The Crow reboot has had a hard time as of late (and in general). First, it lost Luke Evans in the titular role and then his replacement Jack Huston also dropped out. But now the latest blow to the troubled production looks set to be the final nail in the coffin. Potentially.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the rights to the film are no longer with Relativity Jam, but instead with Samuel Hadida’s Davis Films, Electric Shadow and Highland Film Group – all known for making relatively unknown or straight to DVD films. You know, like the awful Crow sequels we got in the 90’s?
With production expected to begin in January with Jason Momoa as the titular hero, this is likely going to set the schedule back somewhat. As it stands there isn’t actually any confirmation as to whether Momoa or the film’s director, Colin Hardy will actually be returning.
A lot of people are against the reboot, but personally, I don’t see it as that much of a problem. Our Editor-In-Chief actually wrote a pretty long article that makes some great points as to why it’s not a big deal (no disrepect to Brandon Lee).
The Crow reboot currently doesn’t have a release date, but it’s possible this new company will set one soon.
