While this will come as a surprise to absolutely no one, Sony has removed the upcoming reboot of The Crow from their release schedule. The announcement was made on the Exhibitor Relations Twitter page late this afternoon, closing the door (probably for good) on the potential remake.
Aquaman star Jason Momoa was set as the lead in the film with Corin Hardy lined up to helm the project. Sony was getting cold feet about the movie before Mamoa and Hardy exited because of creative and financial differences with The Crow rights holder Samuel Hadida and his Davis Films production company. The inability of the production and distributing company to come together on the project lead to the lead actor and director jumping ship.
The Crow reboot had been mired in development hell, and finally looked as if it was going to get made before this latest setback. The original release date for the remake was October 11, 2019, but with no star, no director and no distributing company, it will be anyone guess as to when or even if The Crow remake will ever fly again.
