According to THR, inside sources are claiming that pre-production on The Crow in the UK has stalled and an entire production team has left the project, along with several department heads. Sources also said that Relativity is currently preparing an official statement on the status of The Crow, though one insider said that Relativity “continue[s] to be excited” by the property.
Relativity has bigger problems right now, however. The company is currently filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy due to owing hundreds of millions of dollars in debt, and this week confirmed that 75 people – a fifth of Relativity’s total staff – have been laid off. The studio’s financial woes have obviously had an impact on its current projects, and the latest reports indicate that The Crow has been hit hard.
