Yes, that's right: Sony, who recently did a tremendous job handling the release of another long-gestating project (The Dark Tower), has officially signed on to distribute the Crow remake, following a full decade of Relativity threatening to do it themselves.

The Crow Reborn has been a topic of conversation for some time now, with Aquaman star Jason Momoa said to be attached as the titular character. The trade says that the plan includes them coming on in the near term.

The Crow Reborn will be a reboot of the cult classic franchise as well as a more faithful adaptation of the original graphic novel written by James O'Barr. He dropped out of the lead role in August of that year, followed by Fresnadillo in October 2011.

The Crow was originally published as a four issue miniseries in 1989.

The original 1994 movie was directed by Alex Proyas and starred Brandon Lee as a man brought back from the dead to avenge his death and the murder of his girlfriend. Lee died during the film's production after he was shot with a defective blank. In the comics, too, O'Barr's character has been sequelized in quite a few different stories and formats, including a weird 2013 crossover with Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghostsbusters and The X-Files.

The Crow has a new nest. Do you think the project will finally get off the ground?
