The script for the new Crow film is going to attempt to tap into those raw emotions once again. Supposedly, the remake will be “emotional and brutal” and this raises a pertinent question.
Will the film turn out to be a raw, R-rated film? A “raw” film would indicate more serious themes. The comic book mini-series that launched The Crow was dark, depressing, and violent. Bringing an adult-oriented Crow to the screen could prove to be a bad decision, said Slow Venture. According to tumblr.com, the first Sin City film reflected a R-rated comic adaptation that made money. The sequel died miserably. The very R-rated comic adaptation Old Boy was another mega flop. Pushing the hard R limits in a Cow film might be a bad idea. A lot of mainstream viewers could be turned off although the hardcore fans might enjoy the approach.
Honestly, we might never know how a Crow film is going to turn out. The project has been delayed so much it may never end up being produced. What a shame it would be if this happened since The Crow really does deserve a reboot.
