Relativity has announced that Juan Carlos Fresnedillo has been hired to direct The Crow remake. The 28 Weeks Later director is expected to start filming in the fall of this year.
“Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is an incredibly talented and imaginative filmmaker,” says Executive Producer Tucker Tooley, “We are thrilled to have him at the helm and are excited to work with both Pressman and Apaches on what we all believe will be a compelling and innovative reimagining of The Crow.”
“The original Crow was groundbreaking cinema,” adds producer Edward R. Pressman, “Its gothic visual and musical ideas influenced a generation and cinema itself. With Juan Carlos, we have every confidence that his new Crow will have a similar impact on the contemporary audience.”
The Crow is being produced by Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh.
