Jason Momoa has dropped his biggest hint yet that The Crow reboot is finally getting the go ahead with the Game of Thrones actor in the titular role.
Talk of a return to the comic book franchise that wowed audiences in the early 1990s has been rife for close to a decade.
But things finally look like they are moving in the right direction, after the character’s creator James O’Barr, confirmed to ScreenGeek that pre-production on the movie, tentatively called The Crow Reborn, would start in 2018.
Momoa had previously been lined up to play the Crow, with Corin Hardy directing the film.
However, delays saw Hardy initially leave the project, throwing the Aquaman actor’s involvement into doubt. Now it appears that Hardy is back on board, while Momoa has taken to Instagram to all but confirm his own involvement in the project.
“I’ve been waiting for sooooo long,” he writes under an artist’s rendering of the Crow. “@corinhardy let’s do this brother aloha.”
In some quarters the comments are being read as an announcement of sorts by Momoa, that work on the project was set to commence.
However, one alternative interpretation is that Momoa is growing increasingly frustrated by the delays and is issuing Hardy a now or never ultimatum.
The Game of Thrones star would not be the first to grow frustrated by the slow progress.
Plans for a reboot of The Crow have been in the offing for a decade. Bradley Cooper and Luke Evans have both previously been in the frame to play the character, before walking away from the plans following multiple delays.
There could yet be more delays this time around too, meaning it’s probably not worth getting excited about The Crow Reborn until fans actually get a trailer or something a little more substantial.
