BOREANAZ TALKS CROW
FANGORIA caught up with ANGEL's David Boreanaz over the weekend and got the lowdown on his upcoming role in CROW: WICKED PRAYER. 'It just came to fruition about two months ago,' Boreanaz says. 'I read the script and I loved it. I loved the dialogue, the pace and the rhythm of it.
'It's called WICKED PRAYER because it's a wicked script,' the actor says of the screenplay by director Lance [SIX STRING SAMURAI] Mungia and longtime CROW producer Jeff Most. 'Dimension thinks it's the best script that's ever been written as far as the CROW series goes. It takes place pretty much in a small Arizona mining town, which sets it apart from the other ones. Ed Furlong is going to play the Crow, which I think is an interesting choice, and I'm real excited to see him play it. My father was killed, so there's a lot about revenge in the story.'
After doing so much ass-kicking on four seasons (thus far) of ANGEL, CROW: WICKED PRAYER will finally see Boreanaz take those skills to the big screen. 'There are going to be a lot of fights,' the actor promises. 'The coordinator from DAREDEVIL [David Lea] is doing it. I don't start training with him until Saturday, but I've been training since January?not necessarily just for this role?but to get back in shape for something that would be coming for me on for hiatus. I work out every day, I do two workouts a day, I play ice hockey once a week, so there's a lot of stuff. I'm pretty tired come Saturday.'
As for whether he feels that Dimension is trying to jumpstart the franchise back into theaters after the direct-to-video trip of CROW: SALVATION, the actor is philosophical. 'I don't know,' admits Boreanaz. 'My job is to play the character, and I'm not involved in anything else. I see a script that's story-driven and I'm motivated by the choices of the other people involved. To be able to work with a legend like Dennis Hopper is such a cool experience that I jumped all over it.'
CROW: WICKED PRAYER starts shooting this June in Utah, and co-stars Tara Reid.
