That’s right, the story of the twenty-year battle to remake THE CROW hasn’t reached its end yet. This is a film that’s been a revolving door of talent. On the long list of actors who took up the lead of this film at one point or another are Luke Evans, Tom Hiddleston, Bradley Cooper, and Jack Huston. The movie has also had a good handful of directors enter and exit the project over the course of its failed development.
The latest of these directors was Corin Hardy, who was reportedly fired from the project in March of this year. This led to legal action taken by the film’s producer Ed Pressman, who gave Relativity rights to sequels, and by firing Hardy without his consultation, they hadsupposedly violated their agreement. There’s been no real word since March about this legal battle.
Now, in a throwaway line from a recent Deadline report, hints that the studio and Pressman may be close to patching things up, and the outcome may result in Hardy landing back in the director’s chair for the film. In addition, they state that there are a few more obstacles ahead for the remake, and that another studio may be hopping in to the mix to help out.
While this would be a rare filing under the “good new” category for the film, I think it may be time to wrap this one up. While I really do wish the film all the best, it was already a movie no one was asking for. To top it all off, it seems to hit roadblock after roadblock, and the film has changed so many hands, one has to wonder what the real potential is for it to be any good.
