Jason Momoa in Talks to Star in THE CROW Reboot

I've lost count of how many times we've written about The Crow over the past few years as the project worked its way through the ups and downs of development, had actors and directors join and leave, and its studio experience bankruptcy. It eventually got to the point where I thought the remake would never happen at all, but now the movie has a new star, and he could generate the necessary heat to finally push it across the finish line.

Mashable reports that Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, upcoming Aquaman) is in talks to play the title role for director Corin Hardy (The Hallow), who apparently wasn't booted off the project as once rumored. Momoa seems like a good fit; though he's far more physically imposing than original star Brandon Lee (who tragically died in an accident during filming of the 1994 original movie), the former Khal Drogo has the ability to tap into a darkness that should benefit this character well.

If all goes according to plan, the new version of The Crow will reportedly come out before the solo Aquaman film, meaning sometime before 2018. What do you think about the new casting?
