The 1994 The Crow movie is one of the best works of gothic action around. A brilliant blend of atmosphere and thrills, The Crow movie has become a beloved cult classic since its release. Talks of a new Crow movie have been going on for many years now, and finally, it looks like the film has found its lead.

If you’re unfamiliar with the premise of The Crow, it involves a young man who has been wronged by some bad people – and by wronged, we mean that him and his girlfriend have been killed. The young man becomes a spirit of vengeance, seeking out those who brought harm to him and his love. The movie is based off the late ’80s/early ’90s comic of the same name.

It has been confirmed that the lead for this new Crow movie is none other than Bill Skarsgård. If that name rings any bells, it might be because you’ve heard his name in a pretty popular horror movie called IT. Skarsgård played the film’s iconic and chilling villain, Pennywise the Clown. Skarsgård took part in the IT remakes, being that of the 2017 film and its 2019 sequel.

We think Skarsgård is perfect for The Crow! He will also be joined by that of singer FKA Twigs. Speaking to this new version of The Crow, its director, Rupert Sanders, shared the following:

The Crow is beautiful, dark, poetic and sometimes disturbing. It is a story of love, loss, grief and revenge. It is a great honor to revisit James O’Barr’s iconic comic and reimagine The Crow as a foreboding voice of today.”

Are you excited to see this new version of The Crow? Have you seen the 1994 version?

The original Crow movie starred Brandon Lee, the son of Bruce Lee. While the film is loved by many around the world, it is also attached to a horrible circumstance regarding Brandon. During the filming of The Crow, there was a scene involving Brandon and another individual using a prop gun; unfortunately, the prop gun had an actual bullet in it, which hit Brandon and led to his death.
