The Crow is winging its way to Germany.
The remake of the 1994 cult favorite is preparing to start shooting in Germany, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Crow will be the first major international production to film in the new Penzing Studios, a backlot recently opened in a former Air Force base some 30 miles west of Munich.
All virtual production reportedly will be done at Penzing, with locations shots being held in Prague and other parts of Munich. The production will carry out the bulk of its digital asset creation and VFX work in Bavaria, Germany.
As far as casting goes, Danny Huston (Wonder Woman) recently joined lead Bill Skarsgard (the It franchise) and Grammy nominee SKA Twigs in the reboot. No release window has yet been announced.
The new film–directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) from a screenplay by Zach Baylin (King Richard)–reportedly will adapt the 1980s James O’Barr comic book that “told the dark tale of a man and his fiancee who are killed by a gang after the couple’s car breaks down,” according to the synopsis. “The man is then resurrected by a crow and exacts vengeance on the gang members.”
The original The Crow–directed by Alex Proyas from a screenplay by David J. Schow and John Shirley–was marred forever by the tragic on-set death of star Brandon Lee. Despite that, the film was embraced by fans and critics, earning $94 million on a $23-million budget and becoming a fan-favorite over the last 28 years.
