This convo was from SHM and some dudes talking about the script of The Crow remake with producer producer Ryan Kavanaugh and director Stephen Norrington
“i09..I heard The Crow script received great reviews, where is it at now?
Kavanaugh…The script is great. We’re very excited about it. The Crow is definitely going to happen, we’re just getting all the pieces together right now. It’s not officially greenlit, but it’s going to happen… I think in a couple months we could have the package together for sure.
Any casting ideas?
Can’t talk about that yet, but we’ve got good ideas.
Are you casting right now and looking?
We’re looking. We’re in discussions….I think it’s something cool, we’re approaching it differently. It’s really a whole relaunch of the franchise, much more of a dark superhero type.
Will it be a well known actor, or someone we’ve never heard of before?
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.”
A lot of people were worried that it would be the original, but we know The Crow character can inhabit different people…
It’s not a remake it’s literally a relaunch of the franchise.
But will he have the same makeup?
No, totally different… He’ll have makeup, but it will be different. The best way to compare it is the first Batman and Batman Begins In terms of their look and feel and character.
I’m excited to see the world and how you build it. Will it still be dark and gritty?
Oh yeah, we’re sticking to the flavor of it. We’re just relaunching it and making it with a much more present day character, someone more relatable to everybody.
And the script is totally finished?
Yeah we’re still tweaking it, but it’s finished.”
