The Crow Reboot Delayed Again, Jason Momoa Might Not Be Involved

The Crow Reboot Delayed Again, Jason Momoa Might Not Be Involved

It looks as though "The Crow" remake has changed hands... Highland Film Group will also handle global sales. A consortium of companies - Davis Films, Highland Film Group, and Electric Shadow - have acquired the movie rights to The Crow from the beleaguered Relativity Media, although Relativity's CEO Ryan Kavanaugh will remain as an executive producer. It is unconfirmed at this time whether director Corin Hardy (The Hallow) is still attached nor has it been confirmed if former Game of Thrones and future Aquaman star Jason Momoa is still in talks for the lead role.

Pressman, who produced the 1994 original starring Brandon Lee, will produce The Crow Reborn alongside Samuel Hadida of Davis Films.

Should the remake ever get off the ground, it's said that it will present a more faithful adaptation of the original comic book from creator James O'Barr.

"The Crow remake has flown the Relativity coop", they revealed. Hardy left the project then returned, with The Wrap reporting back in September that The Crow was once again going ahead with Hardy back on board to direct and Jason Momoa starring.

The one thing we do know?

Principal photography was tentatively scheduled to begin January 2017. Relativity emerged from Chapter 11 in April. Or maybe this will be the move that finally kills the project for good, in which case everyone unhappy about The Crow Reborn can rejoice. Even if it is Eric Draven they're using again (and it's always been rumoured that they are; though the change of ownership in the title suggests that the template may change), good to see they're no longer giving us the impression they're adding white-out to Proyas's film and just writing a new version over the top of it - "Crow Reborn" suggests a continuation of earlier events or a whole new thing.
