The Crow Remake Has Reportedly Suspended Production

The Crow has reportedly halted production, likely due to rumored financing problems, Screen Daily reports.

After a troubled pre-production, the long-awaited reboot of the comic book franchise had finally got moving in the spring. Rumors started in June, though, that Relativity Media would sell the rights due to ongoing financial trouble at the studio.

The film has undergone a number of setbacks, including losing a director and two lead stars during the course of pre-production. It hadn't yet started filming, as the latest candidate to head up the film hadn't been chosen.

The film was supposed to be the first shot at the new Pinewood Cardiff, and Pinewood is now apparently awaiting word on a timetable for production to resume.

Going back as early as 2011, Relativity had production delays -- then in the form of a lawsuit with The Weinstein Company over rights -- which resulted in then-star Bradley Cooper dropping out. Since then, about a dozen actors, including some very big names, have been bandied about for Eric Draven. Both Luke Evans and Jack Huston signed on and then bailed.
