Trivia: When Jimmy is about to be brought back by the Crow, he has an eerie dream about Lily. If you listen carefully, you can hear two women whimpering in the background music/sounds. This particular sound effect is taken from the movie "Van Helsing" from the first scene to feature Dracula in color. (The only previous scene with him was black and white).
New this month Trivia: Although there were some plans for a potential fifth film, "The Crow: Wicked Prayer" ended up being the fourth and final entry in the original film franchise. A theatrical reboot of the series has been announced for a planned 2019 release - 14 years after the release of this film and 25 years after the release of the original.
New this month Trivia: The original script for this fourth entry in the series was titled "The Crow: Lazarus." It was about a wannabe rapper (who goes by the stage-name "Lazarus") who is murdered in a drive-by, and his journey to piece together the mystery of who set him up to be killed. The film was intended to be the first movie in the series with an African America lead, and controversial rapper Eminem was intended to play the villain. After the project fell apart, the script was hastily re-written to be (very) loosely based around a 2000 novel ("Wicked Prayer") inspired by the series, and the budget was drastically slashed, resulting in this film.
Question: Originally this fourth "Crow" film was going to be called "The Crow: Lazarus" and be about a black wannabe rapper who is brought back by the crow after a drive-by shooting. Anyone know why this plot was dropped? Because it seemed to fit the material more than a movie about Satan and God.
