Given the franchise’s tragic history (including original star Brandon Lee’s on-set death during the film of the original film), you have to wonder if ‘The Crow’ is cursed. Just hours after the reboot of the franchise lost yet another director (J.

But don’t worry: Hardy comes with a pretty impressive reference from fellow director Edgar Wright, which means that this remake might actually be in solid hands … for the time being.

Yes, 'The Crow' reboot is still happening with director F. Javier Gutierrez at the helm, despite the fact that essentially all the big names being considered for the lead have failed to officially come aboard.
