Sony Acquires “The Crow” Reboot, Jason Momoa May Still Star

The story of the much-in-development reboot of The Crow franchise is very long and frustrating indeed. The project hung out at Relativity Media for almost ten years, with various directors and actors (including Luke Evans) attached.

Now The Crow Reborn has ended up at Sony, and it looks like it even might get made this time. Corin Hardy (The Hallow) and Aquaman’s Jason Momoa were the most recent people attached to this project, and The Hollywood Reporter indicates that while they are not officially signed on with Sony for the film, “the plan does includes them coming on in the near term.”


Jason Momoa & Brandon Lee

The original 1994 The Crow was a cult hit that featured Brandon Lee in the title role; Lee tragically died on the set of the film after a stunt gone wrong. Three (much less successful) sequels followed, plus the short-lived TV series The Crow: Stairway To Heaven.

The reboot is described as a “more faithful adaptation” of the original 1989 indie comic by James O’Barr.
