Sony Pictures has picked up distribution rights to “The Crow” reboot which was previously in the works at Relativity for almost a decade.
Various directors and actors have been attached over the years, most notably Jason Momoa, Luke Evans and Jack Huston were linked to the title role.
The project’s fate was in limbo following the company filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company emerged from Chapter 11 in April, but previously attached helmer Corin Hardy is no longer involved.
The reboot is said to be a more faithful adaptation of the comic and follows a murder victim who returns from the dead, seeking vengeance on those who murdered him and his fiancee with the help of a mystical bird.
