The Crow
Relativity Media and The Weinstein Company have reached an out of court settlement regarding the lawsuit surrounding the planned remake of 1994's The Crow.

Variety relays the joint statement from the two companies: "The parties will continue to work on the film together as planned. In addition, Relativity Media has dismissed all of its claims against The Weinstein Company for any wrongdoing regarding the release and distribution of Nine, and The Weinstein Company has dismissed all of its claims against Relativity Media."

The Weinstein Company had filed in injunction last spring regarding Relativity's remake of the original film and specifically the distribution rights to the project. Relativity followed with a claim that TWC "intentionally masked its financial problems in order to induce Relativity to finance [the] musical Nine."

So now The Crow can go ahead, with 28 Weeks Later's director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo currently onboard.


  1. just keep the movie rolling forward. the original Crow will always be the best because it was done with hard work and love for the project. This is going to be our time to remember what the crow stands for and never forget it. good luck with making the movie. I can't wait to see the final product when its finished.

  2. no. terrible terrible terrible.

  3. Worst idea ever! I honestly wouldn't watch the remake

  4. Why not give it a chance before you judge.

  5. Unless Brandon Lee rose from the grave like in the original and looked the same then please please please dont take that risk at my favorite film from a child to now...please dont...
