[USA], Sept 2 (ANI): 'The Crow' reboot has found a new home.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the long-in-the-works remake of the cult supernatural revenge action movie that starred Brandon Lee, titled 'The Crow Reborn', has landed at Sony Pictures, which has signed to distribute the feature project.

The project spent almost a decade at Relativity with various directors and actors coming and going.

When the company went under, the project went into limbo.

Jason Momoa and Corin Hardy were last on board as star and director and according to the sources the plan does includes them coming on in the near term.

The original title was directed by Alex Proyas and featured Lee as a man brought back from the dead to avenge his own death, as well as his girlfriend's.

The movie became a cult hit not just due to style and resonating story but partially due to Lee's accidental death during production.

Sources say the reboot will be a more faithful adaptation of the indie comic created by James O'Barr that was first published in 1989.

Highland Film Group will also handle international sales. (ANI)
