The long in-development The Crow remake has flown the coop for a new studio, and has a new name in the process, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A consortium of companies - Davis Films, Highland Film Group, and Electric Shadow - have acquired the movie rights to The Crow from the beleaguered Relativity Media, although Relativity's CEO Ryan Kavanaugh will remain as an executive producer.
As part of this, the film has been renamed The Crow Reborn and has enlisted the primary producer of the original 1994 film Edward R. Pressman to produce the film with Davis Films' Samuel Hadida.
“I am thrilled to collaborate with this talented team and return The Crow franchise to its roots for a new generation of audiences to enjoy,” said Pressman.
Earleir this year, director Corin Hardy and actor Jason Momoa were attached to the film, but with this change in studio its unknown if their commitments will carry over.
The Crow Reborn is scheduled to begin filming in 2017.
