The Crow continues to feather its nest.
The highly anticipated remake of the 1994 cult favorite this week added another member to its cast, according to a report on comicbook.com.
Danny Huston (Wonder Woman) will join lead Bill Skarsgard (the It franchise) and Grammy nominee SKA Twigs in the film that’s shooting in Prague and Germany. 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)–will again draw from the 1980s James O’Barr comic book.
The basic storyline deals with how musician Eric Draven and his fiancee are murdered by a gang after their car breaks down, and how Draven is resurrected by a crow and exacts his revenge against his killers.
As all fans know, the original film–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 horror, the movie was a hit with fans and critics, earning $94 million on a $23-million budget.
Another aborted attempt to reboot the original was made in 2017–with director Corin Hardy and star Jason Momoa–but financial woes doomed that feature before it could gain any momentum.
