The Crow Reboot Won’t Die???…

Relativity Media is in financial shambles and many films were hit by the collapse, but The Crow Reboot may be the one hit the hardest.  The film has been in development hell for years losing directors and cast over and over.  There was a court case, etc.  But according to Crow creator James O’Barr, assures us that even though it seems doomed it will definitely happen:

It’s still very much a live property. The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. And Relativity made like a hundred bad movies and lost money so now they’re in financial trouble. So the producers are just going to take it to another studio if Relativity can’t get backing again. It’s going to happen.

O’Barr’s comic was first published in 1989 and he states that he has been in contact with Pressman Films and that things are still moving forward:

The day Relativity announced that they were having financial problems, there were like a dozen other studios that called about getting The Crow property. It definitely will happen.

Seeing how the rumor mill has been swirling about the reboot for six years now, obviously its creator hasn’t given up on the idea, but a lot of us have. Sure there may be an audience for this but the original was a combination of brilliance and tragedy and everything that followed, sequels and TV shows, were not good, not good at all.  Just kill the crow already!
