A remake of The Crow has been talked about for several years now, with Jack Huston, Norman Reedus, Luke Evans and Tom Hiddleston all attached to the title role at some point, but nothing happened. Perhaps Brandon Lee’s accidental death whilst making the 1994 film put some people off. Not that long ago, it was reported that actor Jason Momoa, director Corin Hardy and producer Ed Pressman had all met up and were promising that big things would be happening soon. Now, Variety informs us that Sony have snapped up distribution rights for the film. With a major studio willing to throw lots of money at it, it seems that the project will finally happen now.
Though this will supposedly be more faithful to James O’ Barr’s graphic novel than the original movie, I can’t say that I’m looking forward to this myself, as the earlier film was just fine. Let’s just hope at least that they don’t go for a bloody ‘PG-13’ rating.
