The on again off again remake of The Crow is finally back on again, according to a new report on TheWrap. The project is scheduled to be Relativity's first production project post-bankruptcy.
While there's currently no star attached to play Eric Draven in the film, Relativity has signed director Corin Hardy to a holding deal. The remake will center around Eric Draven, who returns from the dead to track down his killers with the help of a mystical crow.
According to a filing from The Crow producer Edward R. Pressman, Relativity has already invested in excess of $7 million in The Crow remake. Relativity was in danger of losing the rights to the film if principal photography did not start within three years from the initial signing of the deal. By beginning production in first quarter of 2016, Relativity will retain the rights.
At one point, Jack Huston was attached to star in the film, but he dropped out after the film was pushed back and conflicted with his other projects.
