It’s been almost a year since we last heard a peep about the inevitable remake of The Crow, and the lack of updates seemed to spell the end of the production. Not so, says the film’s producer, who just provided an update. Read on!
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with producer Ed Pressman (The Crow, American Psycho) at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, and he revealed that the production is eying a 2015 start. Pressman told the site that he hopes the reboot will begin shooting “in the spring.”
“It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago,” he said, “but the generation today doesn’t even know The Crow.”
Last we heard, Luke Evans is the man who will be taking over the role Brandon Lee made famous, portraying the titular character that Pressman describes as “the anti-Spider-Man.” However, Pressman noted that nothing regarding casting is confirmed at this stage.
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. F. Javier Gutiérrez is at the helm.
Look for more soon.
