It seems not all that long ago that we were reporting that the remake of The Crow was on hold indefinitely. But today brings the announcement that the project is back on and even slated to lens in the second half of next year.
The project currently does not have a star attached. Jack Huston was on board to headline at one point but backed out earlier this year. Producer Edward Pressman tells Variety that the project will go before cameras in the back half of 2016, even with Relativity Media’s financial setbacks. “Despite Relativity’s problems, we’re going ahead now,” Ed Pressman told the outlet.
Pressman also explained to Variety that director Corin Hardy is still on board and that the project will shoot next year. “Corin [Hardy of The Hallow] and I are discussing as we speak who to go to, to play The Crow. We’ll find The Crow and shoot it in the first half of next year,” said Pressman.
The production has already had its fair share of woes, losing two different actors who were attached to play the lead role, first Luke Evans and more recently, Jack Huston.
The storyline of The Crow saw a fallen musician being resurrected to seek vengeance on those that slaughtered him and his lover a year earlier.
