The Crow remake good?

TheCrow.jpgWe heard about the remake of The Crow that Stephen Norrington was set to write and direct back in December of 2008, and then Alex Proyas popped up and said it was ridiculous and that he wouldn't even think of remaking it, particularly since it was Brandon Lee's film.

Then up came the news that it wasn't a remake, but "a whole new story about a whole new character." In the last three months we've heard nothing more, until now, and the word that the script for the film is really good.

Despite the word of the remake at the end of 2008, which Stephen Norrington said at the time was going to be very different from the original.

"Whereas Proyas' original was gloriously gothic and stylized, the new movie will be realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style."

A few months back a "source" allegedly close to the film started speaking about the intentions for the film:

"…very different from the original - a whole new story about a whole new character."

Now I still don't understand that, how can The Crow be The Crow without the original character or the original story? Let's hope it's not a cheap remake of the original with a new named character in the lead.

Well now Mania's "source" who told us that The Crow has nothing to do with the original, not even the same character, has said (through First Showing) that the script has been well received by the production company and that the film is moving forward.

That really doesn't tell us much, after all, the production company could be looking at this with regards cash, a way to tap into an existing audience and...well the usual story.
