Stephen Norrington Departs The Crow

Director Stephen Norrington is no longer attached to The Crow, reports

When approached for comment about casting rumors, Norrington told the site that he was off the project, following the demands of an unnamed actor to completely overhaul the script (which Norrington had drafted and which was rewritten by Nick Cave).

"As I had gotten involved explicitly as a writer-director my exit was inevitable,"
says Norrington, "I was bummed. I had developed a genuinely authentic take that respected the source material while moving beyond it, and Nick Cave came in and added more depth. I think the fans would have been pleasantly surprised."

The current status of the project is unknown but it will presumably move forward with a different creative vision.
