A while back we reported that ‘The Crow’ remake was dead in the water, due to Relativity Media’s bankruptcy. Well, it seems that the movie is alive again and is planned to be Relatively Media’s first post-bankruptcy film. Producer Edward J. Pressman has been credited with saving the film by filing an objection saying the remake could be seen as an asset to the company. The studio’s announcement that they were moving forward with ‘The Crow’ may be due to the fact ‘The Hollow’ directer, Corin Hardy, has now signed on for remake.

A horde of actors, including Bradley Cooper, Luke Evans and Jack Huston have been attached to play the main character of Eric Draven, originally played by Brandon Lee, but none have stuck around for long. So far the remake has seen both cast and directors come and go. Maybe it’s just the universe trying to tell the studio to leave the iconic film alone.

In the 1994 film, directed by Alex Proyas, Eric Draven and his fiancee are murdered on “Devil’s Night”. Eric returns from the grave to seek revenge against the gang that ended their lives.




Actor Brandon Lee, son of Martial Arts Master Bruce Lee, lost his life in a freak accident on set on March 31, 1993, and mourned world wide. Lee was killed when a bullet had unknowingly lodged in the barrel of a gun that was filled with blanks for the scene. When the other actor fired, the bullet unlodged and struck Lee in his spine. Hours later he passed away.
