Stephen Norrington who directed Blade and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and who wrote such forgettable films as Death Machine and The Last Minute just got signed to make a remake The Crow...
“Whereas Proyas’ original was gloriously gothic and stylized, the new movie will be realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style,” Norrington told Daily Variety.
Something broke inside me when I read the news. My only hope is that Norrington goes back to the orignial comic for inpiration.
I don't know how upset I can be until I hear more about the project. I have watched The Crow: City of Angels, The Crow: Salvation, The Crow: Stairway to Heaven, and The Crow Wicked Prayer. If I didn't get on my high horse about those movies and the TV show, I cannot until I know more.
Well... this is the guy who made The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (which sucked) and Blade (which rocked). I have such mixed feelings right now.
