F. Javier Gutierrez Following the Graphic Novel Closely for Crow Reboot
There’s already a great deal of hoopla surrounding the long talked about remake of The Crow… the project has already been hampered by legal woes, negative story reactions, etc. Hopefully this latest tidbit of news will quell said negativity.
In a recent interview with Total Film, creator James O’Barr shed some light on what to expect from F. Javier Gutiérrez’s upcoming film. According to O’Barr, Gutiérrez’s vision will be even more faithful to the 1989 comic.
“It was [Javier’s] idea to go right back to the source material and essentially shoot it shot-for-shot, as in the book, but with a little more backstory for some of the characters,” O’Barr told them. “He wants to be as faithful as possible, even down to all the visual metaphors of trains and horses.”
O’Barr, who is active in this new version of his book, talks on seeing Luke Evans in make-up: “The producers showed me some shots of [Luke Evans] in the make-up, and the tragedy really shows on his face, especially his eyes. He has a really commanding screen presence.”
All that being said… can we finally start getting a bit excited?
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.
