After years and years in development hell with the troubled Relativity, TheWrap is reporting that Davis Films, Highland Film Group and Electric Shadow have acquired the rights to finance, produce and distribute The Crow Reborn, a reboot of the cult classic franchise.
Scheduling for the film is up in the air but the group hopes to maintain the same pace the film was on, an individual familiar with the project told the site.
Relativity had been targeting a January shoot with The Hallow‘s Corin Hardy still attached to direct, we can confirm exclusively. There was a recent report also citing that Jason Momoa, the “Game of Thrones” alum who plays Aquaman in the upcoming DC comics films, in talks to star. No word on his attachment. An official announcement on the film is imminent, we’re told.
Many people have been attached as the lead role of Eric Draven, such as Bradley Cooper, Luke Evans, and Jack Huston, although all have since moved on since the film has been through such a tumultuous history.
The Crow follows Eric Draven, who returns from the dead to track down his killers and avenge his murdered fiancé with the help of a mystical bird.
