Good news for those opposed to the long planned remake of The Crow. Sources close to the remake have told ScreenDaily that the project is currently suspended. The crew have reportedly vacated the Pinewood Cardiff location where the project was slated to shoot. The suspension of production goes hand-in-hand with the recent announcement that Relativity Media is filing for bankruptcy. However, a source close to the production told the outlet that the project is still expected to move forward with Relativity in the future.
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. When the film eventually does go back into production, Corin Hardy (The Hallow) is set to helm from a script penned by Cliff Dorfman (Warrior) and Nick Cave.
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.
No news just yet on when Relativity will be revisiting the project. But stay tuned to the site in the coming months for more news on this project as it is made available.
