Might this actually be happening? There’s actual movement on the new movie version of The Crow, which is now set to film in Germany.
The cliché of ‘development hell’ could very well have been invented to describe the attempt to get a reboot/remake/reimagining of The Crow off the ground. We’ve charted the whole story in a separate article here, but the short version is this saga has been going on for over a decade, with a lot of stars and directors coming close to getting the new The Crow off the ground.
But, just as it seemed like hell would freeze over before the new film got made, it turns out that there’s a bit of a frost in the underworld. The new Crow – don’t hold us to it – looks like it’s actually happening.
This iteration is going to star Bill Skarsgard in the title role, with Danny Huston on co-starring duties. Meanwhile, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’ Rupert Wyatt is set to direct. And now we learn that the film has been booked into Penzing Studios just outside of Munich to house the production.
The film will also shoot around Prague and Munich as well and, well, it’s actually got studio space booked. Someone must at least have paid a deposit somewhere down the line, because if someone says they want your studio to shoot a Crow movie, a deposit is the very least you should demand.
There’s now work to build the film in the newly-opened Penzing Studios space, so the whole thing isn’t out of the woods yet. But this feels close. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more…
