After numerous false starts, The Crow reboot has finally been given an official release date.

We've lost count of the number of times a new take on the gothic graphic novel has entered development only to end up being shelved or put on the back burner for one reason or another, but back in 2022, we got word that a reboot was moving forward with It star Bill Skarsgård in the lead role of Eric Draven, and Snow White and the Huntsman and Ghost in the Shell director Rupert Sanders behind the camera.

Now, Deadline is reporting that The Crow will take flight on June 7 later this year.

The synopsis reads: "Soulmates Eric Draven (Skarsgård) and Shelly Webster (FKA twigs) are brutally murdered when the demons of her dark past catch up with them. Given the chance to save his true love by sacrificing himself, Eric sets out to seek merciless revenge on their killers, traversing the worlds of the living and the dead to put the wrong things right."

The movie will also star Danny Huston, Laura Birn, Sami Bouajila, and Jordan Bolger in undisclosed roles. Zach Baylin and Will Schneider penned the script.

It sounds like this version might make some changes to James O’Barr's iconic comic series, which focused on a man named Eric Draven who, along with his fiance, is brutally murdered by a gang of thugs. One year later, he is resurrected by a mystical force in the form of a crow, and sets out to exact his vengeance.

Again, multiple filmmakers have attempted to get a retelling of this gothic tale of the ground, and while some fans will surely be overjoyed to hear that this re-adaptation has been given a new lease of life, the news may not be met with a particularly enthusiastic response from everyone.

Many feel Alex Proyas’ 1994 take on the material starring the late Brandon Lee did a perfect job of adapting the story, and in related news, the movie is being released for the first time on 4K Ultra HD and Steelbook for the first time on May 7.

Skarsgard and twigs are great casting. I'm cautiously optimistic.
ModHaterSLADE - 2/21/2024, 8:16 PM
Ghost In The Shell was meh, but Snow White and The Huntsmen was a fun watch for me so I'm interested to see how this turns out.
McMurdo - 2/21/2024, 8:33 PM
@ModHaterSLADE - nah both those were bad. Liken the casting but def potential for this to also be bad.
ModHaterSLADE - 2/21/2024, 9:29 PM
@McMurdo - Lol! Called a matter of opinion bruh. To each their own.
McMurdo - 2/21/2024, 10:26 PM
@ModHaterSLADE - facts. Didn't mean any disrespect ❤️

Wait a second, so it's not going to be a random killing by strangers, but people from her people with a grudge? I hate that and he's doing this in hopes of saving her? I hate every single change.
bobevanz - 2/21/2024, 8:23 PM
All of this sounds horrible. Like the crappy ending of the Spawn movie lol just use the comic!
Forthas - 2/21/2024, 8:32 PM
I am not expecting much but it is good to see another comic book film this year. Hope it is good!
GhostDog - 2/21/2024, 8:33 PM
Expecting the worst. Especially with this director
THEKENDOMAN - 2/21/2024, 8:41 PM
Bill has been doing some good stuff recently; I'm looking forward to the one where he is deaf and badass (Can someone here please remind me of the movie's name?) But yeah, the 1994 film was ahead of its time; I hope this can top it. It's a good love story; it must stay dark and keep the main characters relatable.

@THEKENDOMAN - Boy Kills World 😊
THEKENDOMAN - 2/22/2024, 4:03 AM
@CerealKiller1 - my man👊🏾
CerealKiller1 - 2/22/2024, 12:39 PM
@THEKENDOMAN - Couldn’t not share with you seeing as you mentioned it so recently, just released 😊

THEKENDOMAN - 2/22/2024, 1:24 PM
@CerealKiller1 - nice one matey. Yeah, this looks [frick]ing good. You know what? I think they should have chosen him for Lex Luthor.
CerealKiller1 - 2/22/2024, 1:53 PM
@THEKENDOMAN - All good bud 😊 Yeah I like Hoult, but Bill just has that underlying intensity that would’ve smashed Luthor!
THEKENDOMAN - 2/22/2024, 2:29 PM
@CerealKiller1 - Nuff said 👏🏾
TheVisionary25 - 2/21/2024, 8:44 PM
Not real familiar with the rest of the cast but Skarsgard & Huston are good casting for Eric & Top Dollar respectively (presumably for the latter).

The director has me concerned to an extent though so we’ll see…

Cautiously optimistic as of now!!.
Feralwookiee - 2/21/2024, 8:45 PM
The director gives me a lot of pause, and I just don't think this will work in modern Hollywood.

A R rating is not confirmed as far as I can tell and there's no way they can top the original's soundtrack if they're considering using present day music.

I'm hoping for the best, but assuming this will just be more slop.
ObserverIO - 2/22/2024, 6:05 AM
@Feralwookiee - I figure it will be like Ghost in the Shell, it'll homage some stuff from the original, but will otherwise be a vastly inferior version that people will soon forget.

The 1995 Ghost in the Shell continues to be a classic and so will the 1993 Crow movie.
Feralwookiee - 2/22/2024, 12:28 PM
@ObserverIO - Yeah.
I've got the same feeling on that.
TheUnworthyThor - 2/21/2024, 8:51 PM
Glad to be getting at least one more superhero movie this year. Too light this year for my tastes. Regardless I’m sure it will at least be better than Kraven.
marvel72 - 2/21/2024, 9:00 PM
Can't wait to own The Crow on 4k blu-ray.
As for the reboot, they have a good cast but director not a great choice but I am looking forward to seeing the trailer.
ProudPatriot76 - 2/21/2024, 9:05 PM
FKA Twigs is quite the stage name
TheJester187 - 2/21/2024, 9:38 PM
Finally!! But damn we can’t get a teaser poster?!
marvel72 - 2/22/2024, 12:53 PM
@TheJester187 - We should get a trailer soon.
harryba11zack - 2/21/2024, 9:52 PM
Dennis Hopper should have got an oscar for that role.
DarthAlgar - 2/21/2024, 9:52 PM
I'm too stubbornly in love with the original Brandon Lee film to be able to 100% accept this. That first movie was an experience as a kid.

This thing has been ongoing since the Luke Evans announcement. Possibly before.
Godzilla2000Zer - 2/21/2024, 10:11 PM
Wait this is actually happening
DocSpock - 2/22/2024, 12:42 AM


The Crow was great. It never needed sequels or a remake.

DanielPlainviewsGhost - 2/22/2024, 2:58 AM
@DocSpock - I have a soft spot for City of Angels. But everything else is hot garbage. Especially the fourth movie.
DocSpock - 2/22/2024, 9:22 AM
@DanielPlainviewsGhost -

I completely agree. City of Angels was the only one of any value.
MrKayDeeBee - 2/22/2024, 1:47 AM
I wish they would remake The Wraith instead
