The Crow creator James O’Barr has the following to say about the new movie, which will star Luke Evans and be directed by F. Javier Gutierrez, according to this link: GeekTyrant
O’Barr talked to Total Film about the director’s plan for the film, and what he thought of Evans’ makeup test:
“It was his idea to go right back to the source material and essentially shoot it shot-for-shot, as in the book, but with a little more backstory for some of the characters.
He wants to be as faithful as possible, even down to all the visual metaphors of trains and horses.
The producers showed me some shots of [Luke Evans] in the make-up and the tragedy really shows on his face, especially his eyes. He has a really commanding screen presence.”
