After 15 years in development, The Crow is finally getting a reboot starring Bill Skarsgård. Get ready to witness the dark revenge story of Erik Draven as it comes to life once again on the big screen.
Nearly three decades after the original 1994 film, The Crow is making its return. The movie has been stuck in development hell for 15 years, but now, a release date for the reboot is within reach. Director Rupert Sanders and screenwriter Zach Baylin have reimagined James O’Barr’s 1989 graphic novel, promising a modern take on the beloved story.
The original 1994 movie, starring Brandon Lee as Erik Draven, gained a cult following despite the tragic accident that took Lee’s life during filming. Now, anticipation for The Crow reboot is soaring. Fans, old and new, are eagerly awaiting the release date and are bound to be blown away.
According to producer Sam Pressman, the upcoming movie will stay true to the original’s unique essence. It’s not your typical superhero film but rather an anti-Marvel film that breaks the genre’s rules. Pressman also hinted that The Crow universe may expand beyond this one film with the possibility of video games, an animated series, and more.
The Crow reboot has been in the works for over a decade, with the current iteration announced in 2022. Lionsgate acquired the distribution rights in 2023. While a specific release date has yet to be revealed, Lionsgate plans to release the film in 2024. Given the ongoing industry strikes and the lack of early footage, a mid-late 2024 release seems most likely.
Bill Skarsgård, known for his roles in John Wick: Chapter 4 and It, will step into the iconic shoes of Erik Draven. No further casting announcements have been made yet, but stay tuned as more details emerge closer to the release window.
