Some potentially very good news for all of you fans of the 1994 cult classic, The Crow, which has been in the news quite often lately with a remake in the works through Relativity Media.

According to reports, The Weinstein Company, headed by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, have decided to file a lawsuit against Ryan Kavanaugh and Relativity, and that it’s now been submitted to the court. They claim that they have contracts that are “signed by everyone” that declare their exclusive ownership of all distribution rights to The Crow from their days with Miramax.

Just a few days ago it was reported that Juan Carlos Fresnadillo had been hired to direct Relativity Media’s remake of the 1994 cult classic, The Crow.

It was expected that things would begin moving forward a bit more rapidly now, and it does appear this is the case. Deadline is reporting that Bradley Cooper, star of The Hangover and The A-Team, has entered into early negotiations to take on the title role originally played by the late Brandon Lee.

The movie tells the story of a musician who’s savagely beaten and killed when he and his fiancee are attacked. He then finds himself resurrected and sets off on a quest to find and destroy all who were responsible for he and his love’s deaths.

A new director has been grabbed for the long-planned remake/reboot of the 1994 cult classic, The Crow, which is best-recognized as the movie that star Brandon Lee was accidentally killed while filming.

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who’s best-known work is the zombie sequel 28 Weeks Later, has been hired for the job. Fresnadillo was also in the news not too long ago when he was brought in to replace Gore Verbinski on the proposed BioShock video game movie, but that project has fallen apart since then and is now waiting for someone to put it back together.

The movie tells the story of a musician who’s attacked and killed while with his fiancee. He then is brought back to life and seeks vengeance.

‘BioShock’ Movie Still Coming; Hard R-Rating Guaranteed

The Movie God   |  @   |

We’ve only heard a few big announcements over the past couple of years in regards to a movie adaptation of the immensely popular video game title, BioShock. It’s been almost a year since the last update, but producer Gore Verbinski is back to remind us that the movie is still very real, and slowly making its way toward our eyes.

It all started in May of 2008 when we found out that Verbinski, best known for helming the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, would be directing the BioShock movie. The news was pretty exciting when considering how much experience Verbinski has with water-heavy productions — water being a crucial element to the underwater world of Rapture. Unfortunately, the cost of making BioShock into a movie was starting to balloon (around $160 million), and filming overseas to cut costs became the new gameplan. Verbinski, with other projects in the works including his animated film Rango, decided that this schedule would not work and had to drop out of the film.

Real BioShock #4

The feature film adaptation of instant classic video game BioShock has been in and out of the news multiple times with the hiring of Gore Verbinski to direct, and then followed by his unfortunate departure and the announcement that Juan Carlos Fresnadillo would be taking his place.

Until we finally get to see what amazing or abominable paths they take with that live-action movie, we could once only imagine what a living and breathing Rapture might look like. Well, thankfully there’s some pretty talented artists out there on our planet and one of them, named Harrison Krix, has done a damn fine job in helping to show us this real BioShock. Krix and his Volpin Props (Head here to see a bunch of amazingly detailed props) created a fantastic replication of a Big Daddy, added a Little Sister, and brought them to Dragon*Con. While that was all well and fun, it wasn’t enough, and they went ahead and set up an arrangement to shoot some photographs with Dim Horizons at the Georgia Aquarium. Once they were finally able to get in for the shoot, the result was a very cool set of images of the Big Daddy and Little Sister in a tunnel surrounded by water and ocean life resembling the dark world of Rapture.

Click over to the other side to take a peek at some of these BioShock photographs. You can head over to the respective sites for more images. Also added below is a video from Dragon*Con where you can see the Big Daddy’s drill in action.

BioShock

The ups and downs of turning the instant classic video game BioShock into a successful film adaptation are continuing right along. It’s being reported that Universal has chosen Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to replace Gore Verbinski as director on the movie.

Excitement encased the world of geekdom when it was first revealed that Verbinski would be directing the water-heavy BioShock after his impressive water work on the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. Verbinski actually stepped away from the proposed fourth Pirates flick in order to helm the challenging video game adaptation. When a swelling price tag ($160 Million) saw the project placed on the back burner in order to figure out a new, more cost-friendly attack strategy, it became apparent that shooting in an overseas location might be the best option. Verbinski, having other projects going on, was unable to meet the scheduling demands, and thus, stepped away.
