Sony Pictures Has Reportedly Come Aboard Reboot ‘The Crow Reborn’

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.

      The Crowniverse?

      • Grimphantom

        You know they will do it. Already doing a mess with Spider-Man’s villains….

  • GunsOfNavarone

    Sony Pictures… when you’ve exhausted every other avenue.

    Whatever sliver of hope I had for this just died. Sony being involved killed it.

    Can’t wait to see Erica Draven, the first female Crow.

      There’s like 3 in the comics. It’s just people who died with unfinished business being resurrected by a supernatural crow, there’s gonna be women

      I know you’re trying to be funny, but I wouldn’t mind seeing a woman come back from the dead as the Crow. It’s not unheard of and it would make for a great sequel. Instead of this mindless remake of a movie we’ve already seen

    Who hasn’t been attached to The Crow remake? Remember when Bradley Cooper was going to be the lead like almost a decade ago? That thing has been talked about for nearly as long as the live action Akira.

      Oi, what have I told you about posting our private tapes?

    I just don’t care anymore…let it rest. It’s not going to top the original.

  • Growing up in a town of brown outs during psn updates makes me want to apply makeup in a dress store.

    Does anybody have respect for Brandon Lee’s legacy? I know that O’Barr created this and it’s his baby but still can we leave it alone, please?

    Doesn’t sound too bad actually. And Jason Momoa is pretty great for that role… With Sony it’s a 50/50 chance that this will be good. Ghostbusters reboot = terrible, Spiderman reboot = amazing.
