The controversial remake of The Crow starring Jason Momoa now has an official release date, which might cause even more of a ruckus than before. Fans were already up in arms about a remake of the first film, with even the original director publicly voicing his opinion against it for the sake of the late Brandon Lee.
However, Sony is pushing through and the movie will officially come out on October 11, 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Considering how the remake has previously struggled to get production started, having a confirmed release date is a huge step forward. Momoa is staying as the lead and Sony has promised that it will be a faithful adaptation of the original comic from James O' Barr. Corin Hardy, whose horror film The Nun comes out this year, will be directing the project.
Prior to this remake, there had been sequels to the original film, though many felt they were bad or lackluster at best. It's clear that the first movie impacted audiences, with many viewers not wanting to see the remake get made for the memory of Brandon Lee. Now that it is getting made, we can only hope that this is a good movie.
The Crow comes out on October 11, 2019.
