The Crow Reboot Will Begin Filming In Europe This Summer

Rupert Sanders' The Crow revival is intended to be the most advanced effort at the concept, with production planned to begin this summer in Central Europe.

The Crow revival is finally moving off, with production expected to begin this summer in central Europe. After numerous failed relaunch efforts, original producer Edward R. Pressman collected the final basis of a new ensemble for the 1994 cult hit directed by Alex Proyas. Under the direction of Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, Bill Skarsgard will portray the major antihero, Eric Draven, who will be supported by British singer-actress FKA twigs. While past upstart ventures had significant stars associated to them and the passion to create the film, none had been able to move forward until now.


According to Deadline, the reinvention of The Crow will begin in the summer of 2022. The actors and crew will shoot in Prague as well as numerous unnamed sites throughout Germany. FilmNation Entertainment, the film's foreign financing representatives, will hawk it at the Cannes market, which opens next week, before main filming begins.

 

Getting a camera crew in front of a cast for The Crow has been more difficult than imagined, with filmmaker Corin Hardy's reimagining starring Aquaman actor Jason Momoa coming closest. With this statement, fans may celebrate that Sanders' project, like its undead protagonist, could finally bring a modern Crow picture to life. In that regard, Skarsgrd will have to work hard to prove himself as a suitable successor to the late Brandon Lee, who played Draven in the 1994 picture. The thought of an old-world European set may, at the very least, enhance his performance by providing the necessary gothic mood that a Crow remake need.
