    I'm pretty open minded but I see no merit in this at all.

    An "almost documentary style" version of The Crow? Are you kidding me? Doing it in gothic style is the only way The Crow works in the first place. The guy wears black and white face paint for Chrissakes! The idea of a realistic version of an a goth kid looking for bad guys with black bird following him is laughable.

    I thought he quit directing after TLOEG. Apparently he just quit being creative.

    Hunter... you should rename this thread, "Stephen Norrington to s**t on the Crow."

    But this isn't a sequel, it's a freakin' REMAKE!

    Right? Correct me, if I'm wrong.

    i'd rather not see a reinvention. a sequel would be fine or even a reboot, but i honestly think that the original Crow should be considered sacred.

    that being said, i LOVED the first Blade and it's still my favorite, but i disliked tLoEG. i hope that he can go back to his Blade style for this movie....if it indeed gets made.

    I'm going to rant a little bit here....

    I cannot even begin to describe how annoyed this makes me!

    The Crow is one of my all-time favorite films, easily in my top 10. For a long time it was my favorite film.

    The first film with Brandon Lee is such a classic and triumph in movie making. I'll never forget the first time I watched it. It was one of the reasons I became such a movie buff and fell in love with cinema.

    There is absolutely no need to remake this film. It's critically acclaimed and has a huge cult following as well. The original will always hold a special place in fan's hearts. Not only that but the movie is only 15 years old!

    Not only that, but how can anyone match Brandon Lee? Everyone who has attempted to fill his shoes in the sequels have failed.

    I feel like this film is a testament to Lee and his legacy. Can't Hollywood find something creative & original to do and not keep remaking films?!

    ********...total bull ****.

    Why do they need to 'remake' this?? If he really wants to make a Crow movie just make another sequel. Don't use the actual character Eric Draven.

    I hope this doesn't happen.

    This just seems pointless.

    A ROBOCOP sequel or a DUNE remake is one thing. Remaking THE CROW, which is not a well known character and less than twenty years old?

    Your really wrong here. Go to any highschool, or Hot Topic and ask around more people will know about The Crow then ROBOCOP or DUNE combined.

    Highschool and Hot Topic?

    Really?

    Not referring to how popular something is among kids. I'm referring to the fact that the original is less than 15 years old. And that I see it as a bit soon to be making a remake of it.

    My usual aversion to frivolously rehashed properties aside, this sounds horrid.

    I don't want to stretch things too far but...

    I feel like remaking this film is a disrespect to Brandon Lee.

    The guy put his heart and soul into this movie, and unfortunately that horrible accident happened and took his life. The mad died filming this movie. Sadly the film that would have made him into a huge star was his last.

    Thankfully Alex Proyas and Miramax decided to finish the film and honor Lee's work. What were were left with was an amazing and heart-breaking performance, especially considering the movie's theme and Lee's accident.

    If you they want to make another Crow sequel, that's fine (but honestly, do we really need another one?). But leave this one alone!

    I couldn't help but laugh at your pleas for originality, creativity, and aversion to remakes when I can see that Superman Returns is in your top 5. :funny:

    Perhaps I just don't have a total love for the original movie that I don't mind this project. 15 (or less) years is still quite a long time. At least for a remake, it's going for a reinvention instead of a retread. That's always promising. I'll wait to see more info on this. But at the moment I'm indifferent.
