In April last year came word of a dispute over the rights to “The Crow” franchise. At the time Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“28 Weeks Later”) was attached to direct a reboot of the property for Relativity Media .
Then The Weinstein Company, who distributed the original film through Miramax back in 1994, filed a lawsuit claiming there’s a contract giving them worldwide rights to the film.
Relativity shot back, bringing up the Weinstein’s poor handling of the critically drubbed musical which it produced. Nearly a year on, it seems both parties have decided to settle reports The Wrap.
In a joint statement, they say “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.”
