It’s been around a month since we last gave you all an update on Corin Hardy’s upcoming reboot The Crow Reborn, who is apparently still attached to direct, with Jason Momoa (Aquaman) cast to star as Eric Draven. Today Dark Universe learned that Sony is now officially on board the project, and we are being told that previous reports are indeed true.

Tracking Board states today Sony Pictures has signed on to distribute The Crow Reborn worldwide, this according to multiple inside sources.

The Crow Reborn is being teased as a reboot of the 1994 film as well as a more faithful adaptation of the original graphic novel written by James O’Barr.

Synopsis:
Like the original, the story follows Eric Draven, a murder victim who returns from the dead, seeking vengeance on those who murdered him and his fiancée with the help of a mystical bird.

Samuel Hadida’s Davis Films, Highland Film Group and Electric Shadow previously acquired the rights to finance, produce and distribute the film.

Edward R. Pressman, who produced the original 1994 film starring Brandon Lee, will produce The Crow Reborn alongside Hadida and Kevin Misher of Misher Films. Highland Film Group and Electric Shadow are also producing, with HFG handling international sales. The film was developed by Pressman and Relativity.
