Jason Momoa, the star of The Crow Reborn, and director Corin Hardy have reportedly exited the project being developed by Davis Films. There is also speculation about Sony also planning to exit the worldwide distributor role for The Crow reboot.
Deadline cites creative and financial disagreements with Samuel Hadida, the head of Davis Films to have caused the trouble for the production. Seems like Hadida and Sony never really inked a deal, despite Sony’s announcement of The Crow releasing on October 11, 2019.
It is not the first time that the director Corin Hardy exited The Crow as he was earlier also tasked to make the movie for Relativity Media a few years ago, but, after the studio faced financial problems, the project was scrapped. It was a big boost for the project to see Jason Momoa being a part of the movie, and that convinced Hardy to come back. The project was now going to be taken care of by Sony.
Now with Hardy leaving another time and Momoa being the sole reason he had returned, it is quite apparent that the director was too frustrated despite trying to make his big debut with this movie.
We will let you know if The Crow gets “reborn” again with another creative team. Maybe the movie’s original director Alex Proyas was right in advising that the 90s Brandon Lee portrayal of the film be left alone without any remake.
