The Crow Remake Doesn’t Sit Right With The Original Director

0



Proyas is certainly entitled to an opinion on the matter, and what happened to Lee is an unquestionable tragedy. That being said, it’s not as though this is the first time another actor has headed up this franchise — far from it, in fact. Because “The Crow” was a hit, sequels soon followed. 1996’s “The Crow: City of Angels” starred Vincent Pérez as Ashe Corven, who takes up the mantle of the Crow. 2000’s “The Crow: Salvation” passed the torch to Eric Mabius’ Alex Frederick Corvis, and 2005’s “The Crow: Wicked Prayer” brought in Edward Furlong as Jimmy Cuervo.

There was also a short-lived TV show titled “The Crow: Stairway to Heaven” that featured Mark Dacascos as Eric Draven, so this isn’t even the first time that a new actor has played the same role that was made famous by Lee. So Proyas publicly protesting Lionsgate’s upcoming reboot of the franchise should come with an asterisk. The synopsis for the new film reads as follows:

Soulmates Eric Draven (Skarsgard) and Shelly Webster (FKA twigs) are brutally murdered when the demons of her dark past catch up with them. Given the chance to save his true love by sacrificing himself, Eric sets out to seek merciless revenge on their killers, traversing the worlds of the living and the dead to put the wrong things right.

Zach Baylin (“Gran Turismo”) and William Schneider penned the screenplay. The cast also includes Danny Huston (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), Isabella Wei (“1899”), Laura Birn (“Foundation”), Sami Bouajila (“Ganglands”), and Jordan Bolger (“The Woman King”).

“The Crow” remake is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2024.
