It looks like a reboot of The Crow is finally happening. According to a new report from The Wrap Justice League star Jason Momoa will lead The Crow remake which is set to begin filming in January 2017. Corin Hardy is still set to direct the comic book adaptation.
Momoa’s involvement in the reboot means the actor will move quickly from one comic book role to another. James Wan’s Aquaman has a 2018 release date, so Momoa will have a busy few years of filming comic book movies.
As a new adaptation of James O’Barr’s classic book, the reboot won’t simply remake the 1994 film, and is said to be a true adaptation of the comic. The production company behind The Crow fell into financial trouble in the last few years, but the announcement of the reboot seemingly confirms that they are back on their feet and ready to start producing the long awaited remake.
The Crow will introduce Jason Momoa as Eric Draven, a murdered man who with the help of a talking bird returns from the dead to bring vengeance to the men that killed him and his fiancée.
