Remaking The Crow...

I really don't know how I feel about this... The Crow is one of my top 10 movies of all time. Brandon Lee seemed to embody what the character truly was... a lost soul, searching for revenge. Stephen Norrington (director of Blade) has said he has a new take on the character. I don't know about that at all. The 1994 Crow movie was very gripping, yet comic relief played a role in Lee's sarcastic vengeful spirit. Jason Statham is rumored to be interested in doing the role, but that is not final. He's a fair action actor, but I don't know if he's suited for the role of Eric. This thing is all over the web. I have seen it on at least a dozen sites. They all say the same thing and have about the same information. There's no set date for production, cast, or release date as of this writing, but you can rest assured that I will keep a close eye on this movie with high expectations and curiosity. There's a video of the trailer for the original The Crow at the end of this post... check it out!

Here's a brief look at what Norrington's take is on the character Eric... It will have to be a wait and see on this one...
From IMBd, The Internet Movie Database...
His approach won’t be the Gothic style Alex Proyas used to such good effect in the 1994 original, but rather a ”realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style” film. That’s a little bit odd, as the Gothic style really worked for the story of a murdered rock star who comes back for revenge one year after his death, but Norrington seems pretty confident in his vision.

No matter how good the actor may be in any other than the original Crow movie, none will compare to Brandon Lee, he was a unique actor, simply made for the part.....just my thoughts, how are you?...cheers...keep it coming!

I couldn't agree with you more... Brandon Lee was awesome in this movie. That's why I'm a little antsy about a remake...

Unless this was a SinCity-like movie based on "The Crow Author's Edition" (see http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/thecrow/ ) I would hate a remake was made

I do have my doubts as well. The director is not going the gothic route which makes me wonder what his plan is...

I might watch it, but I'm sure it will pale in comparison to the original.

There are some movies you really don't want to see remade... this may be one for me that I wish they would bypass.
