I hadn’t realized Nick Cave had turned into Ben Stiller’s character from Anchorman.
Joking aside, it was reported today by numerous affiliates that Nick Cave, former frontman for The Birthday Party and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, as well as actor and acclaimed author, has been selected to write the script for James O’Barr’s The Crow film reboot. Now, I remember a few years ago, Stephen Norrington (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) was supposed to helm the gothic anti-hero, but nothing’s been heard from that camp in quite sometime.
Having Cave pen the script is, for lack of a better word, sublime, in my opinion.
Of course it’s hard to think of The Crow movies and not also associate the strange death of film star Brandon Lee. It’s been almost twenty years since the incident, and with two more than sub-par sequels, I think it’s time again to let this bird fly.
