Bill Skarsgard to Play Eric Draven aka The Crow in Reboot Film


There is a reboot of The Crow in the works, which has been a news headline many times over the last few years, but this one may be different. According to Deadline, Bill Skarsgard, who played Pennywise the Clown in the It films, has been cast to play the Eric Draven role with Rupert Sanders on board to direct based on a script by Zach Baylin.




The Crow is a revenge thriller that started off as a comic series/graphic novel by writer/artist James O’Barr and was famously adapted in 1994 with Brandon Lee as the star who was tragically killed during filming. The film became a cult classic and spawned two sequels.


Director Sanders spoke about the upcoming project: “The Crow is beautiful, dark, poetic and sometimes disturbing. It is a story of love, loss, grief and revenge. It is a great honor to revisit James O’Barr’s iconic comic and reimagine The Crow as a foreboding voice of today.”
