within the 1994 movie, primarily based on the comics by James O’Barr, the Crow — AKA Eric Draven — was performed by the late Brandon Lee. Draven is a musicians who’s introduced again to life to avenge his personal homicide, and the homicide of his fiancée. (Within the remake, FKA Twigs performs Draven’s fiancée.)

Lee was tragically killed on the set of The Crow when a prop gun fired a dummy cartridge that had been positioned into the weapon in an early scene, after which turned lodged contained in the gun with out anybody noticing. The Crow was then accomplished along with his stand-in (Chad Stahelski, who went on to change into the director of the John Wick sequence) subbing in for Lee within the remaining handful sequences to be shot. The Crow went on to change into a big hit in theaters and on residence video, and launched a complete movie franchise, though not one of the sequels got here near eclipsing the unique.

Lionsgate’s Charlotte Koh had this to say in regards to the new venture:

We admire what The Crow character and unique film imply to legions of followers and imagine this new movie will supply audiences an genuine and visceral reinterpretation of its emotional energy and mythology … To work with a inventive workforce led by Rupert’s unparalleled visible fashion and storytelling and with a producing workforce who’ve made a few of the hottest and impactful movies of the final a number of many years is a real privilege.

The venture can not get underway till the decision of the writers and actors strikes in Hollywood. And even after that, you’ll forgive me for taking a wait-and-see strategy to this film. The inventive workforce and forged appears good! However I might have stated that earlier than a few bunch of various variations of The Crow that by no means made it to the display.
