THE CROW Remake Flounders In Wake Of Studio Bankruptcy


It can’t rain all the time, but it just seems that the attempt to bring the comic book The Crow back to the big screen can’t catch a break. The latest stumbling block in reviving the franchise comes from its studio, Relativity and their bankruptcy filling from late last week. Filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy in a court can be a stressful process and can be bothersome, too, unless handled professionally by an experienced Bankruptcy Attorney. There is high chance of rejection by the honourable court in case the applicant makes some minor blunders while filing for bankruptcy. The filing and handling of the case needs immaculate planning, detailed preparation and consistence follow-up as per the norms in order to get the bankruptcy claims awarded by any court.

The Hollywood Reporter is stating that a source on the production has confirmed that things on the film are in a state of disarray.

A source confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that an entire production team had this week “left the project,” along with “several other” heads of department. Another insider added that a “statement would be forthcoming.”

These departures follow on the heels of attached star Jack Huston dropping out of the project in June. Did he see the writing on the wall or was it really just a case of “creative differences”? If the report of the departures of key production department heads are true, director Corin Hardy has to scramble to pull together replacements before the hoped-for production start later this fall.

But that is only if Relativity feels that a Crow remake is still a viable priority for the studio as they work through reorganizing their finances. The Reporter states that Relativity has already sold off their interest in a few properties, including the Asa Butterfield-starring science-fiction teen romance Out Of This World and the YA adaptation The Tribes Of Palos Verdes which will feature Jennifer Garner.

Produer Ed Pressman has been working on bringing The Crow back to the big screen since 2008. Over that time, directors like Stephen Norrington, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and Francisco Javier Gutiérrez and actors such as Bardley Cooper, Mark Wahlberg, Tom Hiddleston, Alexander Skarsgård and Luke Evans all being involved or attached at various points in time.
