The Crow Reboot Production Start Teased by Jason Momoa

The Crow Reboot Production Start Teased by Jason Momoa
Sony Pictures' long-awaited project The Crow Reborn may be finally ready to go before cameras, after delays that spanned multiple years and even multiple studios. Sony Pictures picked up the rights to The Crow Reborn back in September, and the last we heard on this project was a few weeks ago, when The Crow comic book creator James O'Barr stated that The Crow reboot pre-production will start in February, but an actual shooting date wasn't given. However, Jason Momoa sent out an image of some Crow artwork with the following message that seems to indicate shooting may start earlier than planned.

"I've been waiting for sooooo long. @corinhardy let's do this brother aloha j."

While Jason Momoa doesn't exactly come right out and say that shooting is starting soon, it seems that he's definitely ready to get started. Perhaps the actor is just expressing his enthusiasm for the project and

Jason Momoa Teases The Crow Reboot, Production Starts Soon

Can The Crow remake (now titled The Crow Reborn) ever take flight in Hollywood? That’s a question that’s plagued said reimagining for years, as Relativity’s horror/fantasy pic ricocheted from one director to another in what quickly became a truly torrid saga of false hope and non-starts.

It was during this time that Jack Huston, Luke Evans, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star Bradley Cooper all came attached to the part of Eric Draven – a role that was originally brought to life by Brandon Lee all those years ago – at various stages, only to drop out before The Crow remake could garner a sense of momentum. And that’s before you even factor in Relativity’s financial woes, which resulted in the project uprooting for a new home at Davis Films, Highland Film Group, and Electric Shadow.

Between them, those three parties have pledged their combined support to the re-adaptation,

Original Crow Sequel Almost Had a Female Lead

Original Crow Sequel Almost Had a Female Lead
Though it was more than twenty years ago, The Crow remains an incredibly influential and respected comic book movie. James O'Barr created the comic that the movie was based on and is involved in The Crow remake, which has been in the works for some time. He was also involved in a sequel that was never made. In a recent interview, O'Barr reveals that he wrote a treatment for a female-led The Crow sequel and it sounds an awful lot like Kill Bill. Here's what he had to say about it.

"My intention was to take it to a completely different direction. So I wrote a story that was a based on a little incident that happened in Chicago about a woman who was killed at her wedding. I remember reading it in the paper and it was just a horrible tragedy. Some Irish gangsters tried to rob a main

The Crow Creator James O’Barr Recalls The Sequel That Never Came To Be

From City of Angels to Stairway to Heaven, Alex Proyas’ cult horror flick The Crow inspired a smattering of sequels across screens big and small.

None of them were particularly memorable, of course, as they failed to capture the look and feel of their predecessor – not to mention the fact that the late Brandon Lee left some pretty big boots to fill. But that didn’t stem the tide, and in 2005, director Lance Mungia whipped together The Crow: Wicked Prayer, which is arguably the worst sequel of the lot.

But had things panned out differently, and Miramax green-lit James O’Barr’s original pitch, film fans may well have received a follow-up to The Crow that was worthy of the 1994 classic. As O’Barr tells Screen Geek, the proposed sequel would’ve taken things in a “completely different direction.”

My intention was to take it to a completely different direction.

Halloween 2017: Devil’s Night Double Feature – The Crow and House Of 1000 Corpses

  • DailyDead
[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Check here for more double feature recommendations and other Halloween 2017 coverage.]

In horror movies, things usually go so very wrong on October 31st when it comes to the Halloween-themed offerings of the genre. But what about the night before? October 30th, or “Devil’s Night”, can also bring about its own horrific consequences, which is the theme I went with when it came time to put together my double feature of Alex ProyasThe Crow and Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses. Both are coincidentally feature film debuts for each director, they feature killer soundtracks, and this pair of films is also centered around a storyline where the characters will never be the same after their experiences on the night before Halloween.

Based on the comic by James O'Barr, The Crow finds aspiring rock star Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) rising from the grave a year after his death to take revenge on the four thugs (David Patrick Kelly, Angel David,

The Crow Remake Begins Shooting in Early 2018

The Crow Remake Begins Shooting in Early 2018
It may finally be happening. Don't get your hopes up just yet, but it sounds like the long-awaited reboot of The Crow is moving forward. The project was dropped several months ago by Relativity Media, who had been working on The Crow remake for a very long time. However, Sony stepped in quickly and gave the project new life. And, if creator James O'Barr is to be believed, they fully intend to make the movie next year.

James O'Barr, who created The Crow comic book series that the movies are based on, was recently asked about the status of the reboot during an interview. Not only did he reveal that The Crow Reborn, which is (at least for now) the official title of the movie, is going to start shooting in 2018, but he revealed that he is very involved in the creative process personally. Here's what he had to say about it.

The Crow reboot to start pre-production in 2018

“It can’t rain all the time”. That is unless you’re trying to reboot cult Brandon Lee property The Crow, and the downpour in question is bad luck.

There have been rights issues, the shutdown of Relativity Media, a revolving door of potential leads – Luke Evans, Jack Huston, Jason Momoa – and a roll-call of directors, from Stephen Norrington, to Corin Hardy, who in a twist similar to that Eric Draven’s fate, left the project before being resurrected by Sony earlier this year.

The latest development comes from creator of The Crow, James O’Barr, who told ScreenGeek the following titbit at the Los Angeles Comic-Con:-

“As of right now, it’s slated to start pre-production in February with a very talented British director named Corin Hardy. I’m involved in every aspect of the film and working closely with the director.”

Hardy has just finished directing The Conjuring spin-off,

‘The Crow’ Reboot To Possibly Go Before The Cameras In 2018

The Crow reboot looks like it will finally be going before the cameras in 2018. The film, which is called The Crow Reborn, is set to be directed by Corin Hardy with Jason Momoa playing the titular character.

Speaking to ScreenGreek, James O’Barr, the creator of the character, said that pre-production is finally set to start early next year, which hopefully should lead to a pretty quick shoot shortly afterwards?

“As of right now, it’s slated to start pre-production in February with a very talented British director named Corin Hardy”, he told the website. “I’m involved in every aspect of the film and working closely with the director”.

The Crow was first published by Caliber Comics in 1989, and adapted into a film with Brandon Lee as the title character just five years later. A big-screen reboot has been on the cards for quite some time, but hopefully this

10 Things About The Crow You Never Knew
The Crow was a massive hit when the comic book tale was eventually released in May, 1994, but sadly, its star was no longer here to witness its success. The Crow is a dark, brooding, gothic, action filled meditation on revenge, justice, love, and the afterlife, strengthened with bits of dark humor and a haunting performance by the late Brandon Lee, who was tragically killed in an on-set accident.

The Crow is remembered for Lee's brilliant portrayal of the movie's hero, musician Eric Draven, who returns from the dead to extract revenge on the Motor City thugs who murdered both him and his fianc&#233. A supernatural bird guides Draven through Detroit on Devil's Night, one year to the date after crime kingpin Top Dollar ordered his henchmen to kill the soon to be wed young couple.

Comic Books Actually Exist! And Other Things I’ve Found Out

Author Note: This original editorial was written in 2011, and several of the references are clearly dated, and more than that, in the past six years, my perspective has altered, changed, been tweaked,…, been re-examined (Shrugs) something to that effect- needless to say that this is the article written by a then-still young(er), still unknowing film school undergrad who had a more wide-eyed and bushy-tailed view of the subculture than I do now. My perspective as an outsider was more curious and intriguing at the time, and I think it’s important to have those kinds of initial thoughts documented, as much if not moreso than one’s current more-refined thoughts. While I will update portions of this article at the bottom of the page, I ask that you keep in mind, the perspective in which it was written, and forgive what are obvious dated references to the time period.

The Crow Reboot: Is This Even a Good Idea?

The Crow was an American movie based on a comic book of the same name. It was about a rock musician named Eric Draven who rose from his grave through the intervention of a magical crow for the purpose of exacting revenge on those who had killed both him and his fiancee. There are a number of reasons why the movie should be remembered, with examples ranging from its style to its emotion. However, The Crow tends to be remembered for the fact that its lead Brandon Lee was killed no more than a short time before production was complete.

The Crow reboot moves to Sony Pictures

It looks like the long-gestating reboot of The Crow is back from the dead, with THR reporting that Sony Pictures has picked up the project, which spent close to a decade in development at Relativity.

According to the site, director Corin Hardy (The Hallow) and star Jason Momoa (Aquaman) remain attached to the film, which is based upon the cult comic book series by James O’Barr.

The Crow has been eyeing an R-rating, and was intended as a faithful adaptation of the source material. Filming had been expected to get underway early in 2018, once Momoa finished up his work on Justice League, although it’s unclear whether any of these plans will change now that the project is set up at a new studio.

Jason Momoa's Crow Remake Gets Revived at Sony
After languishing in development for years at Relativity Media, which has been going through bankruptcy proceedings, The Crow reboot has finally found a new studio home. Sony Pictures has acquired the distribution rights, which comes almost a year after Samuel Hadida's Davis Films teamed up with the Highland Film Group and Electric Shadow to finance the film. Despite the project changing studios, it is believed that star Jason Momoa and director Corin Hardy may still be involved in the project.

Deadline reports that this reboot, which was given the new title The Crow Reborn last year, is expected to keep star Jason Momoa attached as Eric Draven, with Corin Hardy, who has been attached to direct since December 2014, reportedly still on board as well. While nothing is official regarding the director and star remaining on board, Corin Hardy sent out a photo on Instagram earlier this month with Jason Momoa,
