Well, Hardy took to Twitter to let us all know writing: “I knew from the off, that the idea of making a new version of The Crow was never going to be for everyone because it is a beloved film. And I say that as someone in love with it myself. But I poured everything I had into the last 3.5 years of work, to try & create something which honoured what the Crow stood for; from James O’Barr’s affecting graphic novel, to Alex Proyas’s original movie, with great respect to Brandon Lee and with the desire to make something bold and new, that myself, as an obsessive fan, could be proud of. And with @prideofgypsies Jason Momoa and my amazing team of artists & film-makers, we came SO close. But sometimes, when you love something so much, you have to make hard decisions. And yesterday, deciding it was time to let go of this dark & emotional dream project, was the hardest decision of all. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever.”
Not only that but he shared a quick tease of Momoa in the famous black and white make-up. You can check out the teaser image below and then make sure to let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!
