THR Heat Vision:
Days after settling a lawsuit regarding the long-gestating remake of The Crow, Relativity has closed a deal with F. Javier Gutierrez to direct the comic book adaptation. At the same time, Jesse Wigutow has signed on to pen the script.
Gutierrez made a name for himself directing the Spanish-language horror movie Before the Fall (Tres Dias), which was a hit on the sci-fi and horror movie circuit and won numerous awards in Spain. The movie put the director on the Hollywood’s radar and he found himself attached to several horror projects including The Monkey’s Paw.
