My boyfriend will be beyond thrilled, as the Crow is ultimately his favorite movie!!! So much so, it's tattooed on his shoulder! The original Crow grossed more than $100 million and became legendary by the unfortunate death of Brandon Lee. Now, Blade's director, Stephen Norrington, wants a piece of that golden ticket, to remake the original, not add to the series of unsuccessful sequels. Just as Stephen's original Blade was fantastic, the ones that followed lacked it's luster. The question in this whole endeavor is what actor, if any, would possibly come close to filling Brandon Lee's shoes?
The original '94 version was dramatically gothic and stylized, Norrington says, "The new movie will be realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style."
