It’s being reported by Dread Central that Jack Huston, who plays Richard Harrow on Boardwalk Empire, has been officially cast as the lead in the upcoming remake of The Crow.

The site spoke with creator James O’Barr, who stated that Huston has, “…definitely been cast,” and that he was, “…really happy with that choice.”

The film is a remake of the 1994 Alex Proyas-directed action thriller, which starred Brandon Lee in his final role. Directed by Corin Hardy and written by Cliff Dorfman, the film will begin shooting in the next several months.

In a Q&A panel a the Lexington Comic and Toy Convention, The Crow creator James O’Barr opened up about several new details for the upcoming remake, which will be filming later this year.

O’Barr confirmed that the role of Shelly, Eric Draven’s fiancée who was brutally murdered the night before their wedding, will be played by Jessica Brown Findlay. Findlay, who many might know from the TV series Downton Abbey. Additionally, he states that the bulk of the cast will be comprised of British actors.

He also states that the crow in the film will actually speak to Eric, just like in the comics, adding that this might be done by way of stop-motion.

O’Barr raises hopes that the film will be successful as that will allow it to become a new franchise, one that will see different characters over different time periods. He comments that a sequel to the film would see a female lead.
