The Crow reimagining – no, it’s actually happened – wraps filmins

After well over a decade of being mired in development hell, the reimagining of The Crow has actually wrapped production.

It feels like stories regarding a reboot of 1994’s The Crow have been circulating forever. After 14 years of trying to get another version of the film going (something we covered in detail here), there was always half a thought that the latest incarnation might fall apart, even when cameras began to roll.

But crikey.

It’s been announced today – and we had to double check – that production on the film has been completed with The Prague Reporter revealing that shooting on the film is done. But even now there’s an odd wrinkle to the tale. The report details that scenes were shot across ‘a lengthy 10-week shoot,  shot across numerous locations in the Old Town and New Town neighbourhoods of the Czech capital. One of the major set pieces for The Crow was shot at Prague’s Rudolfinum concert hall, and involved the participation of hundreds of extras in formal attire.’

Here’s the odd part though: the report also reveals that the production has been classified as ‘a TV production, with a total of six episodes shot on Prague locations.’

To be clear, that’s based on documentation filed by the production rather that a public announcement and probably an error of some kind as so far. Everything we’ve been told suggests that the project will be a feature film.

Pennywise himself, Bill Skarsgard will be applying the eyeliner as Eric Draven in the upcoming remake and according to the report, there’ll be lots of extras in their birthday suits appearing alongside him. Yikes.

This version of The Crow is being directed by Rupert Sanders who previously helmed Snow White And The Huntsman and Ghost In The Shell. The budget is reportedly $50m and the film is tentatively scheduled to release next summer.
