Nick Cave to Rewrite 'The Crow' Remake

Exclusive: Nick Cave to Rewrite 'The Crow' Remake

Iconic musician previously wrote John Hillcoat's acclaimed Australian Western "The Proposition"
By Jeff Sneider
Published: July 26, 2010

EXCLUSIVE

The last we heard about Relativity Media's remake of "The Crow," producer Ed Pressman told MTV [1] that an offer was out to a "major actor" and director Stephen Norrington ("Blade") had finished a "terrific" screenplay that would be set in two locations: "the southwest -- the Mexico/Arizona area -- and an urban [setting] -- Detroit or Pittsburgh or something like that."

Well apparently Norrington's take wasn't quite "terrific" enough, as Pressman recently told TheWrap that none other than iconic musician and acclaimed screenwriter Nick Cave has come on to rewrite the script.

Hiring Cave to rewrite Norrington's script is a bold move, but it may prove to be worth it in the long run, as Cave may be the perfect choice to help resurrect the fading franchise.

He made his screenwriting debut with John Hillcoat's 1988 prison drama "Ghosts of the Civil Dead," but what really has this lifelong "Crow" fan excited is Cave's impressive work on Hillcoat's gritty Australian Western "The Proposition," which was awesome.

While Cave's record label may not like to publicize his other career as a successful screenwriter, there's no doubt that he is in major demand, especially after having been named one of Variety's 10 Screenwriters to Watch in 2006.

Last year, it was announced that Cave had written "The Promised Land," an adaptation of Matt Bondurant's bootlegging novel "The Wettest County in the World." Hillcoat would once again direct, and Shia LaBeouf was attached to star. There were reports [2] that the project had "fallen apart" earlier this year but it seems like the film is still in development at Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher's Red Wagon Entertainment.

More recently, actor Andy Serkis revealed [3] that he and Cave are planning a motion-capture version of "The Threepenny Opera." Although it's unclear whether Cave will be writing the screenplay or simply contributing music for the feature adaptation of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's classic 1928 musical/operetta, it's nonetheless an ambitious project that shows what kind of material Cave is interested in.

Several years ago, Variety [4] reported that Cave and Hillcoat were collaborating on "Death of a Ladies' Man," an English tragicomedy named after the Leonard Cohen song that was set to star "The Proposition's" Ray Winstone as a sex addicted salesman who is forced to take his young son on the road with him after his wife commits suicide.

And before that, Russell Crowe asked Cave to write a sequel to "Gladiator," which would have ended with "a 20-minute war sequence that ended up in Vietnam, and then in a toilet in the Pentagon, with [Crowe] as this rage-fueled eternal warrior." Unfortunately, the studio rejected the script, as it proved impossible to finance.

Expect an announcement in the coming weeks about who will land the coveted role of Eric Draven in the reconceptualized remake of "The Crow," which will feature the titular bird as more of a full-fledged character than in Alex Proyas' 1994 original.

Cave is represented by United Agents in the U.K.

The original is one of my favorite movies. It just "worked". It had the perfect feel, the perfect soundtrack, and the perfect actor. I can't see any way to improve it. Just leave it alone.

This.

There should have never been a 2nd or 3rd or 32n'd.

Just a classic flick...

He does not have a legacy. Bruce Lee has a legacy.

If he were not Bruce Lee's kid no one knows or cares who Brandon Lee is.

I'm not really sure what this is supposed to mean. Obviously Bruce had a larger body of work and was more famous. So what?

The Crow is a great movie. It wouldn't matter of Brandon Lee was the son of a dead kung-fu movie guy or a bus driver from Cleveland. I've bought the Crow on VHS, VHS Widescreen, DVD and blu ray. OTOH I have never owned a Bruce Lee movie and frankly if I've ever watched one from start to finish I can't remember it.

I'm not interested in seeing a remake to this movie. I just say 'The Crow' was a good movie on it's own and didn't even need a sequel.

Like 'The Shining' they didn't need to make a remake to that just put the original back in the theatre and I would have gone to see that.

Very good comparison in my mind.

And no, I'm not comparing Alex Proyas to ****ing Kubrick...

I think King was the driving force behind that. Kubrick made massive changes to his story, and at the time he didn't have the power to do anything about it (I assume there was a little stupid little writer guy stuff going on). Second version is far more faithful to the book.

And no one but Stephen King gives a shit.

It was an average movie. Again, if he were not Bruce Lee's son Brandon would have never been a name anyone would remember.

Has nothing to do with you ever owning a Bruce Lee movie or even watching one.

It is the Bruce Lee name that has a legacy not Brandon Lee. Not sure why you can not comprehend this.

Read up on what Kubrick did its genius. He tore the source material apart and created a mirrored version of the book.

Notice in the beginning of the movie that there is smashed red vw Beatle as they're driving passed the wreck. In the book Jack and the family drive a red vw- not a yellow one. That was a visual message left for King that this movie was no longer going off the source material as its presented in the book...

Its been rumored that King was pretty full of his work and that Kubrick after meeting him was less than impressed and put off by King acting like he was doing Stanley the favor of telling him how to shoot the movie and acting as if he was speaking with some first time director.


Check out this site for more on the crazy genius SK plotted out with absurd detail into shooting the Shining. The guy was a high level genius and while you can poke at or dismiss some of what avid Shining fans have discovered if you read the site link I post, I think you'll have a completely new and profound appreciation for The Shining and the genius of Kubrick.

http://jonnys53.blogspot.com/2007/06...-seen.html?m=1

I would love to hear others opinions on the info from the website analysis of the Shining because even if half of what they discuss was planned out, I'm floored at what an undertaking Kubrick was able to achieve.
