Nick Cave Rewriting The Crow

Nick Cave Rewriting The Crow

TheWrap has learned from producer Ed Pressman that Australian musician Nick Cave has been brought on board to rewrite Stephen Norrington’s script for The Crow reinvention.

Based on the comic created by James O’Barr, Norrington’s screenplay was set in two locations: “the southwest — the Mexico/Arizona area — and an urban [setting] — Detroit or Pittsburgh or something like that.”

Cave made his screenwriting debut with John Hillcoat’s 1988 prison drama Ghosts … of the Civil Dead and wrote Hillcoat’s The Proposition.

A 1994 adaptation, starring Brandon Lee, was directed by Alex Proyas.
