Jason Momoa's The Crow reboot finally gets a release date

Jason Momoa is going to be playing Eric Draven in the reboot of The Crow.

'The Crow' reboot finally gets its wings. Sony has confirmed the news in a recent statement.

The 1994 cult classic 'The Crow' remains to be one of the most iconic films ever made. The movie, which was originally a book, follows an ill-fated tale of a young couple. Eric Draven and his fiance Shelly are brutally tortured and killed, the night before Halloween, which also happened to be the day of their wedding. Eric returns from the dead a year later to avenge his lover's death and goes on to kill the gang members responsible for the crime.

Even though there has been a lot of discussion behind the movie's reboot over the years, 'The Crow' never saw a confirmed remake. That all changed when Sony made the announcement for the movie, confirming that it is scheduled to hit the screens on October 11, 2019.

Jason Momoa is playing the dark protagonist. In the first movie adaptation, Eric Draven was played by Brandon Lee. Lee, who was 28 at the time of filming, was fatally shot during the movie's production. The accident ironically took place during the filming of a fight scene that was supposed to be used at the beginning of the movie. 

The new reboot is going to be an adaptation of the 1989 comic of the same name written by James O'Barr. Previous actors that were slated to play the part of The Crow were Luke Evans and Jack Huston, but Jason Momoa managed to score the deal in September 2016.

 Corin Hardy is still set to direct the movie. Shooting for the film is set to begin later this year.
