Aquaman star Jason Momoa is in talks to play the title role of Relativity’s The Crow reboot, according to a report by Mashable.
Corin Hardy (The Hallow) 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.
The story follows a musician who is murdered while trying to save his fiancé and 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 in talks for 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 (The Conjuring, Furious 7).
