Well, so much for that. If any of you guys were actually looking forward to that remake of “The Crow” happening, you’re gonna have to wait. Seems that the director, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who directed 2007’s “28 Weeks Later”, is the latest person to leave the project.
The remake would be based on the comic book series by James O’Barr. Fresnadillo was the latest director after he replaced Stephen Norrington, who left the project a while back after working on it for the last few years.
In mid-August, Bradley Cooper was reported to take on the lead role as Eric Draven, but eventually left the project due to scheduling conflicts due to his commitments for David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook” in the Fall and Alex Proyas’ “Paradise Lost” in early 2012.
Twitch goes on to report that though nothing is definite, Fresnadillo may take over the “Highlander” reboot for Summit but whichever which way it goes, Fresnadillo is out of “The Crow”.
With that said, Relattivity Media is on the hunt for a new director with “Before The Fall’s” F Javier Gutierrez being floated as a possibility.
