More Trouble for ‘The Crow’ as Jason Momoa and Corin Hardy Exit Film

More bad news for The Crow franchise as Deadline is reporting that Jason Momoa and director Corin Hardy have left the film due to creative differences. Production was set to begin in Budapest this July with October 11, 2019 being the actual release date.

First published by Caliber Comics in 1989, The Crow follows the sad story of Eric Draven, a man who along with his wife were brutally attacked and killed by a gang of street thugs. After the attack, the couple are left for dead on the side of the road. Eric later dies in the hospital operating room while his fiancée Shelly dies at the scene.

In February of 1993 director Alex Proyas began filming The Crow which starred Brandon Lee as the titular character. With only three days left of filming, Brandon Lee died after an accidental shooting on the set. Released on May 13, 1994 the film quickly garnered a cult following and earned over $50 million dollars at the box office.

While the first film was a success with fans and critics alike, the three sequels The Crow: City of Angels (1996), The Crow: Salvation (2000), and The Crow: Wicked Prayer (2005) have less than favorable reviews.
