Corin Hardy talks ‘The Crow’ reboot, waiting to restart, talks James O’Barr

While attending a Halloween screening of The Hallow at New York City’s Scary Movies festival, director Corin Hardy came dressed in Crow makeup and Fangoria spoke to him about the delayed Crow reboot.

We were deep into it until this past summer, when the whole Relativity issue occurred. I look forward to making it.”

Hardy’s new film version of James O’Barr’s comic has been halted due to the bankruptcy troubles of Relativity, but sounds confident it will move forward.

“It’s waiting to get restarted,” he says, “and I’m waiting to restart it, and continue the work we were doing. We were deep into it until this past summer, when the whole Relativity issue occurred. I look forward to making it.”

Producer Edward R. Pressman, who also worked on the popular 1994 version which starred Brandon Lee, said his intentions to take the new film elsewhere if a recovering Relativity or its successor doesn’t want to take it on.

Hardy confirms, “Ed’s very passionate about it, and wants to make it and wants me to make it, so we’ll see what happens next.”

The director, who is doing a fresh adaptation of O’Barr’s story rather than taking cues from the previous Brandon Lee-starring feature, notes that the creator himself has been another valued collaborator.

“I showed O’Barr at the start what I wanted to do, with visuals and music, and we spent about a week just hanging out, and we became good friends,” Hardy recalled to Fangoria. “It was a very special time, because obviously I was meeting him as a fan, but I also wanted him to be on board with what I intend to do. So I wanted it to go right, and we got on very well.”
