The Crow Reboot Gets A Director

the-crow-idwRelativity Studios has selected Corin Hardy (The Hallow) to direct their remake of The Crow. Other than The Hallow which comes out next year, Hardy is mainly known for his music video work with such acts as Ed Sheeran, Biffy Clyro and The Prodigy, but he was recommended to the producers of the film by Edgar Wright.

The Crow is based on the comic by James O'Barr and was originally adapted in 1994 by Alex Proyas and starred Brandon Lee.

Hardy replaces F. Javier Gutierrez who was originally set to direct but left to head the next installment of The Ring franchise. Gutierrez will remain on as an executive producer.
