Multiple sources confirmed to The Wrap that production on the hotly-anticipated motion picture will get underway in January 2017.
Jason Momoa, 37, was confirmed to be starring in the movie last month, and posted a picture of himself and Colin Hardy – who is directing the
project – on Instagram, confirming his role.
The caption read: “The only way to officially seal the deal as men Is a pint of black beauty. @guinness #sealthedeal #wearemarriednowf***er. #greatnewstocome. #dreamjob #cantwaittotelltheworld ALOHA ED ???????? (sic)”
The reboot of the 1994 fantasy film will be a new adaptation of James O’Barr’s classic comic book, which follows the story of Eric Draven, a murder victim who returns from the dead and seeks vengeance on those who murdered him.
The original version of the film starred the late Brandon Lee, who was accidentally shot during filming.
The former Game of Thrones actor will step into the role after filming wraps on his current project Justice League, in which he plays Aquaman.
Audiences were first introduced to Jason in the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and he is set to reprise his role for a third time in a standalone film in 2018.
Whilst filming for The Crow reboot is confirmed to be taking place in January, no release date has yet been finalized for the project.
