Wanna talk about cursed? Look no further than The Crow. The latest entry into the franchise has had more trouble getting started than just about any other film I can think of. That being said, The Wrap is reporting that the film’s woes may be coming to an end.
According to the site, Relativity’s The Crow reboot will begin production this January. News broke last month that Jason Momoa (“Game of Thrones,” Aquaman) was in talks to star in the reboot, which Colin Hardy is directing. Momoa recently posted a photo of himself with Hardy on Instagram with the hashtag “#sealthedeal.”
The Crow reboot will be a new adaptation of James O’Barr’s cult classic comic book that was originally adapted for the 1994 film starring Brandon Lee and directed by Alex Proyas.
Like the original, the story follows Eric Draven, a murder victim who returns from the dead, seeking vengeance on those who murdered him and his fiancée with the help of a mystical bird. However, rather than a recreation of Proyas’ film, The Crow reboot is said to be a more faithful adaptation of the comic book source material.
Relativity is emerging from bankruptcy, and The Crow reboot is a priority project for the studio as it looks to rebuild its reputation in Hollywood.
