James O’Barr, the creator of “The Crow” comic, is set to serve as a consultant on the upcoming cinematic reboot of the property for Relativity Media.
O’Barr and the film’s director F. Javier Gutierrez are scheduled to appear at Comic-Con in San Diego in July to discuss the film and meet with fans.
Cliff Dorfman penned the new film which will star Luke Evans and begin filming in early 2014. O’Barr says that the new movie will not be a remake of the 1994 film so much as a new adaptation of the comic book itself.
He adds: “I believe that this movie will stand alongside Brandon [Lee] and his film as a valid work of art, and I look forward to collaborating on the project.”
