Crow Creator James O'Barr Signs on for The Crow Remake; Movie Headed to San Diego Comic-ConFinally some good news has flown in for Relativity Media’s redux of the classic tale of ghostly revenge known as The Crow! Creator James O’Barr has signed on to the project, which is heading to Comic-Con!

Variety reports that O’Barr, creator of the original graphic novel, has come on board as a consultant on the upcoming reboot of the film. Luke Evans is starring with F. Javier Gutierrez directing the adaptation written by Cliff Dorfman. Shooting is set to begin in early 2014.

Relativity also announced that O’Barr and Gutierrez are scheduled to appear at Comic-Con in San Diego to discuss the film and meet with fans.

“It is important for ‘Crow’ fans to understand that Relativity, Javier, Luke, and the entire team are working on a new adaptation of the book itself,” said O’Barr in a statement. “I believe that this movie will stand alongside Brandon and his film as a valid work of art, and I look forward to collaborating on the project.

The film is being produced by Ed Pressman, Kevin Misher, Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, and Jeff Most. Exec producers include Relativity’s president Tucker Tooley, The Weinstein Co.’s Harvey and Bob Weinstein, and Farah Films’ Dan Farah.

Look for more soon.

    The graphic novel is still untapped for an adaptation, but knowing the studios they’re just going to remake Brandon Lee’s movie rather than take heavily from the graphic novel. Much as I adore the movie, it’s only ten percent faithful to the source material.

      Speaking of remakes, what did you think of the horribly written and poorly directed TOTAL RECALL remake?

      Still haven’t seen a review of that movie from you ever since you were totally convinced it would trump the original in every conceivable way. Guess all that hardcore sci-fi porn “reviewing” takes up a lot of time when you’re not writing painfully cliche Walking Dead fan fiction.

    Holy shit, someone got him to work with Pressman again? Poor J, must be hard up for money. 🙁
