The Crow remake has been a long time coming. It’s ploughed through a seemingly never ending series of hurdles and speed bumps. It’s gone through different actors, writers and directors, and now it’s hit another big damn problem.
Screen Daily reports that studio Relativity Media’s bankruptcy is having a serious knock-on effect for the film, which was in pre-production at Pinewood. Now, production has been suspended and the crew has “vacated the studio” while they wait for official word on what’s happening
Star Jack Huston had recently left the film due to scheduling, which was also the reason for Luke Evans’ departure, and we’d yet to hear who would step into the role of Eric Draven. Andrea Riseborough had been reported as playing the film’s villain, Top Dollar.
Director Corin Hardy (The Hallow) had recently signed on, and it’s unclear whether he’ll stick with the project. Screen Daily’s sources say that Relativity “intends to move forward with producing and releasing The Crow,” but we’ll have to wait for an official statement to see what that means exactly.
