The CrowWhether Mark Wahlberg ends up playing the lead role in "The Crow" remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain: Stephen Norrington will have nothing to do with the project.

Previously attached as the director of the franchise reboot, Norrington has revealed that he is no longer involved with "The Crow" in any capacity. When contacted by Mania to comment on rumors of Wahlberg's casting, Norrington replied: "I don't know about that story but I can tell you I'm no longer involved with 'The Crow.'"

The filmmaker revealed that an unnamed actor became involved with the reboot and was thoroughly enthralled by Norrington's vision, but later rejected Nick Cave's script and requested a new take from a new writer. Read More...

The CrowBack in February, director Stephen Norrington revealed that "The Crow" may begin shooting this summer. And while news on the project has been relatively quiet since then, word has emerged that "The Crow" could be filmed in Detroit, too.

"Part of the new story is set in Detroit and we've been discussing the logistics of shooting on location," Norrington told Mania.com. The original "Crow" comic was created by Michigan native James O'Barr who set his first storyline in Detroit.

Alex Proyas' adaptation of "The Crow" also took place in Detroit during the backdrop of Devil's Night — an annual Detroit tradition in which abandoned and derelict houses are burned. Read More...

The CrowDirector Stephen Norrington's upcoming relaunch of "The Crow" may finally be on the verge of getting a greenlight to begin production.

"The producer and visual effects people are crunching numbers," Norrington told Mania.com. "We've opened discussions with major cast but nothing is final yet."

Norrington also indicated that "The Crow" would probably be filmed before his supernatural World War II thriller, "The Lost Patrol." Additionally, Norrington stated that he hopes to begin filming "The Crow" during the summer and that he expects to deliver a first draft of the script later this month. Read More...

The CrowThe announcement that "Blade" director Stephen Norrington was planning to helm a remake of 1994's "The Crow" met with a cold response from both fans and the director of the 1994 film. But how will those same detractors feel when they hear that the remake isn't a remake at all?

An undisclosed source tells Comics2Film that Norrington's upcoming installment in the "Crow" franchise will not be a remake, but an entirely new concept altogether. In other words, the iconic role of Eric Draven will not be revisited in the new movie. Read More...

'The Crow'It's beginning to look like "1990s Day" here at Splash Page -- over the past few hours, we've had mentions of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," news on a new film based on "The Phantom" (which hopes to one-up the 1996 Billy Zane flick), and now, according to Variety, it looks like the 1990's goth anti-hero, "The Crow," is headed back to Hollywood with "Blade" director, Stephen Norrington, set to write and direct.

While Variety points out that a "Crow" revamp is still in the very early stages of development -- basically noting that Norrington has signed on to write and direct, and that negotiations with producer Ed Pressman to acquire the franchise and to finance the film are underway -- the big news is Norrington's return to the medium since taking an extended sabbatical after the failure (as well as the rumored behind-the-scenes drama) of "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" (which was also the last film made by it's star, Sean Connery).
