Relativity Studios is flying from director to director attempting to get their long-gestured The Crow remake off the ground. Who’s the latest?
Corin Hardy is the latest name to take on James O’Barr’s “The Crow,” which you think would be an easy task, considering their rebooting directly from the graphic novel.
The Crow is about a murdered man who comes back for revenge, which was first brought to the screen by director Alex Proyas and the late actor Brandon Lee.
Deadline explains that Hardy replaces F. Javier Gutiérrez, who was attached but signed on to the direct the next installment of The Ring franchise. That made him unavailable to helm The Crow, which is slated for a spring production start with a script by Cliff Dorfman.
Hardy made his live action feature directing debut on The Hallow, a film that will be released next year and before that he drew acclaim for helming the animated short “Butterfly” (watch this below) and for directing music videos for the likes of Ed Sheeran, Biffy Clyro, Keane, Paolo Nutini and The Prodigy.
