    Juan Carlos Fresnadillo Won’t Take Flight With ‘The Crow’ > The Playlist

    Poor Eric Draven. No one wants to bring him back to life. The long gestating reboot of “The Crow” is once again on the skids, as a director has, once again, left the project.

    Just to recap, the reboot started off promisingly with a script by Nick Cave, though with the worrisome choice of Stephen “I Made Sean Connery Retire” Norrington in the director’s chair (he was the dude behind the terrible “League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen”). Unfortunately (or fortunately) that version never got off the ground and it was in essence started over, with “28 Weeks Later” helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo signing on in April with Cave’s script out (boo!) and “Watchmen” writer Alex Tse taking over. Even more, Bradley Cooper was lining up for the lead role, but a lawsuit from the Weinsteins threw a spanner in the works (it has been since resolved), Cooper lined up “Paradise Lost” and with movement seemingly at a standstill, Twitch reports that Fresnadillo is moving on.
    Everyone keeps bailing on this... not a good sign.

    Maybe the studio should bring the Nick Cave screenplay back onto the table.

    I won't argue that with you at all, but... as a concept it doesn't seem like it's something that should be hard to do well.

    Graphic Novel In The Dust Planned For Film Adaptation - ShockTillYouDrop.com

    In the Dust, an upcoming graphic novel from Top Cow, has been planned for a feature film adaptation, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

    The comic (the release of which has not yet been solicited by the publisher), offers an alternate history of 1930's Chicago wherein Dust Bowl storms are secretly a means by which vampires can travel and ravage wherever they wind up. The lead character is a G-Man investigating the sweeping attacks who is forced to team with Al Capone and his men.
    Priest meets Boardwalk Empire...this'll do well. Sheesh.

    Fox Orders Pilot for THE PUNISHER TV Series

    Marvel’s The Punisher flopped twice at the box office (even though the second movie is great) but they haven’t given up on the murderous vigilante. According to Deadline, Criminal Minds showrunner Ed Bernero has adapted the comic for a pilot commitment from Fox. The series would be an “an hour-long procedural” which would see Frank Castle (aka The Punisher) “as a rising star detective with the New York Police Department” who moonlights as a vigilante, “seeking justice for those the system has failed.” This character is also known as Dexter Morgan or Daredevil. Seriously, why not just adapt Daredevil? That movie flopped too and instead of cop procedural, you’d have a courtroom procedural. The unoriginality of network TV would prevail! Fox is also developing a series based on the DC comics hero The Spectre. I hope the character’s day job is in a hospital.
    A simple idea. Punisher = kill man's family+guns, lots of guns...yet, the minds of marvel just cannot get it right.

    Universal Picking Up Mark Millar's 'War Heroes'

    THR says that Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, currently writing Doctor Strange for Marvel, are in talks to write.

    The film would be about “a U.S. military experimental program, developed in light of dwindling enlistments and the expanding war on terrorism, that gives ordinary soldiers superpowers. When a rogue group of the super-soldiers breaks off to form a criminal enterprise, one hero rises from their ranks to prevent catastrophic results.”
    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but... I don't remember this book ever being finished.
