Having spent years in development hell before finally been scrapped, it looks as if Sony’s long-gestating reboot of The Crow is now back on.
Via Bloody Disgusting, the project is said to be back in “active development”. Right now, that’s literally all that we know about this new Crow offering.
Previously, Aquaman star Jason Momoa and The Hallow director Corin Hardy were on board for this Crow reboot before exiting the project ahead of Sony axing the film completely. Now, two years later, it looks as if The Crow is now once more getting ready to soar back to the silver screen.
Beginning life as a 1989 comic book tale from James O’Barr, The Crow centred on a figure who returns from the grave to seek vengeance on those who have wronged him.
That tale would be adapted into a Brandon Lee-headlined movie in 1994, with sequels following in the form of 1996’s The Crow: City of Angels, 2000’s The Crow: Salvation, 2005’s The Crow: Wicked Prayer, and the 1998 The Crow: Stairway to Heaven TV series. Elsewhere, there have been countless further comic tales and written works for the property.
For this reboot of The Crow, it’s believed that Samuel Hadida’s Davis Films, Highland Film Group, and Electric Shadow are still on board to finance, produce, and distribute the picture – although don’t be expecting Momoa or Hardy to be involved.
