The Crow reboot loses it's director, who should take it over?


In April of this year, I posted about a reboot to the cult classic, The Crow.  The original starred Brandon Lee, the son of the legendary, Bruce Lee.  There were a few actors that were rumored to take over the lead role, but nothing confirmed.  Bradley Cooper was the closest to starring in the reboot.  But there was a director set in stone, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.  Not anymore.

Fresnadillo didn't give a specific reason why he was leaving, but there is one idea.  He has been hired for a different reboot, Highlander.  With The Crow reboot taking awhile to take off, I'm sure he figured moving on to the fast tracked Highlander was the way to go.  So who should take it over?  My two cents go towards Joe Carnahan.

Carnahan directed big budget movies like The A-Team and Smokin' Aces.  But those are not examples of why he could handle The Crow.  For that you'd have to go back to Narc.  His 2002 police thriller.  It was dark, and dirty and told a terrific story.  THAT kind of director needs to retell this reboot.  We'll have to see what happens.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again... Milla Jovovich for a female Crow!
