The Crow Reboot Moving Forward

The screenplay for a new The Crow film is finished and production will begin this year, Producer Edward Pressman told MTV today.



The new film will, according to Pressman, be set in both a small Southwest town and a larger city. The action will move from the town to the city and back again.



Though a star is not currently attached, Pressman claims that an offer has gone out to "a major actor."



The new film will attempt to reboot the franchise with a number of alterations. One Pressman talks about is the nature of the actual Crow itself, describing it as "a creature… it’s not just a bird. It’s got a personality and a character. Not like Godzilla exactly, but it’s very different [and has] a more active role in the story."



Originally a 1989 comic book miniseries by James O’Barr, the series spawned a number of graphic sequels, four feature films and a television series.
