New details swoop in regarding Stephen Norrington's re-imagining of The Crow

Jun. 2, 2010by: George Merchan
MTV recently got the chance to chat it up with Edward Pressman, producer of THE CROW films, and revealed new tidbits of info on the impending reboot/re-imagining/rewhateverthef*ck of the popular cult film.

In regards to Stephen Norrington (THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, BLADE) and his script, it is apparently "terrific". And in discussing the film's new design, Pressman commented on illustrations done by production designer Rob Stromberg (ALICE IN WONDERLAND, AVATAR) saying that "[it will be] quite different from Alex Proyas' approach with the original 'Crow.'" Nothing new there really, as it simply confirms what we've known from pretty much the start.

Pressman went on to add that what with the film's pre-production moving along at a good clip, we can probably expect to hear casting news sooner than later: "[We've got an offer out] to a major actor and things are moving ahead very aggressively, with the aim of doing the film this year." Major, huh? Does that mean these hombres are not in the running?

But what about the titular fowl itself? Pressman said, "The Crow itself is a creature in this movie - it's not just a bird. It's got a personality and a character. Not like Godzilla exactly, but it's very different [and has] a more active role in the story."

To read more of Pressman's comments on THE CROW, head on over to MTV.

Against my better judgement...still kinda intrigued. I have a bad feeling that it'll look like a Blade or Underworld flick tho. That would be a bad thing.

I love the original, one of my favorite movies of all time. For me to be midly interested in this, it depends on who they cast. Even if they do cast someone that is good, I still think this is a bad idea

This is stupid

[link] is simply just another way to merchandise the shit out of this property, and a "major" actor. Awesome, Ashton Kutcher, Jake Gyllenhal, or Zack Effron.
This smells like a big pile of crow shit.

Read the graphic novels. The crow talks to Eric a lot, he taunts him, and there's also skull cowboy.

Color me fascinated. In the original graphic novel the crow talked to Eric. When they're raping his girlfriend the crow stands in front of Eric telling him "Eric, don't look. You don't want to see this."

I'm open to a new movie, personally. Call it morbid curiosity.

Does this mean there'll be a whole new generation of sadcases who will sweatily stroll through town sporting corpse-paint and long, black, leather overcoats in the middle of a blazing hot summer? Those blokes used to crack me the fuck up back in the '90s.

There are not enough curse words in my vocabulary to properly express how I feel about this remake.

Oh that's a shame

First thing I thought of when I heard "The Crow Re-make" was a Godzilla like movie

I'm hoping the crow is fifty feet tall and can demolish buildings with a single, shrill "Caw!"

Well I'm sorry to disappoint you, but it's been rumored that this film will be nothing like Godzilla...

..I know, shocking right.
