The 1994 movie is getting a reboot and I am not so sure how I feel about it. Back then, I had watched the film several times, and really enjoyed the dark, gloomy atmosphere, the truly bad bad-guys and the pure acts of revenge.
Stephen Norrington (‘Blade’) had already penned a script for The Crow that takes place in the Southwest and also in an urban setting. According to The Wrap however, Nick Cave has been asked to rewrite the material.
The Wrap: Well apparently Norrington’s take wasn’t quite “terrific” enough, as Pressman recently told TheWrap that none other than iconic musician and acclaimed screenwriter Nick Cave has come on to rewrite the script.
It also appears that soon the there will be an announcement about who will land the role of Eric Draven and that the crow itself will be more of an actual character than in Alex Proyas’ 1994 original.
