Could Jason Momoa finally be the star to get The Crow off the ground?

After previous false starts with Tom Hiddleston, Bradley Cooper, Jack Huston and Luke Evans, Relativity Media is now said to be eyeing the upcoming Justice League star.  Corin Hardy (The Hallow), attached to the most recent failed launch starring Luke Evans, is still set to direct the picture.  

The biggest clue to the deal actually came from Momoa, who posted a picture with Hardy on Instagram, with the caption, "The only way to officially seal the deal as men Is a pint of black beauty," as the two shared a beer.  Today, Mashable has confirmed that the two were sealing the deal on Momoa starring in the reboot of the role of Eric Draven, previously portrayed by Brandon Lee in the fan-favorite 1994 adaptation directed by Alex Proyas.

@Spider2YBanana - very true

Why don't they adapt one of the other Crow stories?

Such as The Crow: Dead Time:

Joshua is a Native American farmer of the Crow Nation who adopts the "white man's way" and becomes a farmer. Joshua, along with his wife and child, are murdered by a band of Confederate soldiers. A century later, Joshua is resurrected by the Crow and hunts down the soldiers, who have been reincarnated as a biker gang.

Here are a few others

@SimplyAz - I think they did that one and it was terrible.

I could be wrong, I don't remember what this crap was about.
SimplyAz - 8/10/2016, 11:12 AM

No Crow City of Angels was about a mechanic and his son who get murdered by Drug Dealers, but you're right that it was crap.

Shame as the story of the Crow helping get revenge helps to naturally set up sequels.

@SimplyAz - Maybe if this is done well, we could see other characters adapted to the screen. I for one would like to see a female Crow.
SimplyAz - 8/11/2016, 3:45 AM
@Gwarlock -

That would be awesome. There have been a few female Crows in the comics

@SimplyAz - I think there was some variation of that done I think it was called the crow wicked prayer I also remember David Boreanaz was in it I could be totally wrong though
SimplyAz - 8/12/2016, 1:16 AM
@Galahad -
I haven't seen that one but the comic was really good, check it out if you have the time.

I'll just watch the Brandon Lee version if I want to see The Crow.
