Jason Momoa in Talks for ‘The Crow’ Reboot at Relativity

“Aquaman” star Jason Momoa is in talks to play the title role of Relativity’s “The Crow” reboot.

Corin Hardy will direct the film, which is based on the comic book property of the same name. The 1994 adaptation starred Brandon Lee in his last major film role prior to his untimely death, which occurred on the set of “The Crow.”

The story follows a musician who is murdered while trying to save his fiancé. He is then brought back from the dead by supernatural forces and seeks revenge.

Relativity, which recently emerged from Bankruptcy, has had the film in development since 2012 with actors like Bradley Cooper and Jack Huston also circling the role.

Momoa, who is playing Aquaman in the DC and Warner Bros. franchise, made his first appearance in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” He will next be seen in “Justice League” before starring in his solo “Aquaman” film set for 2018. That film also stars Amber Heard and will be directed by James Wan.

Momoa’s also starring in Netflix’s series Frontier and the indie “Braven.” He’s repped by APA, LINK Entertainment and Edelstein, Laird & Sobel.

The news was first reported by Mashable.
