UPDATED: Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has dropped out of The Crow remake

4 years agoby:

UPDATED: Deadline has confirmed Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's exit from THE CROW reboot-- and yes, he's moving on to the HIGHLANDER remake.

Awww, another director has left THE CROW reboot. I am so sad. It's just so terrible. FALSE. I am not sad.

Another one bites the dust. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 WEEKS LATER) has left the project. Possibly to do the HIGHLANDER remake. Now this hasn't been confirmed as of yet but for some reason I have a feeling that it's not too far from the truth.

At first, Stephen Norrington was set as director with Nick Cave writing the script. Then Norrington was all like, "I don't like Cave's script." Um, you don't enjoy Nick Cave's writing? Well, I didn't enjoy THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN even though the script is really to blame on that one. Anyway, old news is old. The disagreement led to Cave getting the boot then Norrington took off.

Next thing you know, Fresnadillo is in with Bradley Cooper taking the lead. Alex Tse (WATCHMEN) got the job as screenwriter. Then Cooper left to take that role in PARADISE LOST.

So can this whole thing just stop now? Please...

Dont need this

Fresnadillo is a talented guy so im sure his take wouldve been interesting but yeah who needs this? I have to admit it wouldve been sortve cool when Norrington was doing it with Nick Cave and going back to the gritty, urban feel of the comic instead of the stylized Gothic of the original movie but ever since that fell apart I really couldnt care less.

Forget the highlander remake, I want a good highlander rpg game. That alone could be a good crowd pleaser. As for the crow, they should have stopped with the first movie. No one beats the original.

Yeah Verbinski who was going to produce it said recently that Bioshock is dead, Im pretty bummed about it since it was one of the few video game adaptations that couldve knocked it out the park.

The Crow is NOT a classic. The only reason people even remember it is because Bruce Lee's only son died during the making of it. Fact. Remaking it makes sense. Comic book hero with fan base, potential franchise.

Honestly, I agree. Love the film but if Lee had survived, it probably would just be remembered as a jumping off point for Lee's career

The Crow is not a comic book hero. The story from the comics is actually a dark tragedy against a supernatural backdrop. The creator of the Crow, James 'O Barr, created the character as a sort of therapy after he suffered a tragic loss. There are are no superhero elements. And those that love both remember them for more than Lee's death. Fact. Read the source material and you might have more respect for what Lee and Proyas (director) created.

I have read it, I own it, and its one of my more treasured graphic novels. So I know there is enough potential that a new movie can stand on its own much like the new True Grit stands on its own

Egh.

I was interested when Nick Cave was writing the script. Then I heard Bradley Cooper was circling around it. Now they've lost another director? I'd rather they not at this point.

There's hope

This should be a sign by now that the remake is a bad idea, but come hell or high water, Hollywood is going to get this made. Remember how the Basic Instinct sequel went through fifty possible casting choices before resorting to an unknown? The movie ended up stinking, but Hollywood got it made no matter what.

The remake can be done, because while the original film is a classic, the graphic novels are radically different and there's material to be mined from the original graphic novel to

The remake can be done, because while the original film is a classic, the graphic novels are radically different and there's material to be mined from the original graphic novel to build a remake that is its own animal. The remake can be a classic in its own right if they stopped picking off of Brandon Lee's corpse and just went their own direction.

Agreed. I could see a remake working if anyone involved was willing to actually take it seriously. But, yeah, that's never going to happen. So just leave it alone. There's already enough bad remakes coming out, we really don't need any more of them.
