Brandon Lee died on the set of the original The Crow movie

 

A remake of the 1994 hit The Crow will be the first film to be made at the new Pinewood Studios in Wales.

The announcement came as First Minister Carwyn Jones visited the site near Cardiff which has undergone a multimillion-pound transformation.

The studio's 70,000 square feet of production space will be used to shoot the reboot of the 1994 horror film which starred Brandon Lee, Bruce Lee's son.

The First Minister said: "The creative industries are flourishing in Wales and the opening of Pinewood Studio Wales follows on from several successful productions which have been filmed in Wales recently.

"It is excellent news and an important step in the ongoing growth of our creative Industries sector.

"The fact Pinewood has chosen to open a facility in Wales and so many production companies are filming here is testament to our beautiful landscape, vibrant cities, wonderful historical assets, our highly skilled and dedicated workforce, and the flexible support on offer from the Welsh Government.

"These combine to make our nation an excellent place to produce high quality film and television."

The Crow, based on the comic book franchise, tells the story of a rock musician who returns from the dead after he and his fiancee are murdered.

It was the last film Lee starred in after he was accidentally killed on set when a defective blank was fired at him.

The Crow was released posthumously after a stunt double and special effects were used to complete it.

Pinewood Studios Wales said filming is due to begin "shortly". It is not known who will play the lead role.
