In a press release, Relativity Media has announced that Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will direct the remake of 1994 film.

Relativity Media has chosen Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to serve behind the lens for "The Crow" reboot. In a press release, Tucker Tooley, executive producer of the film, has made it official that the "28 Weeks Later..." director is chosen to helm the project.

"Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is an incredibly talented and imaginative filmmaker," Tooley said. "We are thrilled to have him at the helm and are excited to work with both Pressman and Apaches on what we all believe will be a compelling and innovative reimagining of 'The Crow'."

Although the helmer for the upcoming film has been chosen, the characters are yet to be cast. Tooley said, "Fresnadillo will collaboratively develop the script once a writer is attached to adapt the screenplay. Casting has not yet been announced."

The film tells a story about a man who is brutally murdered, but comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancee's murder. Written by Nick Cave and Stephen Norrington, the action thriller movie is scheduled to be released in 2012.

Spanish Fresnadillo served behind the lens in addition to providing the script for 2007's "Wednesday". He is currently giving the finishing touches to "Intruders", which stars Clive Owen and Daniel Bruhl.
