According to THR, Danny Huston (’30 Days of Night’) has joined the cast of the reboot of ‘The crow‘, which will be starring Bill Skarsgard (‘It: The Thing’).
Unfortunately, details about his character have not been released.
The cast will also include the singer FKA twigs, who will play Eric Draven’s girlfriend/fiancée. Despite the role not having much prominence in the original film, the website The Hollywood Reporter claims that the character will be one of the protagonists in the new version.
Rupert Sanders (‘Snow White and the Huntsman’) will direct.
“The Raven is a beautiful, dark, poetic and even disturbing story,” said the director in an official statement. “It’s a story of love, loss, grief and revenge. It’s a great honor to revisit James O’Barr’s iconic comics and reimagine Crow as an ominous voice for today.”
The original plot follows Eric Dravon, who returns from the dead to hunt down his killers and avenge the murder of his fiancée with the help of a mystical bird.
The screenplay was written by Zach Baylinwho was recently nominated for an Oscar for his work on ‘King Richard: Creating Champions‘.

Edward R. Pressman and Malcolm Gray will serve as producers.

Due to a production failure, the weapon had been loaded with live ammunition, and the powder from the blank caused the projectile that was stuck in the barrel to be accidentally released, puncturing the torso of Lee.
The accident happened just eight days before the film was completed.
