I don’t believe in literal curses, though I do believe that–for whatever reason–some productions are more troubled in others and you can’t get more ‘troubled’ than The Crow.
Keep in mind that Brandon Lee was killed during production on the original film–shot at close range by a blank–and while no one has died during the remake, the movie still can’t seem to hold on to lead actors.
The first to leave was Luke Evans, who left in January. Most recently his replacement, Jack Huston, has abandoned the production.
And if this weren’t bad enough, the company producing the film, Relativity Media, is walking a financial tightrope as well, making the possibility that we won’t see a reimagined Crow anytime soon a very real possibility.
