As we’ve previously reported, it’s been a long, hard road out of hell for The Crow reboot– in 2010, Mark Wahlberg was in negotiations to wear the famous white face paint and leather duster…and then he walked. A year later, it was Bradley Cooper’s turn to be the guy everyone hoped would please not get the part, and he then satisfied those wishes. Earlier this year, James McAvoy was in talks, followed by Tom Hiddleston, who went so far as to enter into negotiations and preliminary makeup tests for the role, before Luke Evans managed to grab the part.
Now, the team behind The Crow reboot (including creator James O’Barr) are at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the new film. And hey, look, they even brought a new Comic-Con exclusive poster, which recalls the art from O’Barr’s original graphic novel:
But now, some bad news: it seems that Jeff Most—the titular producer behind Jeff Most Productions—has filing a lawsuit asking for $1 million due to an alleged breach of contract by the companies behind the new film (Relativity Media et al). Most has been involved in the entire Crow film franchise, and claims that Jeff Most Productions have not been properly involved and included in the production of this newest film, as he was promised a $400,000 salary and film deal by Relativity in May of 2012, but has not heard back since.
So will this cast a pall on the Comic-Con proceedings for The Crow? Stay tuned for more information.
