‘The Crow’ Reboot Producer Confirms The Film Will Be R-Rated

CrowIt’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about The Crow reboot titled The Crow Reborn but now Rings director F. Javier Gutiérrez who is producing the picture has assured fans of the original that the reboot will be R-rated.

In a recent chat with Forbes to promote the upcoming home release of Rings, Gutiérrez explained that while he isn’t completely sure what is going on with the project, the reboot — which reportedly has a budget of $40 million — will not tone down the subject matter from the original film or the source material to make for a PG-13 rating:

“With The Crow, I haven’t talked to them in a while so I don’t know what is going on with that, but we are going to do an R-rated movie. I come from Europe, I’m very dark so I’m going to go for it. If any movie has to be R-rated then it’s The Crow. That’s how I got James O’Barr, the creator of The Crow, involved in the project because he said that if R-rated is the way that I wanted to go, he’s in. Even though I’m not directing it now, when I was going to be doing that I explained to the producers that they had to read and understand the comic book and not make the film a PG-13 version because it would make no sense. Some movies are for young people, I get it and maybe you can do it, but this movie is not necessarily for those young people and toning it down would give you a ghost of what The Crow should be.”

Jason Momoa, Aquaman and Khal Drogo himself is rumored to star with Colin Hardy directing the project. The original film directed by Alex Proyas starred Brandon Lee and told the story of a rock musician named Eric Draven who is revived from the dead to avenge his own death as well as the rape and murder of his fiancée. The reboot is said to be a more faithful adaptation of the original graphic novel written by James O’Barr.

Even some non-theatrical films get in on the fun, like Netflix’s War Machine starring Brad Pitt.

    Can’t see how that’s possible, seeing as how they don’t have a script yet.

    • Cinephilia Lovegood

      They do have both screenplays completely finished. They have for months. Just because the actors haven’t seen it yet doesn’t imply anything. Marvel won’t give out two full scripts to actors who will only be in a small chunk of it…no production of this magnitude does. Renner and Olsen haven’t seen it because they’ve been doing other things and don’t begin filming for a while. If they want to read them, they would have to go and read it on the lot in Burbank or at the studio in Atlanta. And Spider-Man: Homecoming is doing additional photography in Atlanta…he’s not shooting Avengers. Not yet.

      • SAMURAI36

        Really? That’s interesting. Especially since that’s not what the reports say. The general consensus is that they were working on SEVERAL drafts as late as fall of last year. Do you have evidence that the script was done months ago?

        • Cinephilia Lovegood

          I don’t know what reports came out that are contradictory, but the way Marvel has learned to give themselves the best chance is they won’t enter pre-production without a draft they’re satisfied with. And they won’t shoot without one they deem worthy. They still rewrite throughout the process and will continue to do so, but its only polishing, which they will continue to do as long as it makes it better.

          • SAMURAI36

            You’re talking about what Marvel would usually do, and not what they are actually doing. You said they had a screenplay done months ago. That’s not accurate. I’d implore you to go on line and look this info up for yourself.

            Are you a Marvel employee?

    • Axxell

      LOL! Oh Sammy…What a bitter old life you live…As if all these actors are being called on set to sit in a chair while the script is being written…
