Stephen Norrington to reinvent "The Crow"

Stephen Norrington (Blade) is signed to write and direct a reinvention of Alex Proyas' The Crow, which starred Brandon Lee in his last performance.

This will be Norrington's first film since 2003's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

What he had to say:

"Whereas Proyas' original was gloriously gothic and stylized, the new movie will be realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style".

A realistic movie about someone coming back from the dead to unleash revenge?

Stephen Norrington sucks.

Does this mean they're redoing the Eric Draven story?

Heh, I guess he finally got over the failure that was The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Last I heard, he'd been so frustrated by that movie that he'd retired from filmmaking.

He was very frustrated and last I heard he had "exiled" himself from filmmaking. That was Sean Connery's last film, too.

Re: Stephen Norrington to reinvent "The Crow"

I feel for the guy, I really do. I'm sorry he had a bad experience.

But... seriously. Do we really need this? Did we not say everything we needed to say with the first one?

And no, I haven't seen the sequels.

Re: Stephen Norrington to reinvent "The Crow"

I think the Crow is definitely a series that needs a second chance. The sequels were all lackluster. However, I hope this guy doesn't strip the Crow of its gothic elements. I don't want it to be too 'realistic'.

I guess James O'Barr, the creator of the original Crow comics that the first movie adapted, and the one who included all the gothic, mythic, and fantasy elements got it wrong. What would the creator know after all. Thank goodness for Steven Norrington.

I would love a Crow film in the style of The Spirit, or Sin City. They could literally bring the graphic novel to life now.

Grrr...hated the original. Omnipotent supernatural forces are pretty lackluster villains OR heroes 'cause they are beyond defeat. Same problem with Freddy Kruger.

Yawn.

wasnt the goth aesthetic part of what made the Crow so popular? I see many a disappointed goth girl on the horizon.
