THE CROW Remake Loses its Star and Director…Again

Categories Film, Uncategorized

Another movie based on The Crow has been in development off-and-on for the past decade. This reimagining of the James O’Barr graphic novel has struggled to lock down a cast and director, with actors like Bradley Cooper and Luke Evans being attached and suddenly exiting.

Most recently, Sony picked up the film, titled The Crow Reborn, with an October 2019 date set. Jason Momoa was cast as Eric Draven, with Corin Hardy hired to direct. However, they have now dropped out too.

According to Deadline, Jason Momoa and Corin Hardy have formally exited The Crow Reborn. The site says this was the result of creative and financial differences with Samuel Hadida, whose Davis Films is a financier. The movie was deep into pre-production, with filming scheduled to begin in five weeks.

Momoa confirmed the news on Instagram today. While the Aquaman star says that Eric Draven is his dream role, he won’t do it unless it’s done right. He also shared a glimpse of concept art and makeup from the planned film.

This marks the latest in a long line of failed attempts to get The Crow back on the big screen. Who knows if any future attempts will be successful. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
