The 31-year-old actor, best known for playing Pennywise the Clown in the It movies, will star as Eric Draven in the movie, which is going to be directed by Rupert Sanders.

FKA twigs will also star in the movie.

THR reports that The Crow tells “the dark tale of a man and his fiancée that are assaulted and killed by a gang after the duo’s car breaks down. The man is resurrected by a crow and exacts vengeance on those who took his life and the life of his love.”

The Crow is beautiful, dark, poetic and sometimes disturbing,” Rupert said. “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.”

The screenplay for the reboot was written by Zach Baylin, who was nominated for an Oscar for writing the script for King Richard.

The Crow will begin filming in June 2022 on a $50 million budget.
