The long-awaited remake of The Crow has finally completed filming.
Other film remakes have stuck in development hell throughout the years, but none as well-known as 1994's The Crow. There have been several false starts and delays in getting the reboot off the ground throughout that period. So when it was announced earlier this year that Rupert Sanders, director of Ghost in the Shell 2016 and Foundation, would be helming a remake starring It's Bill Skarsgard, it felt like the seventh verse, same as the verse.
According to The Prague Reporter, filming for The Crow began in the Czech capital of Prague in July and wrapped up on September 30. The city's Rudolfinum music hall is the location for one of the film's "biggest" scene pieces, which required the participation of hundreds of extras dressed to the nines. Also, scenes were shot at the Penzing Studios in Munich for virtual production.
This seems like a relatively speedy turnaround in the grand scheme, but given how long the picture has been in the works, it's not precisely unwanted. After Blade filmmaker Stephen Norrington said in 2008 that he wanted to create and direct a remake of the superhero picture, Hollywood has been attempting to get this off the ground ever since. Jason Momoa, Bradley Cooper, James McAvoy, and Luke Evans are just some of the stars that have been linked to the project in various capacities over the last several years (not in that order). Throughout the film's production, original Crow director Alex Proyas has voiced opposition to a remake, claiming that doing so would be a waste of Lee's last acting performance. It's inevitable that when we finally receive an official first look at The Crow, and when it finally comes out, it will inspire a broad spectrum of responses from the general population. via - collider
