The Crow Comic Creator James O’Barr Will Be Involved In The Reboot

“It is important for ‘Crow’ fans to understand that Relativity, Javier [Gutierrez], Luke [Evans] and the entire team are working on a new adaptation of the book itself. I believe that this movie will stand alongside Brandon [Lee] and his film as a valid work of art, and I look forward to collaborating on the project.” – writer James O’Barr to Variety on the fan-dreaded Crow reboot.

O’Barr created the comic back in the 80s which went on to become the film starring Lee in 1994.  We previously heard Evans had been cast in the title role and was actually a fan himself. “I remember it vividly from when I was a kid. It still resonates to this day.”

Variety also says O’Barr has signed on as creative consultant for the film and will be making an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

The story goes something like this: Once upon a time, Relativity Media decided to remake The Crow. They really wanted Luke Evans to play the lead, but between playing Dracula and Bard the Bowman he’s a really busy dude. They (allegedly) considered some other actors, among them Alexander Skarsgård, James McAvoy, and Tom Hiddleston.

But they then decided, no, we’ll just wait for Evans’ schedule to clear up. And they all lived happily ever after if the movie’s good.
