Watchmen screenwriter Alex Tse to write Crow reboot

06.22.2011by:

While the Weinstein Company and Relativity Media battle it out in court, Relativity has brought someone on board to pen the script.

The guy they hired to script the "reinvention" is Alex Tse. This isn't the first time that Tse has had to adapt original source material. He did it for 2009's THE WATCHMEN and will also be writing the live action version of NINJA SCROLL.

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 WEEKS LATER) will be handling helming duties and Bradley Cooper is still attached to star. Relativity had this to say about the pairing of Fresnadillo and Tse, "The original film is known for its breakthrough visual style as well as its unique production design and cinematography. Fresnadillo and Tse are perfectly suited to bring these beloved characters back to life, and to create a world worthy of this modern classic."

Personally, I think that Tse and co-writer David Hayter did a great job of adapting and condensing THE WATCHMEN the way they did. So it should be interesting to see what Tse does with James O'Barr's material.

Extra Tidbit: Still shocked by this.

This could be a good thing

While I am a big fan of Brandon Lee, and the original film, I am an even bigger fan of the book. The Watchmen daptation was pretty faithful to the source with the exception of the squid, and if this movie adapts the book instead of the first film, it could be awesome. And I have no problem with Bradley Cooper as Eric. I just hope they go dark instead of light. Making this movie in any way funny or lighthearted would be a huge mistake.

Concerning the tidbit:
Like we hadn't had enough reasons to be envious of Mr. Cooper.

The original is an absolute favorite of mine. But I love the story and character so much, I would like to see another adaption. Closer to the comic (black & white scenes) and NO BRADLEY COOPER.

David Hayter should do a Metal Gear Solid movie. Seriously.

An Original Idea, Anyone? Please?

The Weinstein's need to focus on smaller Oscar bait films to get their company back to the hey day of Miramax. Doing a reboot of a fairly profitable film that spawned terrible sequels is not the way to go. Step up your game, Harvey!

Undecided...

The original Crow was a great movie...but it was written by the guy who was coming off Critters 3 and Critters 4...so I think it's safe to say at the writing stage this is a good choice as Watchmen wasn't really that bad.
