If there’s something you possibly can rely on, it’s that Hollywood isn’t too distant from making yet another Crow reboot announcement. This time round, Invoice Skarsgård (It’s Pennywise the Dancing Clown) is hooked up to don Eric Draven’s harlequin make-up, marking the tip of Jason Momoa’s tenure of making an attempt to get The Crow remade. There ought to be a Pope-like smoke sign each time actors cross this baton.
With Skarsgård set to star, Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders is on the helm, with a script from Zach Baylin (who was just lately up for an Oscar for King Richard). Issues do appear to be shifting fairly rapidly, as the Hollywood Reporter notes there’s a manufacturing begin date set for June. It’s not totally stunning as a result of current surge of goth unhappy boi vigilantes. And that’s as a result of vengeance seekers like The Batman and Moon Knight have particular hyperlinks of their DNA to Alex Proyas’ 1994 tackle The Crow.
Proyas’ adaptation of the seminal James O. Barr comedian follows the story of Eric Draven, a person who returns from the useless (with the assistance of a supernatural crow entity) intent on avenging his beloved fiancée after they had been each brutally murdered on Halloween. Proyas’ trendy, neo-noir adaptation has turn out to be a cult traditional; it’s acquired supernatural horror parts, heavy drama, biting humor, and a lot of coronary heart. It was additionally forward of its time in grounding a darkish comedian e-book hero in a grounded and gritty actual world—and it has a infamous real-world tragedy hanging over it, since star Brandon Lee was by chance killed throughout filming due to prop negligence. (Additionally, its Nineteen Nineties soundtrack was killer then and now.)
The record of other actors who’ve been attached to a reboot of this property through the years, in addition to Momoa, consists of Mark Wahlberg, Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans, and possibly extra. We’re not holding our breath for this one, people, and once again, we have now to ask: do we actually want a Crow reboot in any respect? What do you assume Skarsgård and Saunders’ chances are high of creating this factor really fly?
