‘The Crow’ reboot gets Corin Hardy as director, Luke Evans may also leave

Relativity Studios hit another snag in their reboot of The Crow, now changing directors and possibly losing their star, Luke Evans. Director Corin Hardy is set to take over on the latest film adaptation of James O’Barr’s The Crow comic book series.

Brandon Lee The Crow in chair photoDeadline details that ardy replaces F. Javier Gutiérrez, who was attached but signed on to the direct the next installment of The Ring franchise. That made him unavailable to helm The Crow, which is slated for a spring production start with a script by Cliff Dorfman.

The Crow is about a murdered man who comes back for revenge, which was first brought to the screen by director Alex Proyas and the late actor Brandon Lee.

“Hardy made his live action feature directing debut on the Occupant Entertainment thriller The Hallow, a film that will be released next year and before that he drew acclaim for helming the animated short Butterfly and for directing music videos for the likes of  Ed Sheeran, Biffy Clyro, Keane, Paolo Nutini and The Prodigy,” writes Deadline.

Evans tells Den of Geek that the movie just took too long to come together. Asked how the film was progressing, Evans said : “It’s not, no. No at the minute The Crow is not, not for me, I think it’s a little… I mean I’m sure it’s going to go ahead at some point, but I have other projects that are greenlit and ready to go and projects that I’m very interested in and you know, I can’t wait much longer! [laughs]”

Filming in the Spring could have set up a 2016 release of the film, but not that’s in question.
