THE CROW: In the original comic, a man brutally murdered comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée's murder.

"It's not a remake it's literally a relaunch of the franchise," Producer Ryan Kavanaugh reveals to io9 during an interview for his forthcoming film Brothers.

He adds that the make-up will also be very different and uses Batman as a comparison.

"No, totally different... He'll have makeup, but it will be different. The best way to compare it is the first 'Batman' and 'Batman Begins'. In terms of their look and feel and character."

While the project has yet to be greenlit, things are progressing well.

"Yeah we're still tweaking it, but it's finished," he says of the script. "We're very excited about it. The Crow is definitely going to happen, we're just getting all the pieces together right now. It's not officially greenlit, but it's going to happen... I think in a couple months we could have the package together for sure."

Mania continues to get update after update from director Stephen Norrington about his forthcoming redo of James O'Barr's The Crow, which we can confirm is really close to setting up shop for a shoot this summer. "Part of the new story is set in Detroit and we've been discussing the logistics of shooting on location," Norrington told the site. The comic was created by Michigan native James O'Barr who set the original comics series in the Motor City. That setting remained in Alex Proyas' film version, which very effectively used the city's run-down reputation and the citizens' notorious annual tradition of burning derelict houses down on Devil's Night as a backdrop for the film. Nothing is a lock right now as there are still many factors that can change over the next few months.

Did anyone else see the Fan-made movie of the CROW?

I have it on my harddrive somewhere....

A much better movie (if not better made) with a much closer similarity to the comics...

Australian musician and acclaimed screenwriter Nick Cave ("The Proposition") has come onboard to rewrite the script for "The Crow" reboot at Relativity Media reports The Wrap.

Director Stephen Norrington ("Blade") had penned the previous draft which swapped the action between the deserts of the U.S. south-west and a more urban location.

The news comes shortly after it was revealed at Comic Con by Guillermo Del Toro that Cave will be doing music for a darker stop-motion film based on "Pinocchio" which Gris Grimly is co-directing.

Relativity has just announced that Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 WEEKS LATER) has signed on to direct the reboot of James O'Barr's THE CROWwith a production start eyed for this fall.

According to the press release, Fresnadillo will collaborate with a writer on the screenplay, that name expected to be announced shortly. What's more, the reboot is confirmed to focus on the character of Eric Draven (infamously played in the 1994 film by Brandon Lee, who was killed on-set).

“Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is an incredibly talented and imaginative filmmaker,” says Executive Producer Tucker Tooley, "We are thrilled to have him at the helm and are excited to work with both Pressman and Apaches on what we all believe will be a compelling and innovative reimagining of THE CROW.”

"The original Crow was groundbreaking cinema," adds prodcuer Edward R. Pressman, "Its gothic visual and musical ideas influenced a generation and cinema itself. With Juan Carlos, we have every confidence that his new Crow will have a similar impact on the contemporary audience."

Bradley Cooper is in early discussions to star in Relativity Media's remake of The Crow, which is being directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

The original 1993 movie The Crow starred Brandon Lee as Eric Draven, a rock star who is murdered along with his girlfriend, the night before their wedding. One year later, a mysterious crow resurrects Draven to seek vengeance on those responsible for his death.

The project seems to be a priority for Relativity Media, having just locked in director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo last week. However, Relativity Media representatives would not comment on the news, although insiders indicate he wants to take on the role.

Edward R. Pressman, Jeff Most, Ryan Kavanaugh, Enrique Lopez Lavigne, and Belen Atienza will produce The Crow. A new writer is also being sought to develop the remake.

The producers hope to get production started on The Crow remake by this fall.

I guess it's no Nick, then. It may have been watchable, but now it's back to useless.

One of the biggest problems in my opinion is that there is WAY too much planning for these films anymore. The Epic Mentality that had it's first popularity in the Late 70's/Early 80's has seriously killed off a hell of a lot of major studio Cinema, kind of like the way Las Vegas got turned into a soulless parade or how many Downtown areas have turned family-friendly. A lot of what happened in film for the majors through the last decade has made even the epic Close Encounters look like a quick shot B-Flick now when it comes to production.

This could have been made in quick time from 09-10, made a hit or DTV, and we would have been getting angry about the actual film by now. Laugh

It may be a fantasy, and the name still has a bank appeal, but it's obvious that they're too lazy to even think about something called a sequel...oh well, that's the ADD Suit Generation I guess.

One of the better Joy Division covers in my view. One of the main reasons people re-discovered them in the 90's (It was a hit on the local "Alternative" station then).
