THE CROW To Be Directed By Juan Carlos Fresnadillo
Relativity Media announced yesterday that a deal has been closed for Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) to direct a re-invention of THE CROW, the 1994 hit film based on the comic book series and comic strip by James O’Barr. Fresnadillo is best known for his direction of the film 28 Weeks Later, the post-apocalyptic horror sequel to 28 Days Later, which he co-wrote and produced with long-time producing partner, Apaches Entertainment’s Enrique López Lavigne.
Production on the film is scheduled to start in in fall of 2011, and a script will be developed once a writer is attached to adapt the screenplay. Casting has not yet been announced.
