Alex Proyas Denounces Corin Hardy’s The Crow

Posted on: December 9th, 2017

Director Alex Proyas took to Facebook to explain why he thinks The Crow should not be remade. It’s an emotionally-driven and somewhat understandable plea, but I can’t say I agree with what Proyas has said. Click here to read the post in full.

It obviously must have been heart-breaking for Proyas when Brandon Lee lost his life on the set of The Crow and he is not wrong when he describes the legacy Lee has left behind. He was a brilliant Eric Draven and that cannot be denied. But, The Crow is not Proyas’. His 1994 film is an adaptation of James O’Barr’s 1989 comic. In fact, O’Barr himself is working closely on the re-imagining with director Corin Hardy (The Hallow, The Nun).

As Proyas acknowledges, there were sequels and TV re-imagining of The Crow, so Hardy’s film will not be the first new version of the story since 1994. A remake/re-imagining/new interpretation will not take away from Lee’s performance and could, alternatively, draw in people who may not have seen the original.

I love Alex Proyas’ The Crow, but I am very much looking forward to Hardy’s version with Jason Momoa in the lead role. More as it comes!
