20 Crazy Details Behind The Making Of The Crow

Based on James O'Barr's comic book, 1994's The Crow was a groundbreaking work of stylistic fantasy action. Simultaneously blending elements of the past while also pioneering a new style of movies for the future, Alex Proyas' film won over critics and audiences alike with its unique blend of dark fantasy, horror, and action, pioneering a new style of revenge film.

However, it's impossible to talk about The Crow without discussing the freak on-set accident that struck down a rising star in his prime. Brandon Lee, son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, was just beginning his ascent to what was certainly going to be a long and acclaimed career when a weapon malfunctioned while filming a scene and claimed his life during what was only his third American film role. Lee's passing definitely hangs heavy over the movie, but The Crow has also been praised for serving as

The Crow Remake Gets Completely Scrubbed from Sony's Schedule

The Crow Remake Gets Completely Scrubbed from Sony's Schedule
It may be time to finally give up on holding onto any hope whatsoever that The Crow remake is ever going to happen. Recently, both director Corin Hardy and Jason Momoa bailed on the project, which was getting very near production. This is the latest in a long series of setbacks for the movie, which just can't seem to catch a real break, despite a lot of people giving it a go over the years. Now, Sony has officially pulled The Crow from their release schedule, which may well be the final nail in the coffin, at least for a while.

The remake has been in the works for the better part of a decade, with the movie transferring to several different studios during that time period. There was some renewed hope when Sony stepped up in September 2017 to revive the project, with Jason Momoa attached to star. Unfortunately, the

Sony pulls The Crow remake from its release schedule

Having spent a number of years stuck in development hell before the bankruptcy of then-rights holder Relativity Media, it looked as though the long-gestating remake of The Crow had been brought back from the dead this past September when Sony Pictures announced that it had picked up the project.

However, things fell apart in May when – just weeks before shooting was about to begin – director Corin Hardy and star Jason Momoa both announced that they had exited the movie due to creative differences with producer Samuel Hadida.

That wasn’t the first time the remake had lost a director or star, but it may well be the final time, as Exhibitor Relations is now reporting that the film has been pulled from its October 11th 2019 release date and is now no longer part of Sony’s upcoming slate…

Sony Officially Kills The Crow By Pulling The Film From Its Release Schedule

For better or worse, it doesn’t look like we’re going to get that reboot of The Crow starring Aquaman’s Jason Momoa anytime soon. While the remake of the 1994 gothic action fantasy film was set to start shooting in the coming weeks with an October 2019 release date in mind, Momoa and director Corin Hardy both exited the project due to creative differences back in May.

It was a big shock as things had looked to have been progressing relatively well, too, what with Hardy poised to switch gears from The Nun to The Crow before the year’s end. Pre-production was already underway, and April even brought word that the director and his team had planned to get the cameras rolling in Budapest, Hungary fairly soon. But that was before a speedbump emerged in the form of – you guessed it! – creative differences.

Now, adding even more insult to injury,

The Nun Comic-Con Poster Exposes the Demon Hiding Within

The Nun Comic-Con Poster Exposes the Demon Hiding Within
A new poster for The Nun has scared its way online. For the second year in a row, Warner Bros. and New Line are bringing their upcoming slate of horror movies to San Diego Comic-Con for an event known as ScareDiego.

Ahead of the event, the studio has released this brand new poster for horror fans to feast their eyes upon.

This new poster is quite a bit different than the one that was released ahead of the teaser trailer.

Jason Momoa to lead Apple’s sci-fi drama See

Back in January it was announced that Apple has granted a straight-to-series order for See, a sci-fi drama from writer Steven Knight and director Francis Lawrence, and now comes word that Game of Thrones and Aquaman star Jason Momoa has been cast in the lead role.

Deadline reports that See is “an epic, world-building drama set in a future when the human race has lost the sense of sight, and society has had to find new ways to interact, to build, to hunt, to survive. All of that is challenged when a set of twins with sight is born.” Momoa is set to portray Baba Voss, described as a fearless warrior, leader and guardian.

The Nun Trailer Arrives, the Darkest Chapter of The Conjuring Universe

The Nun Trailer Arrives, the Darkest Chapter of The Conjuring Universe
The first trailer for The Nun has arrived. Warner Bros. and New Line found themselves something special in 2013 when The Conjuring was released. Not only was it a horror movie that did big business at the box office, but it was one of the relatively rare mainstream horror movies that managed to win over critics as well. It wasn't considered to just be good in the realm of horror, it was plainly a damn good movie all around. But instead of just making sequel after sequel, the studio decided that there was an entire universe to be had with The Conjuring. The latest spin-off in that universe is The Nun and we now have our first real look at what that's going to be.

This idea was spun out of The Conjuring 2. It's centered on the demon nun Valak who made her debut in James Wan's sequel. Interestingly enough,

The Nun Trailer Is Coming on Wednesday

The Nun Trailer Is Coming on Wednesday
The first trailer for The Nun is coming our way next week. The Conjuring was a tremendous success both critically and commercially. Warner Bros. and New Line not only saw the opportunity for sequels in the wake of that success, but for spin-offs as well that could build out a whole horror universe. The next chapter in that horror universe is coming our way this fall and the first trailer for the upcoming spin-off has been confirmed for Wednesday by James Wan.

Even though he hasn't directed any of the spin-offs from The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, James Wan has been heavily involved as a producer.

Suspiria: The right way to remake?

Tom Jolliffe looks ahead to the Suspiria remake…

Remakes or reboots. The year is 2018 and we’ve firmly established that the movie making engine runs largely off these, as well as sequels and adaptations. If it’s been done once to a degree of success and cult appeal, then why not do it again?

It would be a mistake to say that remakes are inherently awful. To remake something requires a level of cult appeal in the first place, and thus the studio notion that there will be an audience again. The truth is most remakes or reboots are terrible. Sometimes they do get it right though. John Carpenters, The Thing is an all time classic. It was a remake. This was even in an era when many remakes were known for being pale imitators of the original source. Since the turn of the century though, the amount of reboots has gone through the roof.

Jason Momoa in The Crow Make-Up Revealed by Director Corin Hardy

Jason Momoa in The Crow Make-Up Revealed by Director Corin Hardy
It's been a long and difficult road for The Crow remake. It was announced last week that director Corin Hardy and star Jason Momoa had left the project like the string of actors and directors who have also quit over the years. Production was set to begin in Belgium in the coming weeks, but it is officially grounded again. It is rumored that creative and financial differences with Samuel Hadida were the reasoning behind the split. These creative and financial differences were also a problem for Sony, who was set to distribute the film worldwide. Sources close to The Crow remake imply that Sony hadn't ever even closed the deal because of the problems with Hadida. Now, Corin Hardy has taken to social media to share a picture of himself and Jason Momoa in the Draven makeup, teasing what could have been.

Earlier this week it was announced that star Jason Momoa and director Corin Hardy have both exited the long-planned remake of The Crow, with the duo becoming the latest in a long line of talent to depart the troubled project.

Corin Hardy Says Exiting ‘The Crow’ Reboot Was ‘The Hardest Decision Of All’

But I poured everything I had into the last 3.5 years of work, to try & create something which honoured what the Crow stood for; from James O’Barr’s affecting graphic novel, to Alex Proyas’s original movie, with great respect to Brandon Lee and with the desire to make something bold and new, that myself, as an obsessive fan, could be proud of.”
