Corin Hardy shares another small look at Jason Momoa as The Crow

This is a remake which just doesn't want to be made. Yesterday, the long-in-development remake of THE CROW crashed and burned, again. Director Corin Hardy (THE NUN) and star Jason Momoa (AQUAMAN) departed the project, which allegedly had to do with creative and financial differences with Samuel Hadida, whose Davis Films holds underlying rights and who was financing the film. Production was set to begin in Budapest within the next five weeks, but it all fell apart. Jason Momoa took to Instagram yesterday to apologize to fans and now Corin Hardy has followed suit, providing yet another small peek at Momoa as Eric Draven/The Crow.

I knew from the off, that the idea of making a new version of The Crow was never going to be for everyone, because it is a beloved film. And I say that as someone in love with it myself. But I poured everything I had into the last 3.5 years of work, to try & create something which honoured what the Crow stood for; from James O’Barr’s affecting graphic novel, to Alex Proyas’s original movie, with great respect to Brandon Lee and with the desire to make something bold and new, that myself, as an obsessive fan, could be proud of. And with @prideofgypsies Jason Momoa, and my amazing team of artists & film-makers, we came SO close. But sometimes, when you love something so much, you have to make hard decisions. And yesterday, deciding it was time to let go of this dark & emotional dream project, was the hardest decision of all. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever.

THE CROW remake has been through so many iterations over the years that I won't be surprised when the project is resurrected at some point in the future. It probably shouldn't be, but there's no way that THE CROW remake is going to be left on the table with so much work, and expense, already committed to it.
