Jason Momoa's 'The Crow' Sets 2019 Release Date
The Crow is flying into 2019.
The remake of the Brandon Lee film will open Oct. 11, 2019, Sony announced Friday.
Jason Momoa is expected to star. Corin Hardy, who has the horror film The Nun out later this year, will helm the project, a remake of the 1994 supernatural revenge thriller. Alex Proyas directed the original film, in which Lee starred as a man brought back from the dead in order to avenge the death of his girlfriend, as well as his own. The film became a cult hit, in part because Lee was killed in a tragic on-set accident during production.
The new The Crow is said to be a faithful adaptation of James O’Barr's indie comic, first published in 1989.
Sony also set dates for two other films. A Dog's Way Home, an adaptation of A Dog's Purpose author W. Bruce Cameron's best-selling book, opens Jan. 11, 2019. He wrote the screenplay with his wife Cathryn Michon. Charles Martin Smith is directing with Ashley Judd and Edward James Olmos starring.
Meanwhile, Miss Bala opens Jan. 25, 2019. The film is a remake of a 2011 Mexican drama about a woman who enters a beauty contest but is then swept up in a deadly crime ring. Catherine Hardwicke is directing.
