Nick Cave to Re-Write THE CROW Remake

by     Posted 3 years, 361 days ago

And just like that, I’m interested in Stephen Norrington’s remake of The CrowThe Wrap reports that writer/musician Nick Cave (The Proposition) has been brought on to re-write the screenplay for The Crow remake.  Norrington wrote the original draft of the script, which was set in a southwestern area (e.g. Mexico or Arizona) and an urban location (e.g. Detroit or Pittsburgh).  I can’t help but wonder if Norrington feels like he’s losing control again and flashing back to his last film, 2003′s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Cave’s most frequent collaborator is director John Hillcoat.  In addition to The Proposition, Cave also wrote the scripts for Hillcoat’s Ghosts…of the Civil Dead and the un-produced The Promised Land and Death of a Ladies Man.  Cave also wrote an amazing/batshit insane script for a Gladiator sequel.  While I have no interest in The Crow as a character or his goth world, Cave’s involvement has instantly landed this movie on my radar.

    :o not interested in The Crow? I admit the sequels are all retarded, but you didn't even like the original?

    Still waiting for somebody to make a non-failmode crow sequel. The first one was a masterpiece.
