The producer in question is called Ed Pressman and he revealed this news during an interview with IndieWire.
Ed didn’t have too much to share about the upcoming The Crow reboot.
However, he did reveal that The Crow in this reboot will be an “anti-superhero” and Ed also confirmed that a director and cast will be announced “in the near future”.
This all comes after they tried to bring the franchise back, but it all fell flat on its face.
Jason Momoa had been announced as the reboot’s lead and it was going to be directed by The Hallow and The Nun director, Corin Hardy.
However, that project was eventually cancelled.
It now sounds as though this new The Crow reboot could be some sort of remake of the original movie.
The first The Crow film starred Brandon Lee, who very tragically died on the film’s set.
The Crow reboot seems to be still happening
The idea of this upcoming reboot movie being basically a remake won’t be good news for the film’s original director, Alex Proyas.
He actually revealed this during an interview on the It’s Hughezy, Hello! podcast:
Brandon Lee made that movie what it is. He made that movie, he made that character. That character was not taken from a comic book, that was Brandon. And Brandon Lee died making that movie, he paid the worst price anyone could ever pay making a movie and it’s his legacy. … So that’s what the movie is, it’s not just a movie that can be remade. It’s one man’s legacy. And it should be treated with that level of respect.
