Plans for a new big screen version of James O’Barr‘s The Crow are dead at RelativityThe Hollywood Reporter brings word that The Crow remake is now being set up at Davis Films, Highland Film Group and Electric Shadow. It is unconfirmed at this time whether director Corin Hardy (The Hallow) is still attached nor has it been confirmed if former Game of Thrones and future Aquaman star Jason Momoa is still in talks for the lead role.

The development of The Crow reboot has had a troubled history with frequent stalls in the pre-production cycle and multiple lead actor drop outs including Bradley Cooper, Luke Evans, Tom Hiddleston and Jack Huston. The film rights for the property have been in question after Relativity’s bankruptcy filing earlier this year.

The Crow was originally published as a four issue miniseries in 1989. Alex Proyas directed the 1994 film based on the series which starred Brandon Lee. Tragically, Lee died in an accident during production. However, the role was recast for several sequels and even a short-lived television series. In the comics, too, O’Barr’s character has been sequelized in quite a few different stories and formats, including a bizarre 2013 crossover with Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghostsbusters and The X-Files.
