    Todd will announce tomorrow that the movie is still happening. That’s it. :funny:

    This damn thing ain't happening Todd. Just let it go or let someone else helm the thing so it'll get out eventually. Oh, what am I kidding, the development for this reboot-remake-whatever-we're calling it is hell right now.

    When The Crow reboot beats you to the punch either pull your finger out or give it up.

    Jamie Foxx isn’t getting younger, make big strides or cancel the project!

    LOL. Here’s an idea, Todd. Just make an announcement when you’re actually ready. You don’t need to do a teaser every time you’re going to say something about your movie. Because if there’s a delay, you end up embarrassing yourself.

    Though that’s kind of your thing, isn’t it?

    I actually laughed out loud with the no-announcement announcement.

    So the so called “script” is getting worked on again…

    If I’m 32 now and the film was originally announced when I was 16, maybe it’ll be released when I’m 48.

    At least, Todd acknowledged he probably shouldn’t direct. Maybe if they get someone who knows what they’re doing, but that’s a big if, this could get off the ground. We’ve been here before, though!

    No idea why they had to delay the news to today.

    Yeah, weird about the delay but this is the first bit of news about this movie in a long time that has given me some actual hope. I know some fans might have issues with these writers but I liked both Joker and Falcon & Winter Soldier, so this feels like a positive development. And even more positive is Todd admitting that someone with actual directorial experience should be at the helm. A lot will hinge on who that ends up being of course, but at least Todd isn’t so immersed in hubris that he still thinks he’s the only person for the job.

    It took him five years to realise that a person who is a comic book writer/artist might not be the best person to entirely helm a feature film on his own, by writing, directing and producing it with no prior experience in any of it*. Ok...

    I read a Jason Blumm interview recently where he mentioned that they'll try to move it forward soon. So I'm guessing that was probably him telling McFarlane that it wasn't working with his script and Todd finally agreeing to let someone else take over. I have a feeling now that other people took over it will move quicker.

    *Has he not seen this?

    To be fair, he may not have seen that movie, because almost no one did, lol.

    I still can’t believe I was dumb enough to try and watch it. My partner at the time dozed off after the first 5-10 minutes. She was the smart one. :funny:

    That's definitely the right approach!
    I remember being excited for this because of how much I loved Sin City.

    Haha yeah I think that was why I gave it a shot too. Speaking of Sin City… I tried watching the sequel to that when it came out and it was almost as bad as The Spirit.

    Yeah I saw the Sin City sequel in theaters because I loved the first film and I ended up dozing on and off throughout the film that I really couldn’t tell anyone what the plot of the movie is. A disappointment that I can’t even bring myself to watch it on cable.

    I’m glad that this movie is hopefully moving in the right direction because there’s a lot of potential with this comic that is screaming for a great film. Now if only we can get a Darkness adaption going.

    Yeah, I think there is a ton of potential in a lot of the old Image and post-Image superheroes. Jim Lee’s WildCATs could be really cool, as well as The Authority/Stormwatch. I probably would prefer to see those as TV shows rather than movies but either way, there is a lot of potential there.

    No Liefeld stuff though! Haha. I think I heard something about Gyllenhaal starring in a John Prophet movie for some reason, lol.

    I would actually like them to base the Prophet film after the comic from the last decade which was like this psychedelic space opera. WildCATs would be cool. I loved the animated series from the 90’s

    Cool; I never read any of the newer stuff with Prophet. I only read the earlier stuff from the 90s. He was definitely one of Liefeld’s better Image creations (that’s not saying much, but ya know) but I was really surprised that they were planning a movie about him.
