The Crow Reborn will be distributed by Sony Pictures, although complications in the schedules of lead actor Jason Momoa and director Colin Hardy raise questions about whether or not they’ll still be involved.
Tracking-Board has recently revealed that the more faithful retelling of the original The Crow graphic novel is going to be distributed by Sony Pictures alongside Highland Film Group and Electric Shadow. However, while the reboot is moving forward, there are several complications in the schedules of both the lead actor and the director that raise questions about the immediate development of the reboot. Jason Momoa is still working on Aquaman for next year and Hardy is currently working on The Conjuring spin-off The Nun. Tracking-Board’s sources indicate that both will still be involved, as the film’s release window is still unclear at this time.
The Crow continues Sony’s trend of obtaining distribution rights to several potential comic book movie franchises – in addition to the trilogy of Spider-Man movies set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are also the planned Spider-Man spin-offs Venom, Silver & Black, and the untitled animated Spider-Man movie, along with the planned shared universe based on Valiant Comics.
The Crow Reborn does not have a planned release date.
10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.
Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles. Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet. Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing. Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.
