James O’Barr may be the only one left believing ‘The Crow’ reboot will happen

The recent bankruptcy of Relativity Media appeared to have killed a few projects, not least of which is the long-delayed reboot of The Crow. While the film had director Corin Hardy in place with Jack Huston to star, everything is off now – unless you ask Crow creator James O’Barr.

“It’s still very much a live property,” said O’Barr during a panel hosted by ComicBook.com at Twin Tiers Comic Con in Elmira, NY.

The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. And Relativity made like a hundred bad movies and lost money so now they’re in financial trouble. So the producers are just going to take it to another studio if Relativity can’t get backing again.”

Will a reboot of "The Crow" ever happen?

Will a reboot of “The Crow” ever happen?

O’Barr doesn’t flinch and doubles down on the promise.

“It’s going to happen. I talked to Pressman Films a couple of weeks ago and they said within two or three weeks, we should have it placed at a new studio. Because the day Relativity announced that they were having financial problems, there were like a dozen other studios that called about getting The Crow property. it definitely will happen.”

Rumors started in June that Relativity Media would sell the rights due to ongoing financial trouble at the studio.

O’Barr was close to the team making the film, which went through the following actors as rumored leads: James McAvoy, Mark Wahlberg, Bradley Cooper, Luke Evans and Jack Huston. (probably a few others not listed)

During the panel, O’Barr also gave some details about the film itself, which he characterized as very true to the comic.

“I’m very happy with everything,” O’Barr said of the planned script.
