The Crow Reborn Wont Be Brought to Term
The remake to The Crow, the 90’s cult classic that spawned an untold number of kid’s awkward high school goth phases, has been under the remake cross hairs for years. Lately the remake, titled Reborn had really started pushing the project through, hiring on award-winning indy short film director Corin Hardy (The Hollow, Butterfly) to direct the film, as well as casting star Jason Momoa (Conan: The Barbarian, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding) to replace Brandon Lee in the role of Eric Draven in what was promised to be a more faithful adaptation of the classic comic by James O’Barr.
This film as been on the table to be remade for years, prompting hate from those who grew up on the original, excitement from a younger generation that believes the original has aged badly, and doubt and confusion from everyone else about the casting of Jason Momoa (Stargate: Atlantis) as the titular character and still do a faithful adaptation to the comic book. Well as of Thursday, all of those voices were silenced as the remake once again came to a crashing halt. With Sony about to pull it’s support of the film, both Corin Hardy and Jason Mamoa (Johnson Family Vacation) officially backed out of the project entirely.
The film now returns to it’s place in limbo, awaiting for another studio to pick it up and give it another shot Sony officially backed out of the project entirely, just as the director anticipated. The film was originally slated for an October 2019 release.
