Jason Momoa In Talks For “The Crow”

He’s played Ronon Dex, Conan the Barbarian, Khal Drogo, and is currently filming his role as Aquaman – but actor Jason Momoa isn’t done playing tough guy heroes who don’t seem to speak much.

Mashable reports that the actor is in talks for the lead role of the long in the works “The Crow” remake. Momoa recently posted a photo of himself with the director Corin Hardy (“The Hallow”) on Instagram teasing a ‘dream job’ and that there was ‘great news to come.’

“The Crow” reboot has had a troubled history, often stalling during its pre-production phase with actors including Bradley Cooper, Luke Evans, Tom Hiddleston and Jack Huston all attached for weeks or months at a time before dropping out. The film rights were also in question due to Relativity’s bankruptcy filing earlier this year. That issue has now apparently been sorted out.

Comic creator James O’Barr previously indicated that the film will stick closer to the source material than any of the previous film adaptations. Momoa would play a murdered musician brought back from the dead by supernatural forces to claim his revenge.
