James O'Barr To Be Consultant On The Crow Remake

As for the upcoming remake/reboot of The Crow we know that F. Javier Gutierrez is signed on to direct and Luke Evans (the bad guy in Fast & Furious 6) is on board to star in the film.  Now add creator of The Crow, James O'Barr to the mix as a creative consultant on the film.  O'Barr had this to say: “It is important for ‘Crow’ fans to understand that Relativity, Javier, Luke and the entire team are working on a new adaptation of the book itself. I believe that this movie will stand alongside Brandon and his film as a valid work of art, and I look forward to collaborating on the project.”  TMIAJ has been against this project from the go.  The Crow is one of our all-time favorite films and should be left alone.  But the possibility of a direct adaption even closer to the comic could be quite intriguing.  So perhaps we are warming up tot he idea of the film.  We shall see. As we get closer to the film's 20th anniversary in 2014, look for a special 2-part Retroplex Cinema in celebration at that time!
