The Crow Remake Finds a Place to Perch





Some location news for Stephen Norrington's upcoming re-imagining of The Crow has come in, and things continue to be shaping up nicely. So where is this latest vengeful spirit going to be plying his violence-filled craft?

The fine folks over at Mania nailed down this latest update from director Norrington: "Part of the new story is set in Detroit, and we've been discussing the logistics of shooting on location."

So there you have it, boys and girls; The Crow is heading back to the Motor City to hopefully engage in a Devil's Night to end them all!

Stay tuned for more feathered hijinx hopefully sooner rather than later.

NEXT STORY

Yeah, the sequels aren't good. "Salvation" is watchable, but still? Not worth seeking out. I wrote a piece on the movies in case you're interested: http://www.cinema-crazed.com/r-z/victims1.htm

You're probably not interested, but who cares? I wanted to show it off because I'm a whore.

I didn't mind Salvation. I appreciated the story, and did feel something briefly(though miniscule) for the characters involved. Actually, if I had to watch City of Angels or Salvation again I'd pick Salvation.

Agreed FireRam. Unlike the other sequels, "Salvation" tries to be different. And Jodi Lynne O'Keefe's murder was pretty disturbing to watch.

It tried to be different, and I appreciated that.(Salvation.) It seemed as though it tried to let you relate, or feel something for the characters involved and their loss. Especially him getting blamed for the murder while he himself was hurting. And I appreciate that. City of Angels tried (and if it did it failed miserably) none of that. I felt nothing watching that movie. I didn't even care he and his son were killed. I'm not that desensitized geez. They just made it to make it and it showed. I remember I was SO disappointed after loving the originl crow so much.

I was so amped for City of Angels and then so damn disappointed. "Salvation" went for a fresh beat and it comes off like a horror movie at times. And even him being able to turn in to a crow while cheesy is at least different.

Vincent Perez was so cartoonish as the crow. It just took me out of the movie so many times.

I thought he was stale. If that makes sense.

It makes perfect sense. The man can't act and he has a thick french accent so the script demands he doesn't speak too much.

Vincent Perez is not a terrible actor. He is actually quite great, when he acts in French.

And I will sound like a broken record, but he did City of Angels phonetically, his English was not any good at that point. His English is much better now, but I do prefer him in his French movies.

Emy I stand corrected then. That's part of why the movie sucked, they really don't demand a lot of dialogue from him so we never got a feel for his character at all.

In spite of absolutely adoring "The Crow" I can see why they'd reboot the franchise since the last one starred Tara Reid, Eddie Furlong and David Boreanaz. Sheesh. I'm open to a new franchise as long as they cast someone as good as Lee.

That movie is in my DOES NOT EXIST AND WAS NEVER MADE box. The other two movies in that box are Zombies H and H2.

Yeah I prefer to think of it as not existing too. It's the epitome of awful.

The crow was a great movie. Now city of dog crap was one of the lamest attempts to cash in on a dead man I've ever seen. I remember it well, Me and my bestfriend had went to see it on opening night it was one of the first movies I had seen in theaters I hated. We walked out before it even ended and both tried so hard to find a reason why it was even slightly good. To this day I can't think of a reason that movie should ever be watched. I didn't bother to watch Salvation until 3-4 years after it came out and I have to say I liked it. IT was a bit sad the budget wasn't there for it...if they would have put half the money in Salvation as they did with CoA it would have probably been as good as the orginal. As for the 4th one....For the love OF GOD if you haven't watched it don't. It was painful. Painful can't even explain how bad that movie was. It was like watching someone trying to film a serious movie on a family camcorder and thinking that 30 bucks worth of effects was Emmy worthy. IT was bad. BAD,BAD,BAD.

As for this remake. Don't get me wrong they don't need to remake the orginal but if they did I would hope they stuck closer to the sorce material of the book. 80's tone and all. But imho they should just let the crow series die.
