Hey, remember The Crow?  Well guess what, they’re remaking it.  And it’s going to be directed by none other than that guy who did A League of Extraordinary Gentleman (see clip below).

For Stephen Norrington, “The Crow” deal marks the end of a long screen sabbatical. After making his breakthrough with “Blade,” Norrington took on “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.” Neither the director nor his star, Sean Connery, has made a film since.

Norrington said he felt [rightly –Ed.] demoralized by that experience, and the accomplished sculptor spent the next five years writing and working on his art.

“Whereas Proyas’ original was gloriously gothic and stylized, the new movie will be realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style,” Norrington told Daily Variety.

That’s right, accomplished sculptor.  He started out sculpting creature effects and now he gets to direct movies.  This is basically like going to the dentist and getting your fillings re-done by the guy who built the chair.  Who has a faux hawk and wears an earring shaped like a feather.
