The Crow has landed.
The much-anticipated remake of the 1994 cult favorite The Crow reportedly has wrapped shooting in Prague after a 10-week production schedule, according to The Prague Reporter.
The film shot across numerous locations in the Old Town and New Town neighborhoods of the Czech capital, according to reports. One of the major set pieces for the remake was shot at Prague’s Rudolfinum concert hall, with hundreds of extras in formal attire.
In addition, the movie also shot at the brand-new Penzing Studios outside Munich, Germany, with some studio work taking place at Barrandov Studios in Prague.
The film–directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) from a screenplay by Zach Baylin (King Richard)–stars Bill Skarsgard (the It franchise) in the title role, along with Grammy nominee SKA Twigs and Danny Huston (Wonder Woman). No release window has yet been announced.
The remake 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–as all fans know–by the tragic on-set death of star Brandon Lee. Despite that, the film was received well by both moviegoers and critics, earning $94 million on a $23-million budget and becoming a fan favorite.
