Jason Momoa to Start Filming The Crow Reboot in January 2017. The new film adaptation of The Crow is finally moving forward as it is now being reported that Relativity Media will be starting production of the reboot starring Jason Momoa in January 2017.
The Wrap first reported that the reboot, being directed by Corin Hardy, will start filming early next year with Jason Momoa taking on the title role of a rock star who rises up from the dead to exact revenge on those who killed him and his girlfriend. The site confirmed that Momoa will start filming for The Crow after finishing his scenes for Justice League. Much like the comic book, the new film will be much more faithful to the source material than the original film, which starred the late Brandon Lee as the main character. Talking about remaking the film, The Crow creator James O’Barr said:
[W]e’re not remaking the movie. We’re readapting the book. My metaphor is that there is a Bela Lugosi Dracula and there’s a Francis Ford Coppola Dracula. They use the same material, but you still got two entirely different films. This one’s going to be closer to Taxi Driver or a John Woo film, and I think there’s room for both of them. Part of the appeal of The Crow comics, after all, is that they can tell very different stories.
