Blade Director Remaking the Crow
For Stephen Norrington, “The Crow” deal marks the end of a long screen sabbatical. After making his breakthrough with “Blade,” Norrington took on “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.” Neither the director nor his star, Sean Connery, has made a film since.
Norrington said he felt [rightly -Ed.] demoralized by that experience, and the accomplished sculptor spent the next five years writing and working on his art.
“Whereas Proyas’ original was gloriously gothic and stylized, the new movie will be realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style,” Norrington told Daily Variety.
