Lionsgate’s Plans For ‘The Crow’ Reboot
The 2024 reboot is being directed by Rupert Sanders. Meanwhile, Lionsgate’s Executive Vice President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions, Charlotte Koh said, “We appreciate what the Crow character and original movie mean to legions of fans and believe this new film will offer audiences an authentic and visceral reinterpretation of its emotional power and mythology.”
She continued to say, “To work with a creative team led by Rupert’s unparalleled visual style and storytelling and with a producing team who have made some of the most popular and impactful films of the last several decades is a true privilege.”
The original movie was a superhit smash at the box office which later became a household name. It will be hard for Bill Skarsgård to step into the intimidating shoes of Brandon Lee as the titular lead. Let’s see if the reboot can keep up with the original.
