A new take on the cult classic The Crow is finally on the way. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bill Skarsgard has been tapped to star in the reboot.
Originally an indie comic created by James O’Barr in 1989, the story followed a young man named Eric who was killed alongside his fiancée by a gang. After being resurrected by a crow, he seeks vengeance against the murderers. The comic was eventually adapted into a 1994 feature film starring Brandon Lee.
Skarsgard, who portrayed Pennywise in the It films, will star in the reboot. The project is set to be helmed by Rupert Sanders, who is best known for directing Snow White and the Huntsman and Ghost in the Shell. Zack Baylin, who wrote King Richard starring Will Smith, has penned the script for the reboot. Edward R. Pressman and Malcolm Gray are producing the film.
This is not the first time a reboot of the franchise has been planned. In 2017 Jason Mamoa was set to take on the role but departed after a clash with producers.
