Jessica Brown Findlay Joins THE CROW Remake As 'Shelly'

Now that Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) has been confirmed to star in the upcoming remake of The Crow as Eric Draven, he's going to need a Shelly to return from the dead to avenge, and that'll be Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay.


During a Q&A panel a the Lexington Comic and Toy Convention, The Crow creator James O’Barr not only confirmed that Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire, American Hustle, Shrooms) would don the black and white face-paint as Eric Draven in Corin Hardy's remake, but that he'd be joined by Jessica Brown Findlay (A Winter's Tale, The Riot Club, Downton Abbey) as his doomed fiancée, Shelly Webster. This character was played by Sofia Shinas in the original film, and it's her brutal rape and murder that brings Draven back from the dead to exact his bloody revenge.

O'Barr also revealed a few more interesting details: the bulk of the cast will be made up of of British actors; in the film the crow will actually speak to Eric as he does in the comics; and if there's a sequel, it will feature a female lead. Check out the video below.
