“The Crow” is back from the dead.

The remake film’s producer Ed Pressman confirmed that the production will begin next year in the spring as he told The Hollywood Reporter at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.

He believed the remake of the film will generate plenty of interest for the new generation of moviegoers. The producer even remarked it’s the “anti-Spider-Man.”

“It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago,” he said. “But the generation today doesn’t even know ‘The Crow.’”

The revenge story follows Eric Draven who was brutally murdered and came back to life to avenge his and his fiancee’s murder.

Right now, actor Luke Evans is the current frontrunner to play the role which was played by the late Brandon Lee. Pressman claimed nothing about the casting is confirmed at this time.
