Producer Says Production on The Crow Remake to Start in Spring 2015. It’s been a while since we’ve heard news on the remake of The Crow, which was suppose to start in 2014. According to producer Edward Pressman, production on the remake will start during the spring of 2015.
The Hollywood Reporter spoke with the producer at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival on the status of The Crow remake. Edward clarified that the production would begin “in the spring” and called it “the anti-Spider-Man.”
“It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago,” Pressman said. “But the generation today doesn’t even know The Crow.”
James O’ Barr created The Crow in 1988. The plot centers on musician Eric Draven who gets murdered during an attack that also kills his fiancé. After being brought back from the dead by a supernatural crow, Eric uses his superhuman abilities to get revenge on his killers. The story was made into a feature film in 1994 starring Brandon Lee, who died during production in an on-set accident. The series made three more sequels following the 1994 film, including a television series.
A remake of the film was in development for a couple of years. The film picked Dracula Untold’s Luke Evans in the starring role, but Pressman has said that casting hasn’t been confirmed yet. F. Javier Gutierrez will be directing the film with James O’Barr working as a creative consultant. No release date has been given.
