Original Crow Director Wants the Remake Shut Down

Original Crow Director Wants the Remake Shut Down
After years of delays, the long-awaited reboot of The Crow is finally moving forward, with production starting in early 2018. Jason Momoa is set to star as Eric Draven, under the direction of Corin Hardy, but filmmaker Alex Proyas, who directed the original 1994 adaptation of The Crow, doesn't think this should happen. The filmmaker recently took to social media to deliver an impassioned plea about why he thinks this Crow reboot should be shut down, since he thinks The Crow is still Brandon Lee's movie.

"I was privileged to know Brandon Lee, he was a young, immensely gifted actor with a great sense of humour and a bright future ahead of him. I was also privileged to have been able to call him a friend. Our working relationship as actor/director went beyond mere collaboration. We crafted a movie together which has touched many people. I did not take a

What did you see this weekend? I went to The Witch again and it was just as good as I remembered from Tiff.

But let's go from the great to the terrible. When was the last time you chanced upon something truly awful? I ask this because last night, bone tired, and flipping channels I came across The Crow: City of Angels (1996) in its opening scene. I had never seen it and for a minute I mistook it for The Crow: Salvation (2000) which I have also never seen and thought to myself  'Self, hey, watch a few minutes since Kiki Dunst is in this' About 20 minutes later, I turned it off, jaw long since acclimated to floor. Every single scene was worst than the last. It was truly incompetent and

Berlinale ’16: Alone In Berlin review

Alone In Berlin review: Some superb acting from its main players, but the film is let down by its overall tone its under-cooked ending.

Alone In Berlin review by Paul Heath, Berlin Film festival, 2016. Alone In Berlin is the latest directorial effort from Vincent Perez, the actor-turned-director who most people will know as the man that replaced Brandon Lee in Tim Pope’s follow-up to The Crow, The Crow: City Of Angels. The Spanish-German filmmaker has come a long way since then with this, his sixth directorial effort.

Alone In Berlin tells the true story from 1940 Berlin where Anna and Otto Quangel (Emma Thompson and Brendan Gleeson) have just learned that their only son has been killed on the front line during World War II. The two previously supported Hitler’s politics, but now, after the regime has taken control following victory against the French, they realise that his promises are nothing but lies.

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned,

Iggy Pop rescues an injured stray cat while shooting a movie

Iggy Pop rescues an injured stray cat while shooting a movie
Iggy Pop reportedly rescued an injured stray cat when shooting an upcoming movie in Ibiza.

The Stooges frontman plays an ailing rock 'n' roll legend in Toby Tobias's Blood Orange, which shot last year.

"The film really hinges on his character," Tobias told Metro of Iggy's lead role, describing him as "a revelation".

"He's the man with the plan and his combination of deep cool and natural charisma really shines through on camera."

He added: "He was such a gentleman and a consummate professional with a deadly sense of humour.

"He had a huge amount to take on board, both physically and mentally, and yet he always had time for every member of the crew.

"He even found the time to rescue an injured stray cat!"

Iggy has had previous acting experience, featuring in horror sequel The Crow: City of Angels, Jim Jarmusch's Coffee and Cigarettes and Tank Girl,

Neil Gaiman Agrees: Tom Hiddleston Would Make A Great 'Sandman'

Update: Neil Gaiman has tweeted that it was a joke. Harrumph!

It's not true. It was a joke in an interview I'm afraid Rt @PickleAM: Please oh please let it be true that @twhiddleston will play Morpheus!

- Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) December 17, 2014

There's been talk of a big-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" for years, but it seems that things are finally kicking into gear. David S. Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are working on a script, with Jgl set to direct and star, but it seems that the prolific author has his own suggestions about who should play Morpheus.

Gaiman told, "It's a funny thing with Morpheus. Again, it's that thing where you look around and think, 'Yes, this person would be a fantastic person', and then time passes. There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine.

Iggy Pop and Dario Argento Crowdfunding Terrifying 'Sandman' Movie

Iggy Pop and Dario Argento Crowdfunding Terrifying 'Sandman' Movie
Filmmaker Dario Argento and singer Iggy Pop have thrown their support behind a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for a movie adaptation of the terrifying, 19th century German depiction of the Sandman.

Not to be confused with author Neil Gaiman's celebrated comic book series of the same name, Argento's vision of the Sandman comes from author E.T.A. Hoffmann's 1816 short story Der Sandmann, in which the titular villain steals the eyes of sleep-deprived children and feeds them to his own children...on the moon.

Argento, the director of artistic horror classics like Suspiria,

What happened to the original Power Rangers cast? How they look now

What happened to the original Power Rangers cast? How they look now
The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will unite once again to do battle with a series of weird and wonderful monsters. Though the series has been on air since 1993, this new incarnation will be a big budget reboot from the team behind Twilight, The Hunger Games and Divergent.


But what became of the original (and best!) Power Rangers cast we worshipped in the early '90s? Digital Spy finds out what happened to the all-action sextet below.

David Yost (Blue Ranger/Billy Cranston)

David Yost landed the role of Blue Ranger Billy Cranston just three months after moving to California in 1993. In an intriguing piece of trivia, his character was named after Bryan Cranston, who at the time was doing voice work for Power Rangers producer Haim Saban.

Yost appeared in more than 200 episodes of Power Rangers, making him the only Ranger to appear in every episode of the original series.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Linked To Neil Gaiman’s ‘Sandman’ Comic Adaptation

Good news for Neil Gaiman fans – Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been linked to a big screen adaptation of cult Vertigo (an imprint of DC) comic Sandman. But don’t get too excited quite yet. So far it’s just a rumour.

If the project goes ahead, Gordon-Levitt could be playing Dream (also known as Morpheus), master of stories and dreams. Gaiman’s series ran for 75 issues from 1989 and explored a dream-like world influenced by mythology.

Film writer, director and comic book fan David S. Goyer is rumoured to have pitched the project to Warner Bros., although it’s not yet clear whether he’d direct. Goyer is no stranger to big screen adaptations of comics; he worked as writer for a number of comic inspired films including Nolan’s Batman trilogy, Man Of Steel, Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance and The Crow: City Of Angels. Gordon-Levitt also starred in The Dark Knight Rises.

Man Of Steel Writer Wants To Adapt Neil Gaiman's Sandman

David S. Goyer knows a thing or two about adapt comic books. To date he's penned screenplays for The Crow: City of Angels, which was inspired by James O'Barr's Crow comics, three Blade movies, Batman Begins and the summer hit Man of Steel With the last of those pulling in an incredible $662 million worldwide, Warner Bros. is happy to keep Goyer around, and currently has him attached to Batman vs. Superman and presumably the eventual Justice League movie. So now is a pretty sweet time for Goyer to push for his own passion project, and word has it that's exactly what's he is up to. Badass Digest reports Goyer has pitched an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's signature comic Sandman to Warner Bros - but warns this could-be project is in the very earliest of stages. Essentially now it's just talk. Their source says that notable comic book writer

Thn Attends David S Goyer’s BAFTA Screenwriters Lecture

Last night, Thn had the privilege of attending The BAFTA & BFI Screenwriters’ Lecture Series with David S Goyer, co-writer of The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man Of Steel and much more.

The series of talks provide a fascinating insight into the processes of some diverse and prominent voices in writing, but if any are more charming than Goyer, I’ll be impressed. He began his lecture by mentioning how colossal blockbusters such as his are practically destroying cinema and that he was working for the enemy. A glib confession to get us on his side, and it worked.

Highlights included:

Latido Closes Early Sales on ‘Puppy Love’ (Exclusive)

Latido Closes Early Sales on ‘Puppy Love’ (Exclusive)
San Sebastian – Seeing payback from its push into acquiring European movie sales rights, Madrid-based Latido Fims has initiated international deals on “Puppy Love,” which world premieres Saturday at San Sebastian.

Peter Pan Pictures has tied down rights to South Korea, Sundream Motion Pictures those to Hong Kong.

Film Coopi distributes in Switzerland, Dreamtouch on Belgium.

Promoted at San Sebastian by Wallonie Bruxelles Images, “Puppy Love” is the latest film from Entre Chien et Loup, one of Belgium’s pre-eminent production houses, whose recent co-production credits include Ari Folman’s “The Congress,” with Robin Wright, and first-time Yuval Adler’s well-reviewed thriller “Bethlehem,” a Venice, Telluride and Toronto player which won Venice Days Fedora Prize earlier this month.

Marking another young director’s debut, that of actress-director Delphine Lehericey, and co-starring Vincent Perez (“The Crow: City of Angels”), “Puppy Love’s” title is ironical. A coming-of-age tale, and then some, it turns on a 14-year-old,

Luke Evans starring in 'The Crow' reboot as Eric Draven

  • Pop2it
Luke Evans is apparently destined to star in comic book reboot "The Crow." Relativity Media has delayed the start of production to early next year to accommodate Evans' schedule.

The Welsh native plays Bard the Bowman in "The Hobbit" trilogy, the villain in the upcoming "Fast & Furious 6" and will soon play Dracula in origin story "Dracula: Year Zero." While all of those commitments have raised Evans' star status, they also seemed to place him out of the running for "Crow." But the studio is apparently so smitten with the star that they're willing to give the film a later start.

As Deadline reports, several other actors -- including "Avengers" villain Tom Hiddleston and "True Blood" heartthrob Alexander Skarsgard -- were rumored to be close to landing the role. But Evans was ultimately the guy.

James O'Barr's comic book series "The Crow" launched in the late '80s and was

Flickering Myth's Greatest Comic Book Movies: #24 - The Crow (1994)

Throughout April, we're counting down to the release of Marvel's Iron Man 3 with our picks for the Greatest Comic Book Movies of All Time; here's #24...

The Crow, 1994.

Directed by Alex Proyas.

Starring Brandon Lee, Rochelle Davis, Ernie Hudson, Michael Wincott, Bai Ling, Sofia Shinas, Anna Levine, David Patrick Kelly, Laurence Mason, Michael Massee and Angel David.

Based upon James O'Barr's cult underground series, originally published by Caliber Comics in 1989, The Crow stars Brandon Lee as Eric Draven, a musician brought back from the dead to avenge his and his fiancée's murder at the hands of a gang of local thugs.

Tragically, The Crow would prove to be Lee's final movie, the actor dying after sustaining an accidental gunshot wound on set during the filming of a stunt sequence. More than a year after Lee's death, The Crow arrived in cinemas and was a world-wide box office success, pulling

Top 10 Most Disappointing Movies (That Should Have Been Great!)

Which promising movies fell shortest of expectations?

When we first heard the news that J.J. Abrams had been hired by Disney to continue the adventures of Luke Skywalker and company as the director of Star Wars: Episode VII, we were almost beside ourselves with enthusiasm. After all, as the director of Star Trek (2009), Abrams proved that he could revitalize a classic sci-fi franchise while remaining true to its core concepts and respectful of its legacy. Added to that the fact that Abrams will be shooting from a script written by Academy Award-winner Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine) and Episode VII is bound to be the greatest Star Wars movie since Return of the Jedi, right? We'll see. We're keeping our fingers crossed, but gearing down from "enthusiastic" to "hopefully optimistic."

Studios don't set out to make bad movies, yet they churn them out each and every year. Sure, most bad

David S. Goyer talks Man of Steel

Now that the curtain has fallen on the Dark Knight trilogy with the release of The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros. is pinning its hopes for superhero movie success firmly on the shoulders of the the Last Son of Krypton courtesy of director Zack Snyder's (Watchmen) upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel.

Set to arrive next summer, Man of Steel is produced by Nolan from a script by comic book movie veteran David S. Goyer, whose previous credits range from good (Blade, Blade II, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises) to bad (Blade: Trinity) and just downright ugly (The Crow: City of Angels, Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance). Despite this somewhat mixed track record, Superman fans will be hoping that Goyer picks up where he and Nolan left off on the Dark Knight trilogy with Man of Steel,

Producer Edward Pressman Updates us on The Reinvention of The Crow

I really wish producer Edward Pressman would let Eric Draven and the Crow die. Pressman already got a hit film out of it in Alex Proyas’ 1994 adaptation with Brandon Lee, and he even managed a theatrical sequel with “The Crow: City of Angels”. Four movies (including two abysmal direct-to-dvd sequels) and a TV series later, and Pressman is still pressing on (ahem) with a fifth/rebooted installment. Pressman, who has just acquired the film rights to the comic book “Feeding Ground”, was recently asked about the status of “The Crow” reboot, about which he had this to say: The original 1994 “Crow” film holds a special place in my heart. The current film is a “reinvention” of James O’Barr’s graphic novel for the 21st Century. We’re thrilled to have teamed with director Javier Gutierrez and screenwriter Jesse Wigutow on this story, which remains true to the core of

DVD Release: Arn: The Knight Templar: Complete Series

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: June 5, 2012

Price: DVD $29.98, Blu-ray $34.98

Studio: Entertainment One

There are battles a'plenty in the medieval action-adventure TV series Arn: The Knight Templar

Costing approximately $35 million to produce, the 2007 television mini-series Arn: The Knight Templar is the most lavish production ever undertaken in Scandinavia.

Set in Sweden and the Middle East in the 12th Century, the medieval action-adventure show tells the saga of Arn Magnusson (Joakim Nätterqvist), the son of a high-ranking Swedish nobleman, who is educated in a monastery and sent to the Holy Land as a knight templar to do penance for a forbidden love. Needless to say, there are a helluva lot of battles, betrayals, love affairs, intrigue and acts of gallantry that go down over the course of Arn’s journey.

Directed by Peter Flinth and based on the historical novels of Jan Guillou, the two-hour-plus Arn also stars Stellan Skarsgard (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
