Cave hired to rewrite The Crow…

Nick Cave has been hired to rewrite director Stephen Norrington’s reboot of The Crow.

Producer Ed Pressman has reportedly recruited Cave to rework Norrington’s script before the comic book adaptation goes in front of cameras later this year.

Cave has previously penned two films for fellow Australian filmmaker John Hillcoat, Ghosts… Of The Civil Dead and outback Western The Proposition.

The original Crow, released in 1994, centred on a murdered rock star who comes back from the dead to seek revenge on his killers.
