According to Variety, director F. Javier Gutiérrez is going to take the stage with James O’Barr, creator of The Crow.
O’Barr has boarded the redo – which has seen directors and actors come and go – as a consultant. Shooting will begin in 2014 with a script by Cliff Dorfman.
“It is important for Crow fans to understand that Relativity, Javier, Luke and the entire team are working on a new adaptation of the book itself,” said O’Barr in a statement. “I believe that this movie will stand alongside Brandon and his film as a valid work of art, and I look forward to collaborating on the project.”
Luke Evans was cast to play the eponymous character in May.
