Veteran Actor Danny Huston Joined Bill Skarsgard and FKA Twigs in The crowthe new adaptation of the comic created by James O’Barr.
Rupert Sanders is directing the feature film that has now been in production for weeks in the Czech Republic.
Crow was an indie comic written and drawn by James O’Barr in the late ’80s that told the dark story of a man and his fiancée who are attacked and murdered by a gang after the couple’s car breaks down. The man is resurrected by a crow and exacts revenge on those who took his life and the life of his love.
It was famously adapted in 1994 into a movie starring Brandon Lee, who died after an on-set gun accident. Several sequels and a series followed.
Zach Baylin wrote the script for this version, in which Skarsgard plays the vengeful man.
Details about Huston’s character have not been disclosed.
Producing are Molly Hassell (Braven, Terminal), Victor Hadida (Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises), John Jencks (Honest thief, guns Akimbo), and original Crow producer, Edward R. Pressman.
CAA Media Finance handles the film’s domestic distribution rights, while FilmNation Entertainment handles international sales.
Genre fans may know Huston from playing the villain in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as well as Gal Godot’s Wonder Woman. The actor has a run on hit series Yellowstone as well as the acclaimed HBOs succession.
He is represented by UTA, Untitled Entertainment, Julian Belfrage Associates and Myman Greenspan.
