James O'Barr has joined the big screen reboot of The Crow, as a consutant...

The long in gestation reboot of The Crow has been gradually edging forward, and it seems some real progress has been made of late. Luke Evans is now formally on board in the lead role, with F Javier Gutierrez set to direct the new movie. The plan is for formal production to start in early 2014.

Now we learn that James O'Barr, who created the original graphic novel of The Crow, has been hired. He's on board the project as a consultant on the movie, just in time for Comic-Con, where he's expected to talk about the film with fans. Timely, that.

How deep O'Barr's involvement will be remains to be seen. Being a consultant is far removed from writing or directing the movie, and the hope will be that it turns out to be more than just a ceremonial appointment. Time will tell.
