James O'Barr Talks 'The Crow' Reboot

James O'Barr, creator of The Crow, recently chatted with Total Film and went in to a little detail on the now-in-production reboot.

Here, he discusses how director F. Javier GutiƩrrez wants to utilize every ounce of the source material.
“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,” O’Barr told us.

“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.”
