AceShowbiz - Hawaiian-born Jason Momoa sure knows how to please fans, especially fans of "The Crow". The actor, who will star in upcoming "The Crow Reborn" with director Corin Hardy on board, teased the production start of the reboot via his Instagram account.
Momoa posted a couple of photos, one of which was a haunting poster made by LostMind while the other featured him posing with Hardy. The 38-year-old actor captioned the post, "I've been waiting for sooooo long. @corinhardy let's do this brother aloha."
The remake of "The Crow" has been in development hell for so long. It's been developed for almost 10 years, with several actors attached to and then detached from the project. Some of the actors previously attached were James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston and Luke Evans. Not just the actors, the film also went through a series of director changes, namely Stephen Norrington ("Blade"), F. Javier Gutierrez ("The Crooked Man") and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo ("%28 Weeks Later%"), until Hardy ("The Nun") was finally assigned to helm the film.
Before this teaser came out, Momoa was rumored to play Draven for quite some time without any confirmation whatsoever. However, the Instagram post confirmed the actor's involvement in the production. This teaser undoubtedly makes fans happy, because it has been a while since Alex Proyas' 1994 cult classic, and enthusiasts have been hoping to see the story in big screen again with the right director and the right actor. With Momoa's acting prowess and Hardy's talent to make horror films, it looks like the fans' dream is about to come true.
"The Crow", based on a comic book by James O'Barr, follows the story of Draven, a man brought back to life by a supernatural crow to avenge his girlfriend's murder as well as his own at the hands of some gang members. At this point, Sony has the rights to the comic book and the film intends to be a more faithful adaptation of the comic.
O'Barr revealed that the film would start its production in February 2018. The release date of the film is still unknown.
