The planned reboot of The Crow has hit yet another speed bump. With Relativity’s bankruptcy looming over the production of the planned reboot of the franchise, it looks like the project is about to lose it’s director…again.
According to The Wrap, Corin Hardy is gettimg ready to leave the project, according to a court filing by producer Edward R. Pressman who is currently objecting to the property being included among Relativity’s other properties in a bankruptcy auction. In the filing Pressman claims that he is “in danger of losing the services of the director of the picture…who is widely regarded as a key creative element. Thus, the production of the picture is imploding even as the time to make the picture is running out under the Crow contract.”
Will this project ever see the light of day? It seems pretty unlikely at this point after losing a number of lead actors and now possibly two directors. Good news for Pressman though is that Relativity only optioned the rights from him and if cameras don’t start rolling within eighteen months, the rights will revert back to Pressman. At the rate this production is going? Looks like that’s going to be the case.
