Original Crow producer files lawsuit against that reboot

That dark, gritty reboot of The Crow just hit another snag — and this time it's one of its own producers filing suit.

Producer Jeff Most, who worked on the original 1994 edition of The Crow and all those subsequent (and terrible) sequels, is not happy. He was also working on the reboot, at least until he felt studio Relativity Media breached his contract, according to Deadline.

Most is claiming breach of contract and good faith, deceit, fraud and contractual interference. In the complaint, he is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.

The reboot, which was actually shaping up pretty well with original creator James O’Barr attached to help put the pieces together, finally escaped development hell a while back when Luke Evans signed on for the starring role.

But this new lawsuit is another black eye for the long-gestating project. 

It’ll be interesting to see if the movie can escape these roadblocks and actually make it to the big screen — or if this might be the straw that breaks the camel's back and sends it back to the drawing board for a few more years.
