SDCC 2013: 'The Crow' Creator Consulting On Reboot, Will Speak At Comic-Con!

Thanks to Bloody Disgusting,  we find out that James O’Barr, creator of the original “The Crow” graphic novel, has come on board as a consultant on Relativity Media’s upcoming reboot of the film.

Luke Evans is starring with F. Javier Gutierrez directing the adaptation written by Cliff Dorfman. Shooting on The Crow is finally set to begin in early 2014.

Relativity also announced that O’Barr and Gutierrez have been scheduled to appear at Comic-Con in San Diego to discuss the film and meet with fans.

The original 1994 movie was based on O’Barr’s story of a musician revived from the dead to avenge the murders of himself and his fiancee. The star, Brandon Lee, was accidentally killed during filming; the film grossed more than $140 million worldwide.

“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,” said O’Barr in a statement. “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.”

What do you Big Kids think? Does this give you some faith in the reboot?

The first movie was alright, classic but overrated.
