Creator James O’Barr gives update on The Crow

2 November 2014 9:45 PM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Things have been a little quiet on the long-promised revival of The Crow, but original creator James O’Barr has supplied a welcome update, stressing that the new film will not remake the Brandon Lee version, but will be a new spin on his comic-book. “We’re not remaking the movie, we’re readapting the book,” O’Barr told Collider. “My metaphor is that there is a Bela Lugosi Dracula and there’s a Francis Ford Coppola Dracula; they use the same material, but you still got two entirely different films.” “This one’s going to be closer to...

The Crow Creator Compares Reboot To Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver

31 October 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last month at Wizard World Richmond, Sean CW Korsgaard had the pleasure of interviewing James O'Barr, the creator of The Crow. Many topics were discussed but let's just focus on the reboot. Years back, when there was talking of remaking The Crow O'Barr was vocally opposed, but all of that changed when Spanish director Javier Guiterrez flew out to visit O'Barr and explained that he wouldn't be remaking Alex Proyas' The Crow, but actually adapting O'Barr's original graphic novel. O'Barr found this new approach intriguing as the 1994 film that starred Brandon Lee only covered about "40% of the book" - leaving out many of the "darker or stranger elements of the comic." After O'Barr decided to trust Guiterrez's vision he later met with Luke Evans ("Dracula Untold"), who wanted the creators blessing before taking on the lead role. O'Barr was impressed with Evans as well and all three decided to »

'The Crow' Creator James O'Barr Talks Remake Plans

31 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Crow isn't as precious as other comic book or genre properties that get rebooted for the big screen, simply because it has a long trail of direct-to-dvd sequels lying in its wake that aren't considered very good by most fans. So the idea of a straightforward remake is quite welcome, especially by series creator James O'Barr, who gives this new take on the material his blessing.

In a recent interview with independent blogger Sean C.W. Korsgaard, James O'Barr explains his involvement with the film, and how it is not a mere reboot but more of a 're-adaptation'.

"[W]e're not remaking the movie. We're readapting the book. My metaphor is that there is a Bela Lugosi 'Dracula' and there's a Francis Ford Coppola 'Dracula'. They use the same material, but you still got two entirely different films. This one's going to be closer to ' »

'The Crow' Creator Discusses His Change of Heart About The Remake

31 October 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It's been 25 years since James O'Barr's The Crow graphic novel debuted. The book would go on to sell over a million copies. It would also spawn a cult hit film adaptation which is now celebrating its 20th anniversary. The original film starred Brandon Lee in what would be his final performance, as he died during an unfortunate accident while filming the movie. After that film, Hollywood churned out a few more sequels- but that's where O'Barr checked out. He loathed the sequels and wanted no association with them. For the last couple of years, there's been movement on a remake- which O'Barr loathed, too.

But then something happened.

The writer, who had taken a hard and fast stance against revisiting the hallowed ground of the first film, suddenly came around. Why? In a talk with Korsgaard's Commentary, O'Barr revealed what it was that director F. Javier Gutiérrez did to win him over. »

Halloween-Appropriate Compositions

31 October 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

I used to work at a store where some of us employees liked to dress up for Halloween. One year the young woman I worked with that day dressed in her full Goth regalia (this is someone with a spiderweb tattoo), and when one customer said to her, "I love your costume," she replied, coldly and seriously, "It's not a costume." Ever since then I have thought of Halloween as the one day each year when Goths "fit in."

From whence does "Goth" come as a description of this subculture? Not from the original Goths, Germanic barbarians who sacked Rome and later founded the kingdom that eventually became Spain and Portugal. Rather, it comes from "Gothic fiction," an English literary movement (so called in reference to the architecture of castles) that dates from Horace Walpole's 1764 novel The Castle of Otranto.

Such famed literature as Bram Stoker's Dracula, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, »

The Crow Creator James O'Barr Offers More Details on New Movie

31 October 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

An in-depth interview with The Crow creator James O'Barr was recently released by Korsgaard Commentary, and it offers up some big updates on the remake that is currently in development.

A lot of fans of the original film aren't too happy with this new movie being made, but with O'Barr's involvement in bringing it to the big screen and Luke Evans playing the title role, I've kind of warmed up to the idea. One of the first things that O'Barr clarifies in the interview is that they are not remaking the first movie:

"[W]e're not remaking the movie. We're readapting the book. My metaphor is that there is a Bela Lugosi Dracula and there's a Francis Ford Coppola Dracula. They use the same material, but you still got two entirely different films. This one's going to be closer to Taxi Driver or a John Woo film, and I think there's room for both of them. »

Comic Creator James O’Barr Shares New Details on The Crow; It’s a New Adaptation of the Comic, Not a Remake of the Movie

31 October 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Should there be a remake of Alex ProyasThe Crow?  Does anyone even want one?  The film’s been in the works for years now, so we’ve been mulling over those question for quite some time, but now the man who created it all, James O’Barr, the artist behind the comic, is assuring fans this new version will do the source material justice and respect the legacy of Brandon Lee and the 1994 film as well. In fact, the rendition starring Luke Evans isn’t even a remake of Proyas’ movie; it’s a new adaptation of the comic book.  And Evans won’t be playing Eric Draven in the new film either, but rather, Eric, just like in O’Barr’s original work.  Hit the jump for more on the new The Crow. It’s still unconfirmed whether or not F. Javier Gutierrez is still on board to direct, »

The Crow remake is "re-adapting the book", says creator James O'Barr

31 October 2014 4:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The remake of The Crow will be adapted directly from the graphic novel rather than the 1994 cult film.

Comic creator James O'Barr has promised a very different take on his original book for the Luke Evans-starring movie.

"[We're] not remaking the movie," O'Barr told Korsgaard's Commentary. "We're re-adapting the book.

"My metaphor is that there is a Bela Lugosi Dracula and there's a Francis Ford Coppola Dracula. They use the same material, but you still got two entirely different films.

"This one's going to be closer to Taxi Driver or a John Woo film, and I think there's room for both of them. Part of the appeal of The Crow comics, after all, is that they can tell very different stories."

O'Barr said that the new film will stick closer to his book than the original adaptation.

"If you read the comic, Eric and Shelley never have their last names revealed, »

"Crow" Creator Approves The Reboot

"The Crow" creator James O'Barr has given an in-depth interview with Korsgaards Commentary where the topic of the upcoming cinematic reboot of the property came up. O'Barr is a consultant on the project which is aiming to be more loyal to the comics than other recent screen interpretations:

The Crow remake to start shooting next spring

27 October 2014 11:43 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It looks like it's finally happening: the new movie of The Crow will head into production in 2015.

Mooted for some time, the remake of The Crow looks like it's finally going to press ahead next year. It's a project that's had an on-off history for a few years now, and at one stage, Bradley Cooper was set to take the lead role. More recently, Tom Hiddleston was said to be in talks, and right now, it's believed that Luke Evans - last seen in Dracula Untold - is in pole position.

The new film is being overseen by producer Ed Pressman, who served similar duties on the 1994 original movie. That one, of course, starred Brandon Lee, who died during the production of the film. Sequels followed, but not really very good ones.

Pressman told The Hollywood Reporter that production on the new The Crow movie was scheduled to start "in »

'The Crow' Remake Begins Shooting Spring 2015

24 October 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

Edward R. Pressman revealed at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival that The Crow remake is the "anti-Spider-Man," while speaking about the franchise's fan base.
