Stephen Norrington has been attached to direct The Crow for quite a long time. Now it looks like he has dropped out of the project, leaving the production in limbo until they find another director. Hard core fans of The Crow have been very vocal about the remake of this classic movie. Most of you hate the idea of it, as do I. But, just because Norrington has dropped out of the project, it doesn't mean the movie won't get made
He was recently asked about the project and some of the rumors surrounding this film, like Mark Wahlberg possibly being cast as the lead character, and Here was Norrington's reply.
As I had gotten involved explicitly as a writer-director my exit was inevitable. I was bummed. I had developed a genuinely authentic take that respected the source material while moving beyond it, and Nick Cave came in and added more depth. I think the fans would have been pleasantly surprised.
I guess we'll never know what Norrington really had planned for this movie. Whatever it was once a new director comes in, the project will end up being a different person's vision. They should just leave the property alone.
What do you think about Norrington leaving the project?
