The Crow remake fall apart once again, star Jason Momoa and director Corin Hardy depart

The long-planned remake of cult action classic The Crow has collapsed once again. 

The remake has been in development for over a decade and had secured a release date for October 11th in 2019 with Jason Momoa starring and Corin Hardy directing. 

Sadly though, disagreements between distributors Sony and producers Davis Films and rights holder Samuel Hadida have led to Sony pulling out. As a result, both Momoa and Hardy have walked, weeks before production on the film was due to get underway in Budapest, Deadline reports.

The Crow tells the story of Eric Draven, a rock musician who is revived from the dead to avenge his murder and that of his fiancée. 

Luke Evans and Jack Huston were among the actors who had previously been cast in the leading role in the remake, which originally starred Brandon Lee. 

The original entered film notoriety when Lee was accidentally killed during filming. The actor was mortally wounded after being shot in the back during a stunt that went horribly wrong. 

You can check out the original movie here in hmv's online store.
