We’re getting more signs of life for The Crow reboot. In an interview with ScreenGeek, James O’Barr, The Crow creator, gave an update on the status for the film, saying:

“As of right now, it’s 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.”

Last we heard, the film had moved over to Sony Pictures, and it wasn’t clear if director Corin Hardy and star Jason Momoa were still attached. While O’Barr didn’t mention Momoa in his statement, his confirmation of Hardy implies that Momoa will likely also still be attached to the project, but we’ll have to wait and see on that front.

Few films have been in development for as long as The Crow. For about as long as time itself, this reboot has been in the works, and in its time, it’s seen countless stars and directors pass through the revolving door. Is it possible that with Hardy at the helm that it’ll finally see the big screen?

Even more important, is this still a movie that anyone wants to see after all these years in development? What do you think? Do you care to see a Crow remake after all these years of false starts? Let us know down below!

    No God, please God, No! Does O’Barr really need the paycheck that bad? As if the sequels didn’t shit all over the first film enough, they keep powering through with this. Harumph! Harumph, I say! Seriously, don’t do it, if you absolutely have to, then I say hire me as a writer. Ill even lose another 20 pounds to play the character. As a tremendous fan of the first film, I would guarantee quality and respect to the original film. I would never shit on Brandon’s legacy, I would bring something to it that Hollywood can’t, vision and integrity.

    I just don’t how we would all react if they announced this as another TV series? Another film without Dimension films existing…… topical.

    I hope they double check the guns for all blanks this time.
