For what feels like the umteenth time, a fresh attempt is underway to reboot The Crow.
This one’s been a saga and a half. For over a decade now, there have been plans to put together a reboot of The Crow. It’s got close a few times, but the financial problems at Relativity Media (which was backing the project) led to it falling apart in 2016. Then, The Nun helmer Corin Hardy got close to getting the film going in 2018, before the plug was ultimately pulled.
Now, though, in comes a new bunch of people to try and make it happen. Still involved are believed to be Davis Film and the Highland Film Group. No longer with Jason Momoa star in the film, though, and Sony Pictures – that nearly greenlit the movie – has backed away from the project too. Furthermore, director Corin Hardy is likely to give it a miss too.
The latest attempt to reboot will go back to the Jack O’Barr comic source material. No word yet on a new screenwriter or director for the project, yet alone who will play the lead role of Eric Draven. But as we hear more, we’ll keep you posted. Just, as we’ve learned many times before, it’s not worth holding your breath for this one just yet…
