Director Stephen Norrington has completed the screenplay for his reboot of The Crow and the project continues to move forward, according to producer Edward Pressman who offered some details on the film’s plot in an interview with MTV:
“The setting is the southwest — the Mexico/Arizona area — and an urban [setting], Detroit or Pittsburgh or something like that,” he described. “There are two locations that the film is set. Its initial platform is in the southwest and then it moves to the big city in the north, middle or eastern America, and then back.”
Pressman also adds that casting announcements are on the way and filming is on schedule to begin later this year.
“[We’ve got an offer out] to a major actor and things are moving ahead very aggressively, with the aim of doing the film this year,” Pressman told MTV News.
