Lots have been talked about the long-awaited reboot of The Crow. The character based on the comics by James O’Barr of the same name already had a series of movie adaptations which started with the cult classic The Crow (1994), directed by a then-unknown Alex Proyas. Since Sony took control of the project and assigned Corin Hardy as the director for the remake, things started to go smoother. And now, at last, the official release date of the movie for the American market has been announced. And it is the 11th of October next year 2019.
It is also long known that Jason Momoa will be the one in charge to play Eric Draven / The Crow. Actor and director seem to have a good chemistry and matching points of view of how the movie should be like. And once they finish with their duties regarding their immediate upcoming project Aquaman (2018) and The Nun (2018) respectively, the production of The Crow (2019) will start.
The final story and screenplay is authored by singer and musician Nick Cave, with Kevin Cornish, Alex Tse and Jesse Wigutow having provided earlier versions. So far, no other cast member of this new adaptation has been announced.
The plot for the original comic books revolves around an unfortunate young man called Eric Draven. He and his fiancée, Shelly, are assaulted by a gang of street thugs after their car breaks down. Eric is shot in the head and is paralyzed, and can only watch as Shelly is savagely beaten, raped, and also shot in the head. After the couple is left for dead on the side of the road, Eric is resurrected by a crow and seeks vengeance on the murderers, methodically stalking and killing them.
