James O’Barr has signed on to work as a consultant on the upcoming The Crow reboot starring Luke Evans.

According to Bloody Disgusting, the creator has been signed on by Relativity and will join director F Javier Gutierrez at a panel promoting the film at the San Diego Comic-Con.

O’Barr released a statement saying: “It is important for Crow fans to understand that Relativity, Javier, Luke and the entire team are working on a new adaptation of the book itself. I believe that this movie will stand alongside Brandon and his film as a valid work of art, and I look forward to collaborating on the project.”

The Crow reboot will go into production early next year. You can buy The Crow on Blu-ray for £6.17 at
