Norrington’s “Crow” Reboot Still Active

Seems you can’t keep “The Crow” down as the talked about reboot of the gothic hero franchise looks to be picking up steam.

Producer Edward Pressman tells MTV News that writer-director Stephen Norrington has finished the film’s script and casting is currently underway.

“[We’ve got an offer out] to a major actor and things are moving ahead very aggressively, with the aim of doing the film this year” said Pressman, who also confirms that unlike Alex Proyas’ 1994 first film, the reboot will be set primarily somewhere in the U.S. South West.

“The setting is the southwest – the Mexico/Arizona area – and an urban [setting], Detroit or Pittsburgh or something like that,” he says. “There are two locations that the film is set. Its initial platform is in the southwest and then it moves to the big city in the north, middle or eastern America, and then back.”
