The long-gestating The Crow reboot is one step closer to taking flight.
A new take on The Crow is finally coming to life, with Bill Skarsgård (IT) leading the cast as Eric Draven and singer/actor FKA Twigs co-starring.
Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman, Ghost in the Shell) is directing the “modern reimagining” of James O’Barr’s comic, with Zach Baylin (King Richard) writing.
In a fresh article over at Deadline, they report that FilmNation Entertainment is handling the project at the Cannes Market and that filming is now lined up to take place this coming summer in Prague and Germany (various locations).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is currently “well into pre-production” in Prague, with the shoot scheduled to begin in June.
Prague locations to be utilized for The Crow are not yet known, and the Czech capital may or may not play itself. Previous adaptations have been set in Detroit, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and other North American locales.
The 1994 version was well-received but left an unfortunate legacy as the final film of star Brandon Lee, son of Bruce Lee, was shot and killed during an on-set accident.
Over the past decade, directors such as Stephen Norrington, F. Javier Gutiérrez, and Corin Hardy have been attached to The Crow reboot, along with actors including Luke Evans and Jason Momoa.
