The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Make 'The Crow' Remake News Stop.

Honey Buzz ~ Make 'The Crow' Remake News Stop.

I've been on a rant about The Crow remake for what feels like an eternity. From comments from producer Ed Pressman that made me double check my life priorities, to rumors that the only thing legit thing about the project was on the way out... I feel like I've been annoyed forever.

Just last week, that last legit thing confirmed his exit from the project. Bye bye Luke Evans... Sadly, this is what I expected, delayed production, changing directors - Evans is a hot property now, so if the production can't take the proverbial shit, it's time to abandon the pot.  

New director Corin Hardy (and he is new. The Crow will be his second feature film and first big budget project) is now without an all important lead... but in a recent interview with Fangoria, Hardy is determined that he will bring The Crow to unwilling audiences. 

Fangoria caught up with Hardy at the Sundance Film Festival – where the director’s first horror feature The Hallow premiered:

“It’s still early days on that, but what I can say for now is that I’m a huge, huge fan of both the first film and James O’Barr’s graphic novel. I was obsessed with The Crow when I was growing up. When I heard about the remake, what I thought could be very interesting today, 20 years later, especially with this whole Marvel Universe that’s happened, is that the Crow always stood as an outsider to me. I kind of felt he would be the right character for me if I got the chance to do it. And now that I have gotten the chance to do it, I’m very much going back to the graphic novel, particularly looking into the illustrations themselves as much as the story, and picking out all those beautiful ideas and details that haven’t really been used yet.”

“I also want to open the story up in such a way that ‘The Crow’ is now part of a world where there are the Marvel movies and the ‘Dark Knight’ movies. I intend it to be incredibly emotional and brutal, and all the things you’d want from a Crow film. I want to make a movie that I would have wanted to see, as a huge fan of ‘The Crow.’ “

You go, Corin Hardy, you sweet passionate fool. You go. You make the "anti-Spiderman" and I'll just be over here hating you and your stupid remake plans.
