Robbie Brenner discussed Relativity’s strategy new films, like Free Birds, while speaking with The Wrap. Among the various projects in the works is a reboot of The Crow franchise.

Brandon Lee as The Crow movie photo“After a couple of years of trying to find right script, I think we found a great one with Cliff Dorfman. We went back to the graphic novel, which has all of these wonderful elements. There’s great mythology and great imagery, and it’s just very grounded.”

One of the bits of exciting news for fans is the partnership with the original creator.

“I don’t want to say it’s an anti-superhero movie. But it’s very real and character driven and we’ve brought on James O’Barr, who wrote the graphic novel, as a creative consultant.”

O’Barr has praised the star attached, Luke Evans, who will be attempting to revitalize a film franchise seemingly doomed since the death of star Brandon Lee.

“It was his idea to go right back to the source material and essentially shoot it shot-for-shot, as in the book, but with a little more backstory for some of the characters,” O’Barr said to TF.

“He wants to be as faithful as possible, even down to all the visual metaphors of trains and horses.”

No real news are a start date, but expect production to start soon, so check back.
