'The Crow' Remake Stalls Following Relativity Bankruptcy

16 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Here we go again! Just as production on the long-delayed Fletch Remake beings to heat up, The Crow beings to cool down. Way down. Even though things have been looking better for the reboot, it has been troubled ever since it was announced. So much so, some believe it is cursed, a thought that goes all the way back to the original 1994 The Crow, which saw star Brandon Lee shot and killed on set. Creator of the comic book James O'Barr claims that $20 million has already been spent trying to get this new iteration off the ground. And while claims were made that the production would still shoot in the fall, despite Relativity filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy, it seems that initial report was a little premature.

The Crow has gone through a number or directors and writers over the last decade. While Director Corin Hardy is still attached, leading man Jack Huston bailed earlier this year, »

11 Most Shocking Movie Scenes of 2015

18 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Wow! Have we seen some unexpected things at the cinema this year! Shocking movie scenes are the things of legend. When they happen, they can make the film a "must see" or a "must leave." Quite simply, they are the thing that oftentimes get us to fork over our hard earned loot. And other times, they have us closing our eyes, squirming in our chair, or reaching for that empty popcorn bag to use as a vomit catcher!

Despite how many times we see a shocking scene, we never grow tired of them. Sure, not every movie can be The Crying Game or The Sixth Sense, but many times we will settle for merely a 'good' shock simply because so few films have them. As any discerning movie watcher will tell you, a shocking moment in and of itself isn't enough to make a movie good. However, if it works »

Contest: Win a Copy of Midian Unmade: Tales Of Clive Barker’S Nightbreed

31 July 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Now available from Tor Books is the Nightbreed sequel anthology, Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker's Nightbreed, featuring an introduction by Barker and short stories from a wide range of great writers. We've been provided with one copy of Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker's Nightbreed to give away.

"Clive Barker's Nightbreed has been controversial since the moment it was released in a version edited by the studio and roundly condemned by Barker, who wrote and directed the movie. A virtually instant cult film based on Barker's novella Cabal, it was nominated for three Saturn Awards and won several prizes at European film festivals.

Midian Unmade tells the stories of the Nightbreed after the fall of their city, Midian. Driven from their homes, their friends and family members slain before their eyes, the monsters become a mostly-hidden diaspora. Some are hunted; others, hunters. Some seek refuge. Others want revenge.

'The Crow' remake "suspended"

31 July 2015 2:31 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Pinewood Cardiff shoot for Relativity-backed remake put on ice.

Production on the remake of cult classic The Crow has been “suspended”, according to multiple sources close to the film.

Pre-production on the multi-million pound feature, which was due to be the first shot at Pinewood Cardiff, has halted, with crew having vacated the studio this week following months of preparation.

While the latest delay to the anticipated film correlates with the financial woes of the film’s Us backer Relativity Media, a source close to Relativity told ScreenDaily that the company still “intends to move forward with producing and releasing The Crow”.

Staff at Pinewood Cardiff are understood to be awaiting instruction as to the timetable for the troubled remake, which lost Jack Huston as its lead in June, and Luke Evans prior to that.

Replacement cast has yet to be announced on the action-fantasy, set to be directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow), but crew working »

The Crow loses yet another leading man

15 June 2015 10:44 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

And another one's gone: this time, Jack Huston has dropped out of the lead role in The Crow reboot...

Whoever's in charge of casting on the new movie of The Crow has, we'd suspect, had easier jobs. When the project was first mooted, there was talk of Bradley Cooper taking on the lead role (made famous on the big screen, of course, by the late Brandon Lee). But then when Cooper ultimately passed (not that he ever committed, to be fair), Luke Evans signed up to take the part on. Evans hinted he was quitting The Crow at the end of last year, and did indeed walk away from the movie. And with actors such as Tom Hiddleston linked, it was eventually Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston who agreed to take the lead role on.

Fast forward to now, and The Crow needs a new Crow again. Huston has exited the project, »

The Crow reboot is without a leading man again as Jack Huston drops out

15 June 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Crow reboot is searching for a new actor to play Eric Draven because Jack Huston has dropped out.

Huston was the latest in a long series of Hollywood stars in line to play undead vigilante Eric Draven, a role famously played by Brandon Lee in a 1994 cult classic.

Boardwalk Empire star Huston was confirmed for the role earlier this year, but TheWrap reports that scheduling conflicts will prevent him from remaining on board.

Film studio Relativity is now reportedly courting Unbroken star Jack O'Connell and Mad Max: Fury Road's Nicholas Hoult to step in as Eric Draven.

Others currently being eyed by the studio include Forest Whitaker as Draven's cop ally Sergeant Albrecht and Andrea Riseborough as the villainous Top Dollar.

Huston's departure from director Corin Hardy's The Crow is merely the latest cast shake-up for the long-rumoured reboot.

Luke Evans was officially attached to play Eric »

Andrea Riseborough To Play Villain Top Dollar In 'The Crow'

21 May 2015 8:07 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After a stint in development hell, "The Crow" remake is now flying, for better or worse. Jack Huston is locked down in the lead role, and the movie's big baddie has been found, and it's being given an interesting gender switch. Deadline reports that Andrea Riseborough is in talks to play Top Dollar. A dude in the comics, and played by Michael Wincott in the 1994 movie, the character is the gang boss who murders Eric Draven and his girlfriend. When Draven returns in full goth as The Crow, he sets his sights on Top Dollar seeking justice and revenge. And I have to say, as disinterested in this movie as I am, the little twist on the villain is nifty. Corin Hardy ("The Woods") is directing the film which will land in cinemas probably next year sometime. Thoughts? Does this news make you slightly more optimistic? Hit up the comments section and let us know. »

Andrea Riseborough will play villain Top Dollar in The Crow remake

21 May 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Andrea Riseborough is the latest star to join The Crow remake.

The Birdman actress will play villain Top Dollar in the adaptation of James O'Barr's comic book, Deadline reports.

The role was played by Michael Wincott in the 1994 film, but the character will be rewritten as a woman in the updated version.

She will star alongside Jack Huston, who recently replaced Luke Evans as protagonist Eric Draven.

Corin Hardy is on board to direct the film, which centres around a murdered man who comes back to life to exact his revenge.

The remake will be adapted directly from the graphic novel rather than the 1994 cult film, which starred Brandon Lee. »

The Crow Remake: Andrea Riseborough May Play Villain Top Dollar

21 May 2015 6:48 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

I didn't really have much interest in a remake of The Crow to begin with, and watching so many directors and actors join and leave the project certainly didn’t help. However, Luke Evans was attached to star for so long that it was hard not to warm up to the idea of him playing Eric Draven. But, of course, then he dropped out in January and we got Jack Huston instead. I'm sure he scored the role for a reason, but as someone who didn’t watch him in Boardwalk Empire or pay much attention to his big screen work, he certainly doesn't spark the hype that Evans, Alexander Skarsgard, Tom Hiddleston, James McAvoy, etc. did. But, a new casting report just surfaced for a different role and it's actually got me interested in the project again.

Pressman, Kevin Misher, Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, and Jeff Waxman. James O’Barr is also on board as a consultant. The Crow will take flight in 2016. »

Andrea Riseborough To Face ‘The Crow’

21 May 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The reboot of comic book movie franchise The Crow just got a lot more interesting. As if the presence of Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston as the title avenger wasn’t enough to thrill you, then how about the actress producers are pursuing as the villain? If they have their way, brilliant character actress Andrea Riseborough will take the role of crime lord and nemesis Top Dollar.

Brit Riseborough has built a reputation as a chameleonic talent over the years, with performances in Brighton Rock, Shadow Dancer and Made In Dagenham as distinctive from each other as it’s possible to get. Should she agree to sign on, she’ll be playing a part last seen in the guise of Michael Wincott in the 1994 original. Seems screenwriter Claire Wilson and director Corin Hardy are reworking the material in more ways than one.

Based on James O’Barr’s graphic novel, »
