The story behind Relativity’s The Crow remake is practically as full of struggle and hardship as the plot itself. For a while it was a revolving door of talent, unable to hold on to a director or star long enough to actually start shooting. Then, just when it looked ready to take flight with director Corin Hardy, it was crippled by Relativity’s financial woes.
But now the film could finally get off the ground, with still on board and a new leading man at the forefront. Jason Momoa, the former Khal Drogo and the current Aquaman, is reportedly closing in on a deal to play the undead vigilante at the center of the Crow remake. Previous actors considered for the role include Jack Huston and Luke Evans. Read More »

Last year, it was rumored director Corin Hardy was going to drop out of The Crow. Then it was said Hardy would shoot the remake this year. And then, following Relativity Media’s legal woes, The Hallow director finally exited the project. In another turn of events, Hardy might return to The Crow, but as we wait to see if that’ll come to pass, he’s signed up to direct Hell Bent, which is described as “The Dirty Dozen goes to hell.”
Below, learn more about the Corin Hardy project and the troubled remake of The Crow.

Relativity’s remake of The Crow cannot catch a freakin’ break. Director Corin Hardy has just been removed from the project, after initially signing on back in 2014. His name is just the latest on a growing list of stars and filmmakers who’ve parted ways with the project over the years. The news comes amid still more drama at Relativity, which filed for bankruptcy last year. Read More »
The past week must’ve been rough for director Alex Proyas. His career has had its ups and downs, including his scrapped adaptation of Paradise Lost, but these last few days, in particular, haven’t been great. Critics ripped Gods of Egypt apart and audiences didn’t show up for the pricey adventure movie.
Following the disastrous opening, Proyas then wrote a Facebook post criticizing reviewers of his latest, making both fair and unfair points. As the director mentioned, even two of his most beloved movies, Dark City and The Crow, weren’t huge hits with critics during their theatrical releases. The latter even became a big enough hit that it has been gearing up for a remake for years — which Proyas would rather not see happen.
Check out the Gods of Egypt director’s thoughts on the remake below.

This summer hasn’t really been a great one for horror, but thankfully there seem to be some more promising entries on the horizon as fall rolls around. One on our radar is The Hallow, a British-Irish supernatural thriller that got some good reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The story follows a British conservationist (Joseph Mawle) who’s sent to rural Ireland, wife (Bojana Novakovic) and infant son in tow, to survey a forest for development. Locals warn him that the woods are teeming with malevolent spirits and supernatural creatures, and he realizes too late that they’re probably right. Watch The Hallow trailer after the jump.

In The Hallow, a researcher moves into a home out in the rural Irish countryside, and soon finds that humans and animals aren’t the only residents of the woods. Creatures of old reside on that land, with their own desires, and their own laws. These things, almost faeries in the oldest sense, are repelled by iron and attracted to certain types of flesh. When the family removes the iron bars that block the windows of their new home, things begin to happen.

Something is really giving Relativity a hard time as it tries to assemble a reboot of The Crow. The film, based on the comic series by James O’Barr which led to the 1994 film starring Brandon Lee, has been in development for years. A dizzying array of directors and actors has been attached to the project in that time. The latest in a very long line of talent departures has just taken place as intended star Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) has departed due to “scheduling issues.” Read More »
