Sony Pictures has officially dated their long-delayed The Crow reboot for October 11, 2019, which suggests filming could begin this year.
The Hallow‘s Corin Hardy is completing work on Atomic Monster and New Line Cinema’s Conjuring spinoff, The Nun, which is set for release later this year. In the meantime, he’s been teasing his social followers with photos of several meetings with Jason Momoa, who is set to star as the title character.
“The Crow” comic book creator James O’Barr is actively involved in the reboot, tentatively titled The Crow Reborn, which is described as a more faithful adaptation of the original graphic novel.
The Crow follows Eric Draven (who would be played by Momoa), who returns from the dead to track down his killers and avenge his murdered fiancé with the help of a mystical bird.
Samuel Hadida’s Davis Films, Highland Film Group and Electric Shadow previously acquired the rights to finance, produce and distribute the film.
