‘The Crow’ reboot will look like ‘Batman Begins’
Posted by GoreMaster Special Effects on November 24, 2009
While the upcoming reboot for The Crow has not received the almighty greenlight, that hasn’t stopped producer Ryan Kavanaugh from being optimisc about the project.
“The Crow is definitely going to happen, we’re just getting all the pieces together right now,” he said. “It’s not officially greenlit, but it’s going to happen. I think in a couple months we could have the package together for sure.”
Putting fans of the original Crow at ease, Kavanaugh stated that the film will not be a direct remake of the original classic starring the late Brandon Lee. Instead, it’s looked upon to be a relaunch of the franchise. Also, he’s already talking with actors.
“We’re approaching it differently,” he said. “It’s really a whole relaunch of the franchise, much more of a dark superhero type.”
The new Crow character will be “much more present day” and “he’ll have makeup, but it will be different. The best way to compare it is the first Batman and Batman Begins. In terms of their look and feel and character.”
The new The Crow, based on the work of James O’Barr, will be directed by Stephen Norrington.
