Vengeance will be his.
The highly anticipated remake of the 1994 horror favorite The Crow now has a 2024 release window set, and–according to producer Ed Pressman–it will an event worth waiting for.
Pressman told Deadline that the reboot “has been a very crucial and integral part of our company (Pressman Film), and I’m really proud of the progress and the work that has been done. I think the movie is just going to blow people away.”
Pressman added that this is “such a unique property. It’s not a studio film–it’s not a Marvel film. I have the highest hopes for the film, and (director) Rupert Sanders is such a visionary.”
The remake–helmed by Sanders from a screenplay by Zach Baylin and Will Schneider–stars Bill Skarsgard, SKA Twigs, Danny Huston, Laura Birn, Sami Bouailla and Jordan Bolger.
No plot details have yet been revealed, but the feature is expected to follow the original–which was adapted from the 1980s comic books by James O’Barr and, of course, was marred by the death of star Brandon Lee.
The first film told “the dark tale of rock musician Eric Draven and his fiancee who are killed by a gang after their car breaks down.” But, as all fans know, Draven “is resurrected by a crow and exacts vengeance on the gang members.”
