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.
