Well, after years in development hell, there’s now seemingly a new plan of attack for the long-mooted reboot of The Crow.
Previously, Relativity were the ones handling this upcoming redo, with The Hallow’s Corin Hardy to direct. In addition to this, following the likes of Luke Evans, Bradley Cooper, Tom Hiddleston and Jack Huston being up for the titular Crow gig, the most recent stories saw Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa in advanced talks to headline the film.
Now though, The Hollywood Reporter has word that The Crow has left Relativity and will instead be developed by Davis Films, Highland Film Group and Electric Shadow. This, of course, comes in the aftermath of Relativity filing for bankruptcy earlier this year. There’s no news yet on whether Hardy is still on board to direct, or whether Momoa is still in talks for the effort.
Rather than a straight-up remake of Alex Proyas’ beloved 1994 Brandon Lee-starring movie, series creator James O’Barr has previously talked about how this new movie will stick closer to the original source material.
The Crow began life as a four-part miniseries back in 1989, with Proyas’ film following five years later. After that, we were given three further movies – The Crow: City of Angles, The Crow: Salvation and The Crow: Wicked Prayer – and the ’98 TV series, The Crow: Stairway to Heaven.
