The rocket scientists at the movie studio believe that, all things being equal, "Familiar Name" will sell at least one more ticket than "Brand New Movie". They are correct in theory, but dead wrong about all things being equal.
Remaking the Crow will piss me off more than any remake thus far. I guess they could stick to the source material more, but the original film is pretty much perfect for the kind of movie it is.

I'm totally down with Hiddleston as the Crow, but I, also, would prefer they use a different story. The whole concept is made for different, unrelated storylines so it's sad that they feel like they have to do the first one over.
Why can't someone just make the one ****ing Nick Cave wrote? Goddammit.

Or the one Rob Zombie wrote.

THE CROW Remake Lands Luke Evans as Lead | Collider
Clearly they just want to get this one in...can't get first choice...keep looking. Oh well, Luke Evans(who) will do. NO optimism for this at all.

Eric Draven Is An Invisible Bible Quoting Cop In 'The Crow' Remake? -
You know...I saw the original last night, and the damned thing holds up so well. I know these calculated soulless remakes are the business model...but this one really seems blasphemous. It seems a terrible disservice that the legacy of Brandon Lee(and yes, I do realize there is a certain amount of 'so what' here) will be impacted by what looks like, from the start, is a terrible mess.

The Great Gatsby (2013) Movie Review | Film School Rejects
This movie irritates me in ways I cannot explain. From the look on smug 'littlemaninabigsuit' Leo's face to the absolute DERP look on Toby Maguire's, the Jay-Z produced soundtrack, the fact that it's 3d...so many annoyances. And the Grove has MASSIVE advertising all over the place to appeal to the vapid high end shoppers. I'd rather have a friggin Transformers marathon than this mercenary attempt to sell some sort of retro fashion disguised as a movie. **** you Great Gatsby!

Maybe the film's hollowness is Luhrmann's commentary on Gatsby? No? Okay.
