Character Details For ‘The Crow’ Reboot Reveal A Lot Of Changes

The cult classic The Crow has die hard fans, with some having begged for a reboot for years, while others have dubbed it untouchable due to Brandon Lee’s performance. With this newest version finally coming out, we’re seeing some indications that it is actually closer to the source material than the 1994 film that everyone has fallen in love with. We’ve gotten a better understanding of just how different it will be from the casting calls that have recently surfaced. Jason Momoa has been asking for years to play the lead role, and he finally got his wish.

However, there are other character details that are maybe a little more than surprising. The character breakdown is as follows:

[T-BIRD]
30, strong and wiry with the cold eyes of a wolf and an endless hunger where his heart should be. Lacking in conscience, covered in prison ink. Has taken over the old Hotel Reno on the outskirts of town where he rolls with Top Dollar and his notorious gang. Tonight he becomes a made man, but deep down he knows he wants it all…

[TOP DOLLAR]
20s – 30s, a lean, reptilian woman who came of age amidst lust and cruelty and has survived by embracing both. She possesses an almost psychic instinct for seeking out a lie, her withering gaze something of a Medusa… T-Bird’s girl and co-manager of Hotel Reno, where she has been using her charm to draw in susceptible girls…

[SHELLY]
28 – 35, Eric’s one true love. A dancer with effortless talent.. Her undeniable beauty is matched only by her passion to teach dance to the inner city girls at her home studio. Shelly hopes to create peace in the community through teaching children, until she is brutally murdered by T-Bird and Top Dollar’s gang, setting off a violent chain of events as Eric seeks to avenge her death..

[DETECTIVE ALBRECHT]
40s – 50s, female. A world-weary soul in a rumpled suit. Haunted by the unsolved murders of Eric and Shelly. Dealing with marital issues and fighting against an ever-increasing wave of crime and corruption in the city. The heart of a warrior, Albrecht is determined to prevail against all odds…

[RATSO]
20s, bad face, bad skin, bad teeth. A loser of life’s lottery and he knows it. Wannabe T-Bird. Nurses a hatred of all things beautiful and proud, TinTin is a special treasure to him, a big man he can look down on. Rolls with T-Bird’s gang and runs his numbers, but dreams of being #1…

[FUN BOY]
20s – 30s, his bloodstream a seething cocktail of illegal pharmacology. His eyes fixed in the stare of a man seeing visions. Fun Boy runs T-Bird’s drug kitchens at the Hotel Reno. He wears a long leather trench coat sporting a happy-skull-face…

[TIN TIN]
30s, a hulking monster of a man, with unstoppable fists. T-Bird’s undefeatable champion in the ring. Mean and tough. Accustomed to being shunned, grateful for the society of savages who have taken him in (T-Bird, Top Dollar, Ratso, Fun Boy, Gideon)…

As you can see, they have made more than a few changes. We knew Top Dollar would be portrayed by a woman, as it was announced back in 2015 that Andrea Riseborough would be playing the character, but we’re not certain if that’s still the case.

We’ll be sure to keep you posted with any updates on the movie, as it’s currently scheduled to go into production this Summer.
