F. Javier Gutierrez to Direct, Jesse Wigutow to Write ‘The Crow’ Remake

5276617.jpgRelativity Media’s remake of The Crow, only recently cleared to move forward after the settlement of a legal spat with The Weinstein Company, gathered momentum today with the hiring of both a director and writer. Deadline.com reports that Spanish director F. Javier Gutierrez (Before the Fall) will helm the update of the 1994 gothic horror flick, while Jesse Wigutow, a newcomer with a number of as-yet-unproduced projects to his credit will pen the script.

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo had previously been slated to direct with Bradley Cooper attached to star. Cooper dropped out of the project in August of last year; Fresnadillo followed soon thereafter.
