It appears that the long-in-the-works reboot of ‘The Crow’ has lined up a new actor to play the dark hero, with Mashable reporting that Jason Momoa (‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Justice League’) is in talks for the film.

Based on James O’Barr’s beloved graphic novel, the reboot has award-winning music video and shorts director Corin Hardy (‘The Hallow’) behind the camera for the tale of Eric, a man who returns from the grave as The Crow on a mission to avenge his fiancé’s murder so that his soul can finally rest.

The Alex Proyas-directed original starred Brandon Lee, who sadly passed away during production. Lee’s death lent an eerie and enduring quality to the cult classic.

Momoa is the latest actor to be linked the reboot, following the likes of Bradley Cooper (‘American Sniper’), Luke Evans (‘Free Fall’), and more recently ‘Ben-Hur’ star Jack Huston.

    do we really need to reboot the crow? Why not use one of the other crow-characters in the mythos? Eric Draven’s story is told, and will not be told better.

      Totally agree. Firstly, Brandon Lee was the one and only who told this story flawlessly. He didn`t play Eric Draven, he WAS Eric Draven! And I doubt that Momoa or anyone else will surpass the late Brandon Lee. Secondly, I don`t like Momoa, as, to my opinion, his face is so disgustingly negative. IMHO
