Long in development, a new iteration of The Crow is finally underway with director Corin Hardy helming, and Jack Huston and Jessica Brown Findlay set to star as the doomed lovers whose deaths the former will return from the grave to avenge. Who will be responsible for their cruel fate? In Alex Proyas’ 1994 favorite Michael Wincott essayed big bad, Top Dollar, with a gravely-voiced menace. In Hardy’s take, nothing in this town happens without Andrea Riseborough’s say so.
Deadline reports Riseborough (pictured top in Oblivion) will essay Top Dollar in the new The Crow, heading up the mob that attacks Eric Draven and his fiancee Shelly Webster. Following the encouraging hire of Hardy (his The Hallow is a fantastic creature feature), Riseborough, terrific in the likes of Shadow Dancer and Brighton Rock, is a seeming second boon for the film.
