‘The Crow’ remake is to go before cameras in Spring of 2015.
Edward R Pressman described the project as “the anti-Spider-Man” at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.
“It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago,” Pressman told The Hollywood Reporter.
“But the generation today doesn’t even know The Crow.”
The original movie adaptation of ‘The Crow’ was marred with misfortune when Brendan Lee the son of iconic martial arts star Bruce Lee died while making it. That film, which was made in 1994 was produced by Edward R. Pressman and was directed by Alex Proyas.
It was based on James O’Barr’s comic of the same name.
Pressman was in attendance at the festival to collect a lifetime achievement award.
Luke Evans will star in director F Javier Gutierrez’s The Crow.
