Given that "The Crow" is being remade with Bill Skarsgård, it's expected that there will be some modifications to distinguish it from the iconic original. However, the original film holds a special place in the hearts of many fans, particularly due to the tragic circumstances surrounding Brandon Lee's death. Director Rupert Sanders has hinted that the new film pays tribute to Brandon Lee, implying that his influence is palpable in the remake.

Obviously, it was a terrible tragedy, and it’s definitely something that we’ve always had in mind through the making of the film,” Sanders explained, per Vanity Fair. “Brandon was an original voice and I think he will always be synonymous with The Crow and I hope he’s proud of what we’ve done and how we’ve brought the story back again. His soul is very much alive in this film. There’s a real fragility and beauty to his version of the Crow, and I think Bill feels like he is a successor to that.

Regarding Eric's updated appearance, Sanders elaborated, "I think the beauty of Bill is that he has a disturbing beauty, and as he transforms through his loss he becomes this thing that even he can’t control. That look was me in the ’90s when we were squat-raving in London, like Post Malone and Lil Peep. I hope people who are 19 today look at him and go, ‘That guy is us.’"


"The Crow" is scheduled to debut in theaters on June 7, 2024.
