Crow Revamp Takes Off With Positive Script Reviews

Stephen Norrington, of Blade, has finally finished the script to the Crow remake, and surprisingly it's being received very well. But an army of eye-linered fans may beg to differ.

Mania is reporting that the next Crow project is picking up steam, getting positive script reviews and readying for casting. But who could ever play undead rock star Eric Draven, or even if they create a new Eric-like character, can hard edged goth even sell anymore? Plus how many Crow loyalists are even left, after all the terrible sequels?

Norrington told Variety a few months back that his Crow would be different from the earlier versions:

Whereas Proyas' original was gloriously gothic and stylized, the new movie will be realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style.

Still, I can't imagine The Crow without an inch of makeup, at least. We'll see how this plays out.
