The 25 Most Influential People in Comic Book Movies: #20 Jeff Most

Jeff MostIn the early 1990s, producer Jeff Most believed so much in the quality and marketability of James O’Barr’s comic that he committed to producing The Crow for the screen.  A television series and three feature length sequels later, Jeff Most has remained loyal to the Crow’s cause.  Most served as producer for The Crow, The Crow: City of Angels (written by #5 David S. Goyer), The Crow: Salvation, and The Crow: Wicked Prayer (for which he also co-wrote the screenplay), as well as executive producer for certain episodes of the television series “The Crow: Stairway to Heaven.” He also oversaw the music production on all four Crow movies.  Most has persevered through these films with the help of a strong cult following through 2005, despite increasingly poor critical reviews following the first Crow film and the tragic death of star Brandon Lee during the filming of The Crow.  In a July 6, 2005 interview with joblo.com, Most announced that he would be producing a film adaptation of Everette Hartsoe’s Razor comic book series.
