It seems The Crow remake is having trouble again. Relativity’s reboot of the 1994 classic has already seen its share of trouble, from losing actors to Relativity’s bankruptcy that halted it from entering production earlier this year. The company had hopes that the film would be back on track this month, but have now suffered another setback.
Dana Brunetti has stepped in as creative head of Relativity and as the head of The Crow project he chose to release director Corin Hardy from the project. Hardy is the forth director to step away from the reboot. Several actors have also backed out of the film. Relativity claims that The Crow is a “top production priority” and it’s no wonder why, they have already sunk $7 million into the reboot. As if the reboot wasn’t having enough problems, producer Ed Pressman is looking to throw a wrench in the studio’s plans by denying them the rights to any prequels, sequels or remakes of The Crow, which is going to cause a problem down the line.
