‘The Crow’ lawsuit is settled, out of court, which means the remake could be back on track?





After almost a year of legal battles, the Weinsteins and Relativity Media have come to a settlement out of court on who owns the rights to the Crow. The lawsuit put the remake in jeopardy last year as Relativity wanted to go ahead with the remake, however the Weinsteins were not happy about the distribution of the film, claiming they owned the rights and should be the one’s to distribute it. It all got a bit messy, and if you are really interested, you can read our previous articles.

Yesterday Relativity Media issued a memo:

“The lawsuit between Relativity Media and The Weinstein Company concerning THE CROW has been amicably settled out of court, and the parties will continue to work on the film together as planned. In addition, Relativity Media has dismissed all of its claims against The Weinstein Company for any wrongdoing regarding the release and distribution of NINE, and The Weinstein Company has dismissed all of its claims against Relativity Media.”

So there you have it, the legal issues are sorted, and it sounds like the remake is set to carry on. We will update you of any news regarding this remake, if you are still interested?

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
