Stephen Norrington No Longer Directing THE CROW; Moves on to THE LAST PATROL

     October 22, 2010


Earlier this week, we reported that Mark Wahlberg had been offered the lead role in Stephen Norrington’s remake of The CrowComics2Film decided to ask Norrington about the rumor and he responded, “I don’t know about that story but I can tell you I’m no longer involved with The Crow.”  Norrington says an unnamed actor got involved and loved Norrington’s take, but then asked for a complete re-write of Norrington and Nick Cave’s script from a new writer.  However, Norrington implies that the unnamed actor wasn’t Wahlberg because he goes on to say, “I will say I think Wahlberg could be cool if they take a gritty blue-collar approach. He’s a truthful actor. I think he could really ground the supernatural stuff.”

Norrington, who hasn’t directed a film since the 2003 debacle The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, is moving on to another project he’s had in development: The Last Patrol.  As we previously reported, the film is “a supernatural action thriller set against the backdrop of World War II.”
