The original 1993 movie The Crow starred Brandon Lee as Eric Draven, a rock star who is murdered along with his girlfriend, the night before their wedding. One year later, a mysterious crow resurrects Draven to seek vengeance on those responsible for his death.
The project seems to be a priority for Relativity Media, having just locked in director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo last week. However, Relativity Media representatives would not comment on the news, although insiders indicate he wants to take on the role.
Edward R. Pressman, Jeff Most, Ryan Kavanaugh, Enrique López Lavigne, and Belén Atienza will produce The Crow. A new writer is also being sought to develop the remake.
The producers hope to get production started on The Crow remake by this fall.
The Crow is in development and stars Luke Evans. The film is directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez.
