Last November, the Crow remake seemed to be on the right track, with director Corinne Hardy forging a new deal with Relativity despite rumors of the director leaving the project.|
The filming of the remake was supposed to start in the spring, but, as the portal The Hollywood Reporter found out, the film faced a different kind of problem.
Originally the producer of the original film Edward R. Pressman signed an agreement with Relativity in 2009 that the studio could direct three more films in the The Raven franchise. Now Pressman has filed a lawsuit demanding that Relativity be stripped of all rights to the remake and subsequent projects. The producer reasons his decision by the fact that the new management of the studio fired the director Corinne Hardy for no apparent reason, without even warning Pressman himself.
A hearing will take place tomorrow, but it looks like the filming of the Crow remake is not destined to start anytime soon. The project was left without a director and without a leading role, and so far only Jessica Brown-Findlay is listed in the cast.
