We’ve been hearing rumors of a Crow reboot, one helmed by Corin Hardy and starring Jason Momoa, for months. While we’ve yet to receive confirmation that the project has officially gotten the green-light, the creator of The Crow comic book (upon which the film is based), James O’Barr, told ScreenGeek the reboot will begin production in early 2018.
O’Barr: “As of right now, [The Crow Reborn] is slated to start pre-production in February with a very talented British director named Corin Hardy. I’m involved in every aspect of the film and working closely with the director.”
