Although fans of The Crow have had mixed feelings about a The Crow remake, it appears that the production is moving forward. Producer Edward R. Pressman said that the production is set to get going “in the spring” and as far as we can tell, Dracula Untold star Luke Evans is still attached to play the lead.
"It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago. But the generation today doesn’t even know 'The Crow,'" Pressman said to The Hollywood Reporter, as to why he’s pursuing a remake.
He feels that audiences are ready for a return to the character that he calls “the anti Spider-Man.”
Luke Evans will take the role made tragically famous by Brandon Lee, who died during the filming of the cult classic. As far as we know, F. Javier Guitierrez is still attached to direct. In a stroke of genius, they’re using The Crow creator James O’Barr as a creative consultant, which can only be a good thing.
What's fascinating is that The Crow was supposed to be at Comic-Con, but nothing ever materialized, leaving us guessing if the remake was indeed still happening. Guess this answers that question!
