‘The Crow’ Remake Lands New Director

Relativity Studios has tapped Corin Hardy to direct its remake of “The Crow,” replacing F. Javier Gutierrez.

The Crow” reboot is expected to begin shooting in the spring with Luke Evans set to star.

Producers are Edward Pressman, Kevin Misher, Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh, Jeff Most and Jeff Waxman. Gutierrez, Tucker Tooley, Bob and Harvey Weinstein and Dan Farah are exec producers.

Gutierrez became unavailable after he took on directing “The Ring 3” for Paramount.

Hardy’s credits include “The Hallow” and the animated short “Butterfly,” in addition to musicvideos for Ed Sheeran, Biffy Clyro, Keane, Paolo Nutini and the Prodigy.

James O’Barr, creator of the original “The Crow” graphic novel, came on board as a consultant last year when Gutierrez was attached to direct the adaptation written by Cliff Dorfman.

The original 1994 movie was based on O’Barr’s story of a musician revived from the dead to avenge the murders of himself and his fiancee. The star, Brandon Lee, was accidentally killed during filming; the film grossed more than $140 million worldwide.

The news was first reported by Deadline.com.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that no cast members were attached.
