The Crow Reboot

The Crow Reboot

Edward Pressman spoke to MTV about the current status of the reboot for the Crow franchise. According to Pressman the screenplay for the reboot is now finished, casting is progressing and the plan is to begin filming during 2010.

Pressmen then went on to explain that the films settings will still draw from the gritty elements of the original film however the setting will diverge from what has been previously explored.

The original Crow film starring Brandon Lee was released in 1994 with a box office gross of approximately $94 million worldwide. The film spawned several sequels as well as a TV series which was cancelled after one season.

I am a fan of the original Crow film though haven’t watched it in some time, a reboot to the series is probably the best way to continue the franchise at this stage though with details so slim it’s hard to ascertain how this one might work out.

What do you think? Are you a fan of the original or its sequels? Who would you like to see cast as in the main role for a reboot? Let us know in the comments section below.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
