The long gestating reboot of The Crow will have to wait even longer after Jason Momoa and director Corin Hardy dropped out of the project…

The Crow won’t be flying again any time soon.

On Thursday, Jason Momoa announced that he will no longer star in the long awaited project that was expected to reboot The Crow franchise that was launched back in 1994 with Brandon Lee in the starring role.

“I’ve waited 8 years to play this dream role,” Momoa wrote on Instagram. “I love you Corin Hardy and Sony Pictures, unfortunately I may have to wait 8 more. Not our team. But I swear I will. James O’Barr sorry to let you down I won’t on the next. This film needs to be set free. And to the fans. Sorry. I can’t play anything but what this film deserves and it needs love. I’m ready when it’s right.”

A separate report from Deadline stated that financial problems plagued The Crow reboot with Sony Pictures also expected to drop out of the project after continued issues with Davis Films, who own the underlying rights to the movie and were financing the picture.

Filming was supposed to begin in Budapest in about five weeks time before Momoa and Hardy exited the project, effectively putting a stop to The Crow going into production any time soon.

Momoa has talked often about his passion to play The Crow with the newest adaptation expected to stay closer to the original work from creator James O’Barr.

Now it appears Momoa will have to wait even longer if The Crow reboot will ever get off the ground at all.
