Gutierrez and Wigutow Attached to ‘The Crow’ Reboot

The legal battle between The Weinstein Company and Relativity is over, and The Crow reboot is looking like a foregone conclusion.

Director F. Javier Gutierrez and writer Jesse Wigutow have signed on to once again adapt the James O’Barr graphic novel about a slain musician resurrected for vengeance.

Gutierrez’s sci-fi debut Before the Fall has garnered him awards from bodies as diverse as the Cinema Writers Circle and Screamfest. He is currently in pre-production on an adaptation of The Monkey’s Paw.

Wigutow wrote the 2003 dramedy It Runs in the Family and the upcoming Irreparable Harm. He has also worked on the adaptations of Eragon and The Ruins.

Casting announcements are expected over the next few days.
