'The Crow' Remake Aiming for Spring 2015 Production Start





Producer Ed Pressman (Wall Street, American Psycho) has revealed that The Crow remake’s long and bumpy road could finally be reaching an end, with production targeted to start next year.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter on the Abu Dhabi Film Festival's opening night, Pressman — who was also behind the 1994 original — said that he hoped production on the reboot of the cult horror would begin “in the spring."

Pressman, who was in Abu Dhabi to attend the International Showbiz Expo and also to collect a lifetime achievement award from the festival, described The Crow as “the anti-Spider-Man.”

“It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago,” he said. “But the generation today doesn't even know The Crow.”

A string of actors have been linked to play the iconic role made famous by the late Brandon Lee — who died in the making of the first film — with Dracula Untold’s Lee Evans the current favorite. Evans added further fuel to the fire earlier this year when he spoke about the film at the BAFTAs, telling Red Carpet TV about pre-production and saying that the remake would be “bringing to the screen a lot of parts of the story that were never really told."

However, Pressman said that nothing regarding casting was confirmed at this stage.
