'The Crow' Director: Don't Call it a 'Remake'

Shock 'Til You Drop Relativity via Shock Till You Drop

"The Crow," a new revival of the '94 comic adaptation — which is perhaps known more for the tragic accident that took the life of star Brandon Lee than for the accomplished, nearly velveteen visuals of Australian director Alex Proyas — has been in the works for a very long time.

It's seen various filmmakers and stars (including, at one point, Bradley Cooper) come and go, but now seems to be inching towards the big screen with talent firmly in place in front of the camera as well as behind, with Javier Gutierrez, director of 2008's "Before the Fall," at the helm, and Luke Evans in the title role. What's more is the original comic book's creator, James O'Barr has signed on as a "creative consultant," which is a huge step for the film's legitimacy.

At Comic-Con, where the first gnarly concept poster for the film was shelled out, Shock Till You Drop chatted up both O'Barr and Gutierrez, and the two made it very clear that this isn't some cheapo remake. Instead, the pair wants the movie world to consider this a "new interpretation" of the source material, got it? Get More »

Luke Evans Is 'The Crow'

Hey guys, remember a couple weeks ago when we mentioned that Tom Hiddleston was in talks to play the lead in the upcoming reboot of "The Crow?" Considering Hiddleston is still hot as hell thanks to his turn as Loki in the record smashing box office blockbuster "The Avengers," and that he was aggressively pursuing the role, it seemed like pretty much a done deal, right?

Well, not so much apparently, because according to Deadline, the folks at Relativity Media have decided to pass on Hiddleston after all and instead are planning to sign up Luke Evans to play the undead goth superhero. Get More »

Behold Bradley Cooper-Starring 'The Crow' That Might Have Been

The Crow
Shock Till You Drop

Oh, Eric Draven ... once again, we hardly knew ye.

Things aren't looking good for the planned reboot of "The Crow." It looked like all systems were go for a while, but the property is now wallowing in a lawsuit and production has stalled. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo ("28 Weeks Later") is no longer attached to direct, and Bradley Cooper will no longer be playing the lead role of slain rock musician and undead avenger, Eric Draven.

Bradley Cooper Flies From 'The Crow'

Bradley Cooper is apparently going to let bygones be bygones, as he won't be rising from the dead on a mission of vengeance after all.

We had a feeling something was going to have to be dropped from Cooper's crazy schedule just to make time for him to get a few hours of sleep every night for the next year, and it looks like that something is "The Crow," according to Heat Vision.

Cooper will no longer be starring as Eric Draven, the slain musician who comes back from the grave one year after his death to avenge the double murder of himself and his fiancee. Relativity Media is already putting the feelers out for possible replacements, which include Mark Wahlberg, who was vaguely attached to the project earlier this year, and Channing Tatum.  Get More »

'28 Weeks Later' Director To Resurrect 'The Crow'

Eric Draven lives again.

"The Crow" has been a franchise that Hollywood has inexplicably rendered an utter and colossal failure. The original 1994 film starring the late, great Brandon Lee and directed by Alex Proyas was a genre masterpiece; a dark gothic fairy tale of tragic romance and violent revenge, with Lee as a slain musician brought back to life one year after he and his fiance are murdered to "put the wrong things right."
