Days after settling a lawsuit regarding the long-gestating remake of The Crow, Relativity has closed a deal with F. Javier Gutierrez to direct the comic book adaptation. At the same time, Jesse Wigutow has signed on to pen the script.
Gutierrez made a name for himself directing the Spanish-language horror movie Before the Fall (Tres Dias), which was a hit on the sci-fi and horror movie circuit and won numerous awards in Spain. The movie put the director on the Hollywood’s radar and he found himself attached to several horror projects including The Monkey’s Paw.
Wigatow worked on Eragon and The Ruins and recently did a rewrite on a remake of The Osterman Weekend at Summit.
Gutierrez had been in talks to tackle the movie for a while but development on the movie had stalled while the companies threw legal barbs against each other.
Crow is being produced by Edward R. Pressman, Jeff Most and Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh. Relativity’s Tooley (Immortals), TWC’s Harvey and Bob Weinstein and Farah Films’ Dan Farah, who reps Gutierrez will serve as executive producers.
Crow, created by James O’Barr, centered on a musician who is murdered while trying to save his fiancée from thugs. He is brought back from the dead by supernatural forces and seeks revenge. The movie became a cult hit due to its visual style but also due to its star, rising actor Brandon Lee, being killed by a freak accident during production of the original movie in 1993.
For a film to go from mere cult hit to a true cult classic, it doesn’t have to win any popularity contests, nor does it have to creep its way into the mainstream. Rather, the test that will determine the films that can call themselves true “cult classics” is the test of time. In ten years, will its fans still embrace it with the same fervour? Twenty years? Thirty? Films like Evil Dead, Gremlins, Flash Gordon and a host of others seemed to already have cemented their place in the annals of cult film history, but we can look forward to a future of many more fringe movies kept alive by fans.
And of course, when fans want to keep something alive, it isn’t only the production and distribution companies that respond: the toy-makers get involved, too! Which means that action figure lines like NECA’s Cult Classic collection probably won’t be slowing down anytime soon!
So far, they’ve already released more than eight sets of toys, ranging from characters like American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman and Silence of the Lambs’ Hannibal Lecter to Die Hard’s John McClane and the eponymous Shaun of the Dead. But now, over at CmdStore.com, you can find the latest sets of toys, plus a brand new series available for pre-order!
The new group of figures is known as “The Iconic Series” and for good reason: here are five characters who have not only withstood the test of time, but have become a part of a lexicon beyond that of film students or superfans. Even those less than crazy about non-mainstream film will definitely be familiar with these five: a Gremlin (Brain), Hellraiser’s Pinhead, Halloween’s Michael Myers, Beetlejuice and The Crow’s Eric Draven. For those merely seeking their favourite, these 6-inch figures can be purchased individually, but collectors can also pick ’em up as a set. Just click the link below to take a look!
