Andrea Riseborough To Play Villain Top Dollar In ‘The Crow’

Andrea Riseborough To Play Villain Top Dollar In 'The Crow'

After a stint in development hell, “The Crow” remake is now flying, for better or worse. Jack Huston is locked down in the lead role, and the movie’s big baddie has been found, and it’s being given an interesting gender switch.

Deadline reports that Andrea Riseborough is in talks to play Top Dollar. A dude in the comics, and played by Michael Wincott in the 1994 movie, the character is the gang boss who murders Eric Draven and his girlfriend. When Draven returns in full goth as The Crow, he sets his sights on Top Dollar seeking justice and revenge. And I have to say, as disinterested in this movie as I am, the little twist on the villain is nifty.

Corin Hardy (“The Woods“) is directing the film which will land in cinemas probably next year sometime. Thoughts? Does this news make you slightly more optimistic? Hit up the comments section and let us know.
