UPDATE: New Lawsuit Ruffles The Crow's Feathers





What is it about The Crow movies that keeps them mired in controversy? Has any of them ever gone off without a hitch? A new dispute over the rights to the planned Crow remake between Relativity Media and The Weinsteins has just hit our radar. Read on for the details.

Deadline now reports that attorney Bert Fields is repping Harvey and Bob's The Weinstein Co. against Ryan Kavanaugh's Relativity Media, claiming there's "a written contract signed by everybody" which gives the Weinsteins worldwide distribution rights on The Crow.

Should the film actually end up happening now, director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will be at its helm. We'll keep an eye on things for you, but for right now ... wings clipped.

UPDATE 4:50 PM Pacific time:

A Relativity-issued statement has just come our way. Read on:

"This is yet another typical litigation stunt from the Weinsteins, who have a long history of threatening lawsuits with the sole purpose of intimidation. If served, Relativity will seek immediate dismissal. While we expect these types of antics from the Weinsteins, we are shocked that a lawyer of Mr. Fields' caliber would make such false, reckless and intentionally harmful statements to the press about Relativity and Mr. Kavanaugh. We intend to seek appropriate remedies for this misconduct.

Clearly this is a feeble attempt to create a press stir and a malicious effort to interfere with Relativity's development of the project."

Stay tuned, kids!

Well Miramax and Dimension has released all of the previous films. Depends though on if their option is still valid after so many years after the last film.
