Yes and no. Hollywood has always remade films, but the it's more frequent right now than it ever has been. What's more of a shame is the fact that they re-start franchises and remake films simply for profit and not because they have a creative way of bringing the film into the modern age.

YIKES! I don't read this thread for a few days, and I come back to a flurry of posts saying the second one is as good as the original, if not BETTER?!?! Not even close.

anyway, my interest in this remake went from absolute zero to very curious with the word that Hiddleston might do it. Well, turns out it's likely untrue. From Deadline.com:
Quote:
Also not happening is Thor and The Avengers antagonist Tom Hiddleston starring in Relativity Media’s reboot of The Crow. A simple conversation has been overhyped and reported like it was going to happen. The guy to keep an eye on here is True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard, who is getting numerous offers since his plans to star for David Yates in Tarzan died on the vine when Warner Bros halted the project over budget. No formal offer yet, but it sounds to me like it’s Skarsgard’s role if he wants it in the F. Javier Gutierrez-directed film series relaunch.
My interest is officially now back to ZERO. Skarsgard as The Crow does not appeal to me at all.

I don't usually like to say anything negative about a movie on it's own thread, but with this I must make an exception. The original crow is one of the best of the 90s and the reason for this is that it's a movie that could only have been made in the 90s. The soundtrack, the effects, and the overall feel of the movie are things that help to capture a moment in time. Another thing about this remake is that it's probably one of the least necessary I've heard about lately (along with Starship Troopers and American Psycho). It's just not that old. The acting and even the efects still hold up very well. The only reason that they're attempting this travesty is because of this stupid Hot Topic generation. They'll drool over a movie like this. They are going to take a great movie and try to turn it into another twilight (if you like that fine, but I'm using it as an example). I hope, more than most of these remakes, that this one falls through.

Looking at this photoshop pic makes me see that bloke Michael Fassbender can play The Crow. He's a decent enough actor that can muster all kinds of emotions.

It happens in music, so when will a movie and its remake come out the same year?

While I'm still on the fence about this (only thing that got me interested was the Hiddleston rumor - now that that was squashed, I don't care about it at all), you have to realize this is not a remake of the first film. It's another adaptation of the comic/graphic novel. That's like saying Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet is a remake of Olivier's Hamlet (or Mel Gibson's, or...). It's not. It's just a movie based on the same source material.

Not so much with US films, but US remakes of foreign films come pretty fast sometimes. Let the Right One In/Let Me In and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo jump to mind. Those were both just a two-year turnaround.

Tom Hiddleston made this remake sound good to me. Skarsguard is a good actor but Hiddleston would be my first choice.

So instead of the two guys recently rumored, they get the guy they first wanted.

Welsh actor Luke Evans has landed the title role in the rebooted version of The Crow.

According to Deadline, Evans was the original choice for the role, but has been extremely busy of late and for a time seemed unavailable – he's just been cast in Dracula Year Zero, and can be seen this year as the villain in Fast & Furious 6 and as Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

When it looked unlikely that Evans would be available, the distributor apparently considered the likes of Tom Hiddleston and Alexander Skarsgard. But in the end, the start of production was shifted to early 2014 to secure Evans' involvement. Evans is now in final negotiations for the role.

Have to look up the critic (think it was on Digital Bits) who once said that indie/B horror franchises that fall out of their original ownership, and jump from one no-name studio to another for no-relation title-franchise direct-video sequels "are like a game of Hot Potato: The franchise is passed hand-to-hand, from one producer to the next, and so on, until they run out of steam, and when the last one has to reboot the original movie, the Game is Over."

It's funny to read that at first, and think he's kidding.

Eric Draven Is An Invisible Bible Quoting Cop In ‘The Crow’ Remake?

Hot on the heels of the the news that Relativity and the Weinstein Company have cast Luke Evans (No One Lives, the upcoming Dracula prequel) to play Eric Draven in their reboot of The Crow, a script review has hit the net. And it’s not pretty.

Latino Review got their hands on the latest draft, and they’ve posted a thoughtful video review of it. And – despite pretty much hating it – they play fair, only reviewing the basis/conceit without going into any actual plot spoilers. It also seems like Da7e, who authored the piece, has a genuine affection for the material and posted his review as a warning shot saying, “there’s time to fix this. Please do.”

For one, they apparently throw in the kitchen sink with healing and ghost powers. Plus, Eric Draven is now a bible quoting police officer (not a rock musician) who has to paint his face because he’s invisible? The basic gist of the review is that the current draft is beyond saving and a page 1 rewrite is needed. Granted, I haven’t read it, but this assessment is fairly convincing.

Head inside for the video review (which includes even more details).

A remake of the Crow this isn't right. I would never watch this, love the original and city of angels. This should just be a new charecter story like city of angels not a remake. Im starting to hate the word remake.

Default F. Javier Gutierrez Following the Graphic Novel Closely for Crow Reboot



Quote:
There's already a great deal of hoopla surrounding the long talked about remake of The Crow... the project has already been hampered by legal woes, negative story reactions, etc. Hopefully this latest tidbit of news will quell said negativity.

In a recent interview with Total Film, creator James O'Barr shed some light on what to expect from F. Javier Gutiérrez's upcoming film. According to O'Barr, Gutiérrez's vision will be even more faithful to the 1989 comic.

“It was [Javier's] idea to go right back to the source material and essentially shoot it shot-for-shot, as in the book, but with a little more backstory for some of the characters,” O’Barr told them. “He wants to be as faithful as possible, even down to all the visual metaphors of trains and horses.”

O’Barr, who is active in this new version of his book, talks on seeing Luke Evans in make-up: “The producers showed me some shots of [Luke Evans] in the make-up, and the tragedy really shows on his face, especially his eyes. He has a really commanding screen presence.”

All that being said... can we finally start getting a bit excited?

The film is being produced by Ed Pressman, Kevin Misher, Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, and Jeff Most. Exec producers include Relativity’s president Tucker Tooley, The Weinstein Co.’s Harvey and Bob Weinstein, and Farah Films’ Dan Farah.

Love and respect the original film and the graphic novel. They better bit mess this up. I got sucked into seeing city of angels and hated it. Was most nothing more but a rush to cash in sequel, followed by more crap sequels I happily avoided. This might be the film to apologize for all that.
