"The Crow" Reboot May Not Happen Due to Lawsuit

Posted: April 21st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Crow" Reboot May Not Happen Due to LawsuitSubmit Comment
We recently reported that Relativity Media is working on "The Crow" reboot and is in talks with Bradley Cooper (The Hangover) to star and Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) to direct. The plan was to begin filming in the fall, but now it looks like that may not happen.

The Weinstein Company has filed a lawsuit against Relativity, claiming there's "a written contract signed by everybody" which gives the Weinsteins exclusive worldwide distribution rights to "The Crow" reboot.

The original was distributed by the Weinsteins at Miramax back in 1994 and grossed $50.6 million domestically. "[Relativity head Ryan] Kavanaugh was not going to honor that contract," said Weinsteins' lawyer Bert Fields. "Apparently, he's going to sell these rights to others. He made a bunch of threats. Some people may submit to that kind of arrogant conduct, but we're not going to do it. If anybody tries to buy these distribution rights in 'The Crow,' they are buying nothing but a lawsuit and they will get sued."

Relativity quickly replied, stating that the lawsuit is nothing more than a threat and it will not interfere with the development of the project.

I say it's Curse of the Crow. But seriously, leave the Eric Draven story alone. Rebooting the Crow is like rebooting Enter the Dragon. Let the Lees rest in peace.

Come up with some new ideas!

'Total Recall', and now 'The Crow'? These films don't need to be remade. It's not like they were made in the 1940's for Pete's sake! The oldest is only twenty one years old (1990); that's still considered a modern film.

Watch, they'll start remaking Jurassic Park next. Idiots.

Well, they can stop rebooting when they finally get it right. The first Crow film wasn't eactly faithful to the source. And Total Recall is so loosely based on it's source material that there's plenty of room for a brand new plot.

I was so happy to read that headline, then after reading the article I feel angry again.

Leave this story alone, no need for remake or reboot or whatever the f*ck you want to call it now.

Why Bradley Cooper? Why not Mark Dacostas? he can still kick ass right?

Get someone with a martial arts back ground.

I think that the rights should go to Warner Bros. cause, not only is it one of my 6 fav studios, it's also cause Disney and DreamWorks Animation can't make it for obvious reasons and it seems more reasonable than 20th Century Fox, Columbia, and Paramount since WB is great with dark revenge movies!
