The Crow remake gets a new director
The remake of cult action classic The Crow has a new director, with rising star Corin Hardy replacing the departing F. Javier Gutiérrez.
Hardy, who is best known for directing music videos for the likes of Biffy Clyro, Ed Sheeran and The Prodigy, as well as acclaimed animated short film Butterfly, is currently in post-production on horror chiller The Hallow, his debut as a feature director.
According to Deadline, Hardy's appointment comes after he was highly recommended to producer Edward R. Pressman by Edgar Wright. He will begin production on the remake next year.
The Crow tells the story of Eric Draven, a rock musician who is revived from the dead to avenge his murder and that of his fiancée.
Luke Evans, star of Dracula Untold and Fast 6, is strongly rumoured to be taking the leading role in the remake, which originally starred Brandon Lee.
The original entered film notoriety when Lee was accidentally killed during filming. The actor was mortally wounded after being shot in the back during a stunt that went horribly wrong.
