‘The Crow’ Creator James O’Barr Signs On For Movie Reboot

The Crow creator James O’Barr has come onboard as a consultant for Relativity Media’s movie reboot of his 1990s comics series, Variety reports. Among his duties will be an appearance with director Javier Gutierrez at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

O’Barr had an uncredited role as a robber in the original 1994 film, which starred Brandon Lee and is probably as well-known for the tragic accident that resulted in Lee’s death as anything else. That movie led to three film sequels, the last of which was released direct-to-video in 2005. There was also a TV series.

The new film will star Luke Evans, who also appeared in The Raven and Flutter. Guy loves birds. O’Barr said it’s an adaptation of the book, not a pure remake of the earlier movies.

O’Barr has been working on some The Crow projects for IDW in the past few months, the newest of which is titled The Crow: Curare. O’Barr wrote, lettered and did breakdowns for the series, with finished art by Antoine Dodé.
