THE CROW Reboot Flies Again With IT Star Bill Skarsgård As Eric Draven; Rupert Sanders To Direct

After spending years in development hell and going through countless reboot attempts, a new take on The Crow is taking flight, with It star Bill Skarsgård in line to play the lead role of Eric Draven.

We've heard this before (several times), but a reboot of The Crow is now in development, and has actually been in pre-production for quite a while. Cameras are scheduled to roll in June.

THR reports that It actor Bill Skarsgård will take on the lead role of Eric Draven, with Snow White and the Huntsman and Ghost in the Shell director Rupert Sanders behind the camera. Edward R. Pressman and Malcolm Gray will co-produce.

James O’Barr's iconic comic series 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.

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 should be left alone.

What do you guys make of this news? Do you think a take on The Crow with this creative team involved has potential?
