James O'Barr and The Crow remake are headed to San Diego Comic-Con

Jul. 2, 2013by: Ryan Miller

Here's one out of left field. According to Variety, James O’Barr, creator of the original “The Crow” graphic novel, has come on board as a consultant on Relativity Media’s upcoming remake of THE CROW. F. Javier Gutierrez will be helming the adaptation and will be attending Comic-Con along with O’Barr to discuss the film and meet with fans. Getting O'Barr involved in the project is huge and should make some fans rest easy knowing that this one is in the right hands. Check out what he had to say:

“It is important for ‘Crow’ fans to understand that Relativity, Javier, Luke and the entire team are working on a new adaptation of the book itself,” said O’Barr on the website. “I believe that this movie will stand alongside Brandon and his film as a valid work of art, and I look forward to collaborating on the project.” That's all we've got for now folks but expect some juicy new details after their panel at Comic-Con.

Luke Evans will star in the film with Ed Pressman, Kevin Misher, Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and Jeff Most producing.

I take it you guys have never actually read the graphic novel? If you had, you would dig this news. The Alex Proyas film is fine for what it is, but it completely pales in comparison to the book. If they make a movie that is more like the book, it will shit all over the original film.

Sorry, I've read the graphic novel and I don't see this happening. If it stands alone as a great film, I'll be impressed. If it actually is better than the original, I'll be impressed. I don't see that happening, but having O'Barr consulting on the project is at least something. I'll be interested to see the finished product.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, this is a dumb idea and an unnecessary remake regardless of who is involved.

It will take a lot of effort to convince me this film needs to be made. It will take a lot more to beat the original.

That's what Kevin Eastman keeps saying about the new Ninja Turtles movie too, and the more I hear about that movie, the less interested I become. I don't think The Crow needs a remake personally, it's such a product of it's time, but that's never stopped them before.
