^ I can see the logic though. It's like what Steven Soderbergh said about Ocean's 11 - don't remake a classic, remake a bad movie. You can only improve when you remake a poor movie, you can only do worse when you do a classic.
I think The Crow is a pretty perfect movie of its type. Now, I love Highlander, but it's a guilty pleasure movie. A great yet bad movie, a bad yet great movie. Lots and lots of fun but there is a lot of scope for improvement.
of course, he might f*ck up the Highlander remake too!
