FKA Twigs has something to crow about…
The 34-year-old part-Spanish British singer and dancer who is making inroads into acting, will co-star in the reboot and reimagining of The Crow, the supernatural revenge thriller being directed by Rupert Sanders.
Crow was an indie comic written and drawn by James O’Barr in the late 1980s that told the dark tale of a man and his fiancee who are assaulted and killed by a gang after the couple’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.
Twigs is playing the girlfriend/fiancée. The role was not significant in the original movie, but sources say that in this reimagining, the part has been reconceived into a co-lead.
It’s unclear if the character never quite dies, perhaps returns in some supernatural form, or may even be a representation of the crow itself.
Crow is due to begin shooting in June with production to take place in Prague and Munich.
Producing are Victor Hadida, Molly Hassell, John Jencks and Edward R. Pressman. Dan Farah is an exec producer on the project.
Twigs earlier this year released a mixtape album titled Caprisongs and had a song on The King’s Man soundtrack.
