    Crow Creator Talks Upcoming Projects

    Source: Chris Congiardo

    August 10, 2009

    James O’Barr, creator of "The Crow," dropped in on the Chicago Comic-Con over the weekend and ShockTillYouDrop.com reader, Chris, wrote in with a brief report on what the man is up to.

    "He’s working on two new comics. ‘The Ride’ will feature a story revolving around a car chase between a late ’60s Camaro and a Cuda. The other comic, which is being fully painted, is titled ‘Sundown in Hell’ and is being touted as a vampire western.

    A 20th anniversary edition ‘Crow’ comic was scheduled to be released this year, but is now being planned for sometime early next year. James stated that when he was working on the original ‘Crow,’ some 32 pages of material had been cut. This new edition will feature that material.

    In regards to The Crow movie, he still keeps in touch with Alex Proyas and mentioned that 11 minutes of footage had been cut from the film, as it had originally received an X rating. James said that most of those 11 minutes featured Brandon Lee. James mentioned that Alex has been talking with the studios to access that material."

    for me it was when skank is trying to explain how T-bird died, and Top Dollar is trying not to laugh, and says they should video tape it and play it back slowly.

    Everyone post which scene or scenes make you tear up or just straight cry. For me, when Eric see’s the trick or treaters and laughs. My gawd!!! the music along with the freeze frame of Eric at the end of that scene makes me tear up every d*mn time, and I have seen this movie at least 100 times.

    It was good to see him there. I was volunteering at the booth across from his got to talking on friday when things cooled down. Commented that everyone was asking him about Ghostbusters and I was the only one who wanted to talk to him about The Crow.

    It was really cool talking to him about scenes. I told him my favorite scene by far was the scene with him and Brandon in Albrechts apartment. He told me it was Brandon’s and his favorites as well. He liked it because it really demonstrates and defines Albrecht and Draven friendship. It’s scene that just had everything, had a little humour ("Boo" and "You still have your hat on" I also mentioned that this was my favorite line of the movie next to "You’re not paying attention."), drama, relationship building, sadness and most of all heart. You really feel for both these guys who are both going through very different degrees of tragedy with Albrecht going through a divorce and losing rank for trying to do the right thing and Draven well for obvious reasons.

    Every time I watch this scene, it chokes my up when Eric is leaving and Albrecht comments about vanishing in to thin air and Eric, with such sadness, says "I thought I’d use your front door." Then Albrecht saying he was sorry for what happened. It just makes the scene and everything in it perfect.

    He then commented on my analysis of the scene and I said I wrote a paper on it for film class. Then when he took a break, he came back with a coffee for me.

    Pretty cool guy to meet.

    WHY are they remaking this?!?!?!

    It’s not even that old. It must be for all of the Hot Topic goth kids who are obsessed with it. And they’ll probably cast Johnny Depp or some *beep* to play the Crow. UGH

    Back in the mid 90s I hung out with a group of budding pseudo-goth 13-14 year olds. Everyone was obsessed with Goth bands/art but nobody dressed in all black.

    Anyway, every time I would go to my buddies house on the weekends this movie was constantly on. It was just the cool thing to do, I honestly hated this movie for many years because of how overplayed my friends made it. Apparently we weren’t alone in this and I have talked to a lot of people on the net that used to watch this movie obsessively back in the mid 90s. Hilarious as it may be when I watched it this time I had completely forgot about the little girl in the plot.

    That said it is a good flick but it seems soooo early 90s. I was reminded very strongly of New Jack City, just something about the art direction and the board room scene. Also the action scenes aren’t as good as I remember but I have had over a decade of other movies to compare it too.

    I think it has aged ok but I think it is rather silly how obsessed everyone was with it. I think everyone thinks that when they look back at their teen years. By 1996 everyone was obsessed with Natural Born Killers and its soundtrack.

    Anyone else hang out with people obsessed with this movie?

    I was trying to read the names of the band members under the picture of them in Club Trash, and in the picture that Albrecht had. The only one I could read (and barely so, at that) was Eric’s. If anyone was able to read the names of the band members, could you please tell me? I’m making something of a mock-up CD cover based on the band, so I was just wondering if anyone could help me with this. Thanks in advance.

    I love this film, and I thought the score was especially amazing. I’ve never heard anything like it in a film of this kind, it’s on par with some of the best in film history, and should have at least been nominated for an oscar. The main theme is absolutely haunting.

    I know all The Crow sequels are crap, but if they were to make another, who should play the lead?

    If they were to do another male lead, I’d have to say, Kett Turton.

    If it were a girl, I want to say Fairuza Balk or Rosario Dawson for some reason.

    If any of you pick a music artist, especially from an emo band, or, God forbid, *beep* Robert Pattinson, may a the fleas of a thousand camels infest your crotch and may your arms be too short to scratch!

    Seriously. Brandon lee was great and the original crow could never be topped. I heard the second one was good, BEFORE Fox got ahold of it. I would love to see a closer version to the comics though. That way, if it is ot good, than it really can’t be compared to lee version. More person conflict and self inflicked wounds. A lot more violence and gore (but stylish of course. that talent i leave to the director). The actually verbal mental conversations between the crow and draven. the muder on the roadside, etc etc. This could go REALLY good. could go really bad too.

    Well, I bought both the WORK PRINT and a rare camcorder tape (transfered onto DVD) of the Skull Cowboy footage from a bootlegger over the summer.

    Really, I saw almost NO difference between the theatrical version (and I own the 2-disc Collector’s Edition with the deleted / extended scenes) and the work print version.

    Only difference being: 1.) unfinished FX, 2.) lack of Proyas’ flashy editing (which really identified the film at the time, before everyone started copying him), 3.) some mildly extended scenes.

    The only significant differences I saw were:

    1.) when Arcade Games is blown up at the beginning, it shows T-Bird and his boys torturing a girl who works there. When the place blows up, it explodes onto Draven (who has just crawled from his grave and is making his way down the alley beside Arcade Games) and he is knocked back. Draven is then confronted by the burnt and dying Arcade employee and she is the first person he lays his hands on (therefore experiencing her memories) and he sees T-Bird and his men torturing her.

    Great scene!

    Should have been left in.

    2.) When Skank goes into the convenience store for "smokes and road beers", he is about to leave (to Chase after T-Bird, who is spirited away by Draven, who pops up in the back seat of his car) when a group of thug KIDS, wielding guns, burst into the store and hold up the place. They then shoot Skank in the shoulder as he is running out of the store.

    The camcorder footage is awesome, but is about an hour and a half long and mostly consists of Michael Berryman (of HILLS HAVE EYES fame) getting down up with his Skull Cowboy make-up.

    They do show some behind-the-scenes of scenes that were never shown (even on the Collector’s Edition deleted scenes) between Draven and the Skull Cowboy.

    It has a nice moment where Lee visits Berryman’s trailer and they joke around while Berryman is under the make-up FX people’s care.

    It also has Berryman telling the camera, very affectionately,

    "If Fangoria wasn’t my favorite magazine… I’d be illiterate."

    For a hardcore fan of the film the camcorder footage, at least, is very endearing, entertaining and touching…

    This is one of the closest book-to-movie adaptations I have ever seen. The plot was almost unchanged other than the setup, and the adult content had to be removed, but otherwise, why aren’t comic fans happy with it?

    I’ve first seen this film about 3 years ago, and I have to admit, considering this came out in 1994, it still stands well in the test of time.

    With that being said, I’m not so sure a remake/reboot would be a good idea. Sure, a series such as Highlander might need a reboot (I’m one of few people who support the Highlander reboot, although I am worried that they may screw it up), but this film’s visuals and cinematography doesn’t look too dated yet (well in my opinion that is).

    Oh well, I guess the reboot could go either way – something distinct from original and unique or going along the lines of mediocrity.

    Only time will tell.

    p.s. I wish people would stop contantly comparing this with TDK. I have to be honest here, I am a Batman fan and I do love Nolan’s Batman series (Batman Begins and TDK), so I do like TDK better(due to my bias being a Batman fan, and other factors which excludes the Joker vs Eric Draven comparison) – but that does not take away the fact that I love both films.

    To me, it just seems childish to see posts here saying "Eric will own the Joker" or vice versa. They are both excelllent, well done characters in their own right – let’s just leave it at that.

    1. It has new characters in the movie.

    2. Have Graeme Revel come back, or get someone to make a score that sounds like the first two.

    3. Have a good script.

    4. Don’t let the editors and studio’s ruin it in the editing room. That’s what happened to City of Angels.

    5. Get good actors.

    If you guys have any other recommendations fell free to post them.

    Crow Reboot Casting & Makeup Talk

    Source: io9

    November 23, 2009

    Ryan Kavanaugh, the producer behind the upcoming Brothers, is currently overseeing the development of Stephen Norrington’s franchise reboot of The Crow.

    He tells io9 that Norrington’s script is now in the tweaking stage and that everyone should know it is not a direct remake of the Brandon Lee-starring film. "We’re just relaunching it and making it with a much more present day character, someone more relatable to everybody."

    The makeup will very much be different from the Crow visage we’ve come to know (and which has become a year-to-year Halloween costume favorite).

    Also, as far as casting goes, "It will be an actor you’ve heard of, yes. We’re not ruling anything out. We’re looking at both, with the very well known and the ‘very talented but they may not be quite there yet.’"

    The Crow isn’t even a greenlit film yet, but it’s sounding like it will be in a matter of months.

    Stories affect everyone’s lives. It is why we are so engaged in movies and literature with great narratives. And, like it or not, the stories that we hear drives the way we live our lives. At Rewritten City, we are a role play site where the stories of old affect the progress of the stories that are new. The names of characters hearken back to narratives developed years ago. For example, one of our canons is RENT, a musical/film that is the product of an old opera entitled La Boheme. The Crow is a film a product of an old Indian legend about the crow that can raise people from the dead to right wrongs. The purpose is to choose your character – portray them, create them or fabric your own OC and join a world of characters from the past that live in today’s New York City. So all that is left is: What character to be and what character not to be, that is the question!
