“The Crow” Reboot Collapses Again

Actor Jason Momoa has revealed in an Instagram post that the long-gestating “The Crow” remake has, once again, fallen apart.

Momoa shared a photo of himself with filmmaker Corin Hardy, who was to direct, with both now departing the project. Reasons for the collapse are said to be due to financial issues between producer Samuel Hadida and Sony Pictures, which was to have distributed the movie.

Earlier this year, Sony set a release date of October 11th 2019, needless to say that’s no longer happening. Momoa says in his post:

“I’ve waited eight years to play this dream role. I love you @corinhardy and @sonypictures unfortunately I may have to wait 8 more. Not our team,” he wrote. “But I swear I will. James O’Barr sorry to let you down I won’t on the next. This film needs to be set free. And to the fans. Sorry. I can’t play anything but what this film deserves and it needs love. I’m ready when it’s right.”

The story, based on James O’Barr’s indie comic, follows a man brought back from the dead in order to avenge the death of his girlfriend, as well as his own. The previous 1994 Alex Proyas-directed film became a cult hit, infamous for its star Brandon Lee being killed in a tragic on-set accident.
