The Crow remake has featured a revolving door of actors taking the role of the iconic character. Finally, landed the role. Still, fans have remained very skeptical, especially considering Latino Review reported that the current script featured a Bible-quoting cop as the main character. Luckily, Relatively got in touch with them and said that the script is now drastically different. That does change the fact that diehard Crow and (and the occasional and ) fans aren't holding their breath for this to become a great project. To lure everyone back, Relativity has hired the creator of the series, , as a creative consultant on the movie. He told this to Variety:
It is important for 'Crow' fans to understand that Relativity, Javier, Luke and the entire team are working on a new adaptation of the book itself. I believe that this movie will stand alongside Brandon and his film as a valid work of art, and I look forward to collaborating on the project.
O'Barr is reportedly heading to Comic-Con this year to talk about the remake. The original 1994 film featured a musician coming back from the dead. It eventually went on to gross $140 million worldwide, but its success was eclipsed by the horrifying news that Brandon Lee died while filming.
Are you guys more excited about this project now that O'Barr is on board? I personally love the source material and the first film. Pretty much everyone hated the sequels, but I definitely enjoyed them on a guilty pleasure, I-cannot-believe-this-is-happening level. I'm remaining cautiously optimistic about this new one, but I also wouldn't be surprised if I'm severely disappointed. This all makes me realize how much I'm really waiting for a Spawn Reboot.
