Alex Proyas, who directed the 1994 adaptation of The Crow, issued a passionate statement about why the new remake should not happen.
The long-in-the-works reboot of The Crow has been almost absurdly troubled, having already hit so many bumps on the road already that it’s a wonder anyone in Hollywood still thinks it’s worth the trouble, but there’s one man who definitely thinks the various studios, producers, and possible star should just cut their… Read more...

For those who don’t know, there’s a dark history behind the Alex Proyas-directed adaptation of The Crow. On March 31, 1993, star Brandon Lee died during filming in an accident that involved a prop gun.

As any science fiction fan knows, it’s always a bad sign when a robot has dreams or visions of its own. Think Isaac Asimov’s short story collection “Robot Dreams,” Alex Proyas’ 2006 dystopian whodunit “I, Robot” or Kike Maíllo’s 2011 thriller “Eva.“ But for artificial intelligence researchers, the whole notion is anything but a nightmare scenario.

The pinnacle of Alex Proyas’ career as a filmmaker is his 1994 adaptation of the James O’Barr graphic novel The Crow. Of course, Proyas’ two most recent films, Knowing and Gods of Egypt, might seem to indicate that he’s given up topping himself, but that hasn’t stopped others from trying to top his version of The Crow.

Alex Proyas’ The Crow was one of my favorite movies growing up, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that it hasn’t aged well. In fact, I’m sort of hoping that it gets remade and is even more faithful to James O’Barr’s awesome comic book. Relativity has been developing a fresh take on The […]
