It's official; nothing is sacred anymore. Hollywood is running out of ideas, which is why Alex Proyas' gothic cult-classic The Crow is being rebooted. The original film starring the late Brandon Lee (in his final role) is quite dear to me, much like it is for the many people that have loved the film since its release in 1994. But, like it or not, the new film is going to be made, and all we can do is accept it. While it would be nice to remain hopeful about the project, everything that has been announced lately regarding the casting of undead rock'n'roll avenger Eric Draven leads me to believe that the producers of the film haven't got a single clue about how to approach the material.
