Is this even necessary? Stephen Norrington is remaking The Crow. Not another sequel or direct-to-DVD mock-up...no, this is a real remake.
According to Geeks of Doom.com; Norrington says; “Whereas (Alexy) Proyas’ original was gloriously gothic and stylized, the new movie will be realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style.”
Did this guy even see The Crow? It was pretty realistic in most regards. Mark my words. The guy they get to be Eric Draven can't win in this situation. You can't recreate Brandon Lee's performance and he is the base line everyone will be comparing him to.
