The Crow reboot is NOT dead says James O’Barr

August 18th, 2015 by Jonathan Snelling Comments

movie-news-banner-copyThe Crow main has announced that despite reports that The Crow reboot is dead amid studio money problems the reboot “will definitely happen”.

Creator James O’Barr explained that; “the company… that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity, who have created a hundred bad movies and lost money… So the producers are going to take it to another studio if Relativity can’t get backing”.

The reboot has had its turn of unfortunate events including losing a director and two lead stars during the course of pre-production. Furthermore, “The Crow was supposed to be the first shot at the new Pinewood Cardiff, and Pinewood was last reported to be awaiting word on a timetable for production to resume.”

The Crow film was originally released in 1994 and is based on the comic book of the same name.

It is as yet unknown when this film plans to be released.

My name is Jonathan Snelling. I’ve been a movie fan for a long time now and last year completed a degree in Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University. It’s hard to choose a favourite film but I’ve always been a major fan of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga. I’m really interested to see how Ben Affleck does in Dawn of Justice as it's set to be an incredible film. I’m usually willing to see any genre but naturally some more so than others.
