This is pretty big news for all fans of the original Crow film. Usually this types of films get no name directors that are solely there to make a film and get quick cash, but the announcement of Juan Carlos makes me believe that they are actually trying to make a GOOD movie. Carlos was responsible for directing 28 Weeks Later, the sequel to the awesome 28 Days Later. While 28 Weeks wasn't better than 28 Days, I will say that I really enjoyed it and I put it up there on my best sequels list. He managed to capture the same style of the first film by using those crazy shots for the infected mixed with the very loud and pulse pounding score. "
