Bloody Disgusting reported yesterday, that a reboot of THE CROW is back in active development. Samuel Hadida’s Davis Films, Highland Film Group, and Electric Shadow are reportedly all still involved. We’ll let you know when we hear more. Stay tuned!
As you might remember, THE CROW reboot was supposed to start filming in Budapest back in 2018 with THE NUN director Corin Hardy and AQUAMAN star Jason Momoa. No word on if either of them will return for this new version. Again, we’ll keep you posted.
If you didn’t know the original film followed this synopsis:
The night before his wedding, musician Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) and his fiancée are brutally murdered by members of a violent inner-city gang. On the anniversary of their death, Eric rises from the grave and assumes the gothic mantle of the Crow, a supernatural avenger. Tracking down the thugs responsible for the crimes and mercilessly murdering them, Eric eventually confronts head gangster Top Dollar (Michael Wincott) to complete his macabre mission.
THE CROW (1994) was directed by Alex Proyas from a screenplay written by David J. Schow and John Shirley based on the character created by James O’Barr. Jeff Most produced along with Edward R. Pressman and Grant Hill. It starred Brandon Lee with Ernie Hudson and Michael Wincott. Dimension Films and Miramax Films released it back on May 13, 1994.
Sony recently has been having a track record for directors leaving certain projects over creative differences when you look at the Uncharted Video Game Adaption movie. I still don’t see THE CROW reboot happening right now just like I don’t see an Uncharted movie happening just yet. I’m not trying to be a negative Nancy it just seems like every time there’s a news report about these two movies there’s always some kind of drama with it. I’m excited as the next person about an Uncharted movie, but I’m going to be honest until they break production on Uncharted or THE CROW Reboot only then I can be excited for these two movies.
