Jason Momoa is in talks to become the new Crow

jason momoa, the red road,

THE CROW lives again.

The reboot over at Relativity that just won't seem to die looks to be getting new life now that Relativity's bankruptcy situation has been resolved with Jason Momoa in talks to star as the film's lead under the direction of Corin Hardy. 

THE CROW has typically followed Eric Draven, who rises from the dead with the help of the title bird to seek vengeance for the death of his fiancee. If this version of THE CROW stays true to its roots, Momoa would follow in the footsteps of the late Brandon Lee as a new version of that character.

 

Momoa is certainly a different approach than some of the names that have been floated for the role in the past (Bradley Cooper, Jack Huston, etc.), and it mostly stems from the fact that Momoa is an absolute bad-ass. This is Khal Drogo we're talking about and hardly the Aquaman that's been the butt of jokes for years. That alone brings a different dynamic to the role as someone we might not expect to go down in a fight. However, it does raise the possibility of a much more physical Crow once he's resurrected, lending the reboot to be more action-oriented than the 1994 original. 

For a redo that I've been iffy on in the past, Momoa certainly piques my interest, and who knows? While this will never be able to match Alex Proyas' cult classic, perhaps it can do something intriguing enough coming out of the source material to stand on its own.

Such a Bad Fit

Eric shouldn't be an obvious tough guy.

I watch the crow EVERY year in October near Halloween. It's been in development HELL for years now, which should tell you something. That something is "DON'T DO IT". Seriously! If a reboot is this hard to get made, maybe take the hint.

God dammit!

1. Jason Momoa is too big for Eric Draven!

2. This reboot going through development hell should be left alone....or better yet, it should be passed onto Paramount or Universal or another big studio since Relativity is now bankrupt! How can this movie still be happening if Relativity is closing it's doors? Besides, before Brandon Lee's tragic end during filming the original, Paramount had the rights, but passed them on because of the incident. Why not let that go and get the rights back?

2 problems

1) This movie needs to be left alone. It's not perfect, but it's imperfections are part of what makes it a classic.
2) This is like putting 1986 Arnold Schwarzenegger in to play Tiny Tim Cratchit.

Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

What the fuck? The Crow isn't supposed to be a giant...

It's a story of a guy (usually a weak person who the world sees as abnormal) and is given a chance to right the wrongs that led to their death.

The Crow ISN'T SUPPOSED TO BE CONAN... This guy can't act and is the worst thing to come out of Game Of Thrones. He ruined the Conan remake and will probably suck in this movie too. There is no hope for his Aquaman either. Everything he touches turns to shit.

I'm a fan of the guy and can't wait to see him kick ass as Aquaman, but I just don't see him at all as Eric Draven.

They should just let go this re-imagining of the Crow already. There's a reason why so much talent has passed on this project.
