The Crow reboot has hit a number of snags over the years and now, it looks like another obstacle has popped up for the long in development reboot. The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that The Crow reboot, now entitled The Crow Reborn, has moved on from its former home at Relativity Media after CEO Ryan Kavanaugh put the company up for sale last month. That would, normally, be good news since the production banner has struggled to get the reboot of the ground, but this kind of transition also comes with a number of difficulties like contract negotiations, schedules, and creative conflicts that could very well complicate Jason Momoa and director Corin Hardy’s involvement with the picture.

BOX OFFICE PREDICTIONS
What’s Up Collider Crew,
I hope all of you are doing well. With Quentin Tarantino allegedly only making two more films, who would you like to see work with Tarantino that has not already? I’ve read in a 2012 Screeenrant article where Tarantino is quoted saying he would want to work with Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep and Michael Caine. If I could pick one actor, I would choose Bokeem Woodbine after seeing his performance in FX’S Fargo Season 2. I would love to hear your choices!
