Could (Should) The Crow Be PG-13?
A brand-new variation would need an ensemble cast of bad guys who might record the edgy ambiance accomplished so well in the 1994 movie. Existing character actors who may fit the costs consist of Richard Brake, Mads Mikkelsen, Vincent Cassel, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Cheon So Jin.
