When last we talked about Stephen (Blade) Norrington’s redux of The Crow, all seemed well. The film had its location, two in fact, New Mexico and Detroit, and everyone was gaga over Norrington’s script. Now? Not so much.
According to The Wrap iconic musician and acclaimed screenwriter Nick Cave has come on to rewrite the script.
Hiring Cave to rewrite Norrington’s script is a bold move, but it may prove to be worth it in the long run, as Cave may be the perfect choice to help resurrect the fading franchise.
He made his screenwriting debut with John Hillcoat’s 1988 prison drama “Ghosts … of the Civil Dead,” but what really has this lifelong “Crow” fan excited is Cave’s impressive work on Hillcoat’s gritty Australian Western “The Proposition,” which was awesome.
Hmmm … sounds like this bird may not be as ready to take flight as we once thought. More soon.
