After a miserable year in development hell, Relativity Media and the Weinstein Company can start from scratch on their plans to reboot The Crow into theaters. The two distributors had a suit stemming from last April that had halted development on the project but the former company announced that the suit was settled out of court.
"The lawsuit between Relativity Media and The Weinstein Company concerning THE CROW has been amicably settled out of court, and the parties will continue to work on the film together as planned. In addition, Relativity Media has dismissed all of its claims against The Weinstein Company for any wrongdoing regarding the release and distribution of NINE, and The Weinstein Company has dismissed all of its claims against Relativity Media."
At one time, director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo had been charged with directing the revision of James O'Barr's comic creation with Bradley Cooper set to step in the title role. Both the director and actor eventually bowed out of the project and the only confirmed credit attached to the project is a script penned by Alex Tse. No word yet on whether his script will remain when a new director comes on board.
