The Crow Returns: Remake Pays Tribute to Brandon Lee's Tragic Loss

The new upcoming film remake from the original The Crow (1994), the latest supernatural superhero thriller “The Crow” is directed by Rupert Sanders and starring Bill Skarsgård, but not directed by the same film as the original.

The original film director, Alex Proyas, wrote on Facebook, “I don’t get any joy from seeing negativity about fellow filmmakers’ work.”

Alex Proyas “And I’m certain the cast and crew had all good intentions, as we all do on any film. So it pains me to say anything more about this topic, but I think the fan’s response speaks volumes. [‘The Crow’] is not just a movie.

Added: Brandon Lee died making it, and it was finished as a testament to his lost brilliance and tragic loss. It is his legacy. That’s how it should remain.”

Hong Kong-American martial artist and son of actor Bruce Lee, Lee, was murdered with a prop gun on the set in 1993 at the age of 28. As mentioned, he hoped his film could serve as a tribute to Lee.

In his Facebook post, Sanders published an article last month that was also linked to CBR.com: “Brandon was an original voice, and I think he will always be synonymous with The Crow. I hope he’s proud of what we’ve done and how we’ve brought the story back again.

Added: His soul is very much alive in this film. There’s a real fragility and beauty to his version of the Crow, and I think Bill feels like he is a successor to that”

Sanders said his version was true in an interview with Vanity Fair. “Obviously, it was a tragedy, and it’s definitely something that we’ve always had in mind through the making of the film,” Sanders said.

“Brandon was an original voice, and I think he will always be synonymous with The Crow, and I hope he’s proud of what we’ve done and how we’ve brought the story back again. His soul is very much alive in this film.

Continues my adding: There’s a real fragility and beauty to his version of the Crow, and I think Bill feels like he is a successor to that”

The story follows James O’Barr’s comics about his fiancee being resurrected to seek vengeance. Several of his films are based on subsequent sequels to the 1994 film, including The Crow: City of Angels ( 1996), The Crow: Salvation (2000), and The Crow: Wicked Prayer (2005).
