The Crow reboot/remake/thing has had nothing but bad news so it’s about time that the universe showed us that it can’t rain all the time.
The Wrap reports that Relativity are looking to shoot the long, long, long-gestating movie in March and, in a bit of very good news, director Corin Hardy is still attached.
They say that the director of The Hallow has signed a “holding deal” to keep him on the movie while Relativity does its best to emerge from that whole messy bankruptcy thing.
Hardy’s potential departure from the project was one of the main reasons why producer Edward R Pressman filed that recent lawsuit, as he was concerned that a lower-budget production with no prospects of a theatrical release would mean losing the filmmaker. He’s a hot property at the moment thanks to the success of The Hallow, which has got great reviews since its showing at Sundance, and he was nominated for a BIFA earlier this week.
So, if The Crow really is moving forward again, and Hardy is still involved, the question is: who will play Eric Draven? Luke Evans and Jack Huston dropped out because of how long things dragged on for, could one of them return? And can we please still have Andrea Riseborough as Top Dollar?
The Hallow is released 13 November in the UK. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
