“The Crow” is back from the dead.
The remake film’s producer Ed Pressman confirmed that the production will begin next year in the spring as he told The Hollywood Reporter at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.
He believed the remake of the film will generate plenty of interest for the new generation of moviegoers. The producer even remarked it’s the “anti-Spider-Man.”
"It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago," he said. "But the generation today doesn't even know ‘The Crow.’"
The revenge story follows Eric Draven who was brutally murdered and came back to life to avenge his and his fiancee’s murder.

Attending the Abu Dhabi Film Festival this week, producer Edward R. Pressman revealed that production begins on The Crow remake this spring, while revealing that no cast members have been confirmed at this time.
We reported in May 2013 that Luke Evans (Dracula Untold, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) had signed on to play Eric Draven, and the actor has spoke about the role in interviews over the past year. The Hollywood Reporter states that the actor is the "current favorite" for the role, which contradicts the May 2013 report that he has already signed on. We also reported last November that The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus was in talks to play a character named James.

Describing the character as “the anti-Spider-Man”, Pressman stated that: “It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago. But the generation today doesn’t even know The Crow.”
As yet, there’s been no official word on who will replace Brandon Lee in the lead role as Eric Draven, although The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and Dracula Untold star Luke Evans is said to be the favourite.

One project that seems to have fallen through the cracks has been the remake of "The Crow". Filmmaker F. Javier Gutierrez and actor Luke Evans have both been attached to the project since early 2013 and the original plan was to being production in early 2014.
That never happened, but the plan now seems to begin filming in Spring next year according to veteran producer Edward R. Pressman who appeared at the recent Abu Dhabi Film Festival.
Pressman calls the project "the anti-Spider-Man... It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago. But the generation today doesn’t even know 'The Crow.'"
At last report, original series creator James O'Barr will serve as a creative consultant on the project which aims to be faithful to the original comics.

In an interview during the opening night of the Abu Dubai Film Festival, Pressman spoke briefly with The Hollywood Reporter about the long-gestating project, claiming that the property still has a considerable fanbase even to this day.
“We’re doing a new Crow film. We’re doing a whole reinvention of The Crow, which will be starting next spring. It’s developed. We have the script. We can’t say who’s starring in it, but we have one. It starts shooting in the spring. It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago. But the generation »

Hey, remember that 2013 interview we conducted at Comic-Con where we learned The Crow redo was going to begin shooting fall of 2013? Well, that never happened. The planned new film has been plagued with false starts, but maybe there's hope?

This remake refuses to really go away. I really liked Alex Proyas' take on The Crow back when it came out in 1994, but the film and the accompanying material are just so much of that time that it's difficult to see how it would work as well today. I think back to that movie and I think of Nine Inch Nails, Thrill Kill Kult, the death of Brandon Lee and the catchphrase, "it can't rain all the time." I don't think back to the film's quality, which was patchwork at best (Proyas would do better work later on). Maybe that's where this remake could make some improvements. If they could find another, more relevant, cultural signpost than mainstream 90's goth and make a more consistent film, then it might be worth it. Producer Ed Pressman is certainly trying to make it happen. Hit the jump for more on The Crow remake. »

There are no good guys in “John Wick,” but there are some great actors working alongside Keanu Reeves in his darkest and most tormented role yet: a stunningly lethal contract killer who goes on a rampage after a Russian thug murders his dog. Yes, his dog. If you can stomach the setup, then the rest is pure revenge-movie gold, as Reeves reminds what a compelling action star he can be, while the guy who served as his stunt double in “The Matrix” makes a remarkably satisfying directorial debut, delivering a clean, efficient and incredibly assured thriller with serious breakout potential, thanks in part to Summit’s simultaneous Imax release.
That unsung hero is Chad Stahelski, the stunt guru who stepped into Brandon Lee’s shoes on “The Crow” and spent the next two decades absorbing all the behind-the-scenes filming lessons that make “John Wick” such a technically impeccable actioner. (Stahelski »

Sony has been trying to revive Ghostbusters for many, many years, but it has been a fruitless struggle. Scripts for a third Ghostbusters have been written and rewritten tons of times, but in the end we will never see the original Ghostbusters crossing streams. Bummer. As you know, Bill Murray ("Groundhog Day") has never wanted to do it and Dan Aykroyd ("Spies Like Us") was always open and active about it. I feel bad for Ernie Hudson ("The Crow"), he spends most of weekends going from one comic book convention to the next dressing up in his Ghostbusters uniform while discussing two films he was marginalized in. And yet, he still hoped that he would get to one more chance to play 'Winston Zeddemore.' As for Harold Ramis ("Knocked Up") , I don't know how he feels about the latest Ghostbusters 3 news as he won't return my calls. With »

In addition to terrorizing teenagers on the silver screen, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees stalked and slashed 8-bit characters in the worlds of two 1989 Nes games appropriately titled A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th.

Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. With The Crow, director Alex Proyas made a huge mark on the main stream showing a lot of promise with his signature style and dark tone. While the likes of I, Robot and Knowing have seen his styleget diluted throughout the years, it was his third feature that showed Proyas at his best, and gave us a great sense of what he could achieve. That movie was 1998's Dark City. One full year before The Matrix (which also used some of the same sets), Dark City explored many similar themes and even shared many plot beats with The Wachowski's sci-fi classic, but while that movie went big and flashy, Dark City went smaller and deeper, with Rufus Sewell's John Murdoch discovering the city »
