I’m not a fan of the Conjuring films. Not because they are bad films, but they scare the bejeezus out of me. The success of both films have given way for spinoffs, and thus launching what is known as The Conjuring Universe. Following the success of two surprisingly good Annabelle films, comes The Nun.
The portrait which appeared in The Conjuring 2 is getting its very own spinoff, which isn’t in the same vein as the Annabelle films, but it does give us pause as to why we keep inflecting scars on ourselves watching these terrifyingly good horrors/thrillers. Check out the first trailer below.
Getting a remake of The Crow up and moving has not been an easy task, with multiple stars and directors attached over the years. But that doesn’t appear to be slowing down the effort to make it happen.
It’s being reported that a new actor is in talks for the lead role, and that actor is Game of Thrones and Aquaman star Jason Momoa.
Relativity’s remake of The Crow has just been one slow-going process. Between the actors and directors leaving, and the studio forced to declare bankruptcy, it is beginning to look like the remake is never going to happen, at least not under the Relativity banner. And now it is about to get worse.
Because of the studio’s financial woes, director Corin Hardy is reportedly just steps away from walking out on the project, which has forced producer Edward Pressman to make the necessary moves to protect the film from being considered as an asset for the studio to sell. More on the story below.
It’s being reported that Andrea Riseborough is in negotiations with Relativity Studios to join the cast of the long in development remake of the 1994 cult classic The Crow.
Assuming a deal gets all worked out and ink meets page Riseborough will play a villain in the movie, a character named Top Dollar, who was played in the original movie by Michael Wincott. The character was the main villain in the first movie, but is not in the graphic novel the movies are based on by James O’Barr.
It was only a month ago that Relativity Studios’ planned remake of the 1994 cult classic The Crow got a new director in Corin Hardy, who replaced F. Javier Gutierrez, who’d been on the project since 2012. Many names had come up for the lead role, iconically portrayed by Brandon Lee, who died while filming the movie. The Avengers’ Tom Hiddleston and True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard were both considered at one time, until Dracula Untold star Luke Evanssigned on for the role.
Now, Evans has reportedly left the film to pursue other projects, according to The Wrap, who added that Relativity declined to comment for their story.
