Some Chatter on The Crow Remake

A bit more on Stephen Norrington’s proposed remake of The Crow has made its way online today, and we’ve got the goods for you to sample (and probably complain about).

Producer Ryan Kavanaugh sat down with io9 and offered the following in terms of casting and make-up:

[The make-up will be] “totally different…” he tells the site. “He’ll have makeup, but it will be different. The best way to compare it is the first Batman and Batman Begins. In terms of their look and feel and character.”

As far as casting goes …

“We’re looking. We’re in discussions…I think it’s something cool, we’re approaching it differently. It’s really a whole relaunch of the franchise, much more of a dark superhero type. We’re just relaunching it and making it with a much more present day character, someone more relatable to everybody. It will be an actor you’ve heard of, yes. We’re not ruling anything out. We’re looking at both, with the very well known and the ‘very talented but they may not be quite there yet’.”

Interesting. Stay tuned for more feathered hijinx I’m sure sooner rather than later.

    If they had half a brain they’d know that what made people relate with Brandon Lees crow what the love he had for his fiancee. That’s a basic emotion anyone can relate to. It’s apparent by their statements this is gonna be all about hollow stylistic cinematography, shallow characters, a watered down story with a dark look for the hot topic crowd, and possibly try to cater to the twilight demo too. Jesus if these asshole wanna make a a buck what the fuck is wrong with re-releasing a great flick like this into theaters??

    What an odd statement to make. “In terms of the look and feel?” The difference between Batman and Batman Begins in regards to “the look” is that the costume in Begins was more sleek and mobile and the actor was more athletic and physically gifted. So the new Crow makeup will be more sleek and mobile while the actor will be more ripped?

    • Elf

      And its hard to be more physically fit than Brandon Lee was . . .

      • Emy

        Couldn’t have said it better. Even though he did get to a “less fit” then his usual for The Crow.

        As for the makeup, in one of the first news about this remake they were talking about going back to the graphic novel, well in the graphic novel, the makeup is pretty damn close to the first movie’s makeup look.

  • Cash Bailey

    Is Norrington gonna run away from this project just because a big meanie like Sean Connery made little Stevie cry…?

    Nobody with half a functioning brain liked LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY MATTE PAINTINGS. So man up and make another movie, you fucking pansy!!

  • AngryChairr

    How can the new character be more dark than the last one? That was the entire point of the original movie. I also don’t understand how I can “relate better” to a more present day character since the first movie is kind of ambiguous as it relates to time.

    • The Woman In Black

      Sounds like typical double-talk from a suit who has no idea what the original film was like.
