REPORT: Momoa in Talks To Star in "The Crow" Reboot

A new report indicates that Jason Momoa is in talks to star in the upcoming reboot of "The Crow."

Momoa shared the following post to Instagram with "The Crow" helmer Corin Hardy, suggesting he could have sealed "the deal" for the part. Mashable notes that Momoa was indeed circling the role -- so it looks like this photo could be confirmation of the "Aquaman" star's casting.

The site notes that Momoa's casting would not interfere with "Aquaman," which is slated to release in theaters after "The Crow."

Hardy previously indicated he was leaving "The Crow," but this report seems to contradict that development.

The long-gestating reboot of "The Crow" has taken a while to get off the ground, thanks in part to Relativity Media's bankruptcy delaying production. Producer Dana Brunetti ("The Social Network") was brought in to help "steer" the company creatively as it recuperated from the financial loss.

The original 1994 "The Crow," starring Brandon Lee in his final film role, is based on James O'Barr's acclaimed indie comic of the same name. The story follows the resurrected Eric Draven who, with the help of a mystical bird, sets off to avenge his murdered fiance by tracking down her killers.

"The Crow" reboot doesn't have a release date.
