The Crow Reboot Loses Its Star and Director – Again!

No Comments
The Crow has lost its lead actor and director once again!

The reboot of The Crow was apparently about to get off the ground after nearly a decade in development hell, but it now appears that it isn't happening after all.

Game of Thrones and Justice League star Jason Momoa was cast as the movie’s titular character 19 months after Luke Evans dropped out of the project, but Deadline just reported that he’s also formally withdrawn from The Crow reboot. Director Corin Hardy (The Hallow), who was connected with the project when Evans was still part of it, has also left for a second time.

According to Deadline, Momoa and Hardy left due creative and financial differences between Davis Films boss Samuel Hadida and Sony Pictures. Davis Films, not only holds the underlying rights to James O'Barr's iconic comic book character, it was financing the reboot. Sony announced in September 2017 that the film would hit theaters on October 11, 2019, but Deadline suggested that a deal was never sealed.

Momoa confirmed his departure from The Crow reboot via Instagram. He included an apology to his fans and shared a never-before-seen concept art piece:

I've waited eight years to play this dream role. I love you @corinhardy and @sonypictures, but unfortunately, I may have to wait eight more. Not our team. 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. Love u, Corin. Aloha, J
