The Crow Creator Shares Remake Update & Details Subscribe Now! ► http://bit.ly/SubClevverMovies If you’re planning to dress as The Crow this Halloween for the 20th time in a row and are excited for the planned remake, this story is for you. Believe it or not, it’s been 20 years since the release of The Crow starring Brandon Lee as “Eric Draven” in his final film. In honor of this milestone, blog Korsgaard’s Commentary posted an interview with The Crow creator James O’Barr on of course Devil’s Night. In the interview, O’Barr explained his reason for initially not wanting to be a part of the new film saying that he didn’t feel a remake was necessary and didn’t want to cash in on the cult status of Lee. He changed his mind when director F. Javier Gutierrez flew from Spain on his own dime to meet with O’Barr and explained that he wasn’t interested in doing a remake either. In Gutierrez’s opinion, the film was perfect and he instead wanted to do a page-for-page adaption of the original book. O’Barr explained that, though the original film had the right feel and flavor, it contained only about 40% of the book. He was intrigued by the prospect of a straight adaptation and keeping in what he calls the “darker or stranger elements of the comic [that were] dropped from the original film.” He went on to say, “we’re not remaking the movie, we’re readapting the book.” Despite producer Ed Pressman recently telling THR that casting on the film is not confirmed, O’Barr says he met with Luke Evans, who has long been rumored to be attached to the film, and gave him his blessing to take on the role and says he’s seen Evans in the make-up and thinks he looks great. As for his involvement in the new film, O’Barr says he, Gutierrez and Evans approached the studio and said they would only do it if all three of them worked on it together. O’Barr also insisted on control of the soundtrack and wanted input on the casting, script and characters. Apparently wanting to turn The Crow into a franchise, the studio agreed and production on the film is set to begin in the spring. As for the soundtrack, O’Barr oversaw the original film’s music and is interested in including music from bands like Joy Division and The Cure, which they were unable to get the rights to the first time around.
