For the last several years now, a reboot of The Crow has been in various stages of development. Most recently, we heard that Corin Hardy (The Nun) was set to direct, with Jason Momoa (Aquaman) attached to star; that’s apparently still the plan… with Sony now on board.
Tracking Board reports today that Sony Pictures has signed on to distribute The Crow Reborn worldwide, this according to multiple inside sources.
“While it’s a bit unclear whether Jason Momoa and Corin Hardy remain attached to respectively star in and direct the film,” the site notes, “insiders suggest both men are still part of the studio’s plan.”
The Crow Reborn is being described as a reboot as well as a more faithful adaptation of the original graphic novel written by James O’Barr.
Samuel Hadida’s Davis Films, Highland Film Group and Electric Shadow previously acquired the rights to finance, produce and distribute the film.
Edward R. Pressman, who produced the original 1994 film starring Brandon Lee, will produce The Crow Reborn alongside Hadida and Kevin Misher of Misher Films. Highland Film Group and Electric Shadow are also producing, with HFG handling international sales. The movie was developed by Pressman and Relativity.
