Norrington submits script for THE CROW
Stephen Norrington (BLADE) has submitted his script for a new take on THE CROW to Relativity Media. The script has apparently been getting praise and Norrington has promised an “almost documentary style” approach. This, in an effort to differentiate his film from the original.
Norrington’s version of THE CROW, based on James O’Barr’s modern classic graphic novel, in not intended to be a remake of the first movie. In fact, it may not even be a remake of the graphic novel, per se. Norrington has also promised a “new character and storyline” as well, which raises a question of how different?
The first film (and only good one) was a Gothic take, dark and moody. directed by Alex Proyas (DARK CITY) and starred Brandon Lee, immortalized by his role in the film and his tragic, somewhat mysterious and untimely death during production.
