For those who said they wouldn’t believe The Crow was taking flight again until a new movie was actually released, well, we’re one huge step closer to that reality this month.
According to the website The Prague Reporter, the 10-week-long production on The Crow reboot starring Bill Skarsgård (IT) as Eric Draven just wrapped up in Prague last week!
The website reports, “During a lengthy 10-week shoot, The Crow shot across numerous locations in the Old Town and New Town neighborhoods of the Czech capital. One of the major set pieces for The Crow was shot at Prague’s Rudolfinum concert hall, and involved the participation of hundreds of extras in formal attire.”
“According to documentation filed with the city, The Crow was registered as a TV production, with a total of six episodes shot on Prague locations,” The Prague Reporter goes on to state. However, “This information has not been confirmed by those involved with the production, and previous reports identify the project as a feature film.”
As far as we’ve heard, The Crow is indeed a feature film from director Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman, Ghost in the Shell), with Bill Skarsgård (IT) leading the cast as Eric Draven and singer/actor FKA Twigs co-starring. Danny Huston (30 Days of Night) also stars.
Zach Baylin (King Richard) wrote script, with the new movie of course based on James O’Barr’s original graphic novel that spawned a previous feature film franchise.
Producers on this fresh new reimagining include Molly Hassell (Braven, Terminal), Victor Hadida (Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises), John Jencks (Honest Thief, Guns Akimbo), and Edward R. Pressman (American Psycho, The Crow, Wall Street).
In the 1994 movie starring the late Brandon Lee, Eric Draven’s fiancée is killed alongside Draven, setting the film’s revenge storyline into motion. It spawned a handful of sequels.
