has signed on to star in Dimension Films' latest installment of
"The Crow" franchise for the Edward R. Pressman Film Corp. The
project will begin shooting at the end of this year. The Crow:
Lazarus will be the fourth in the series of movies. DMX has signed
a multi-picture deal for the series. "We are thrilled that DMX
will be taking on the role of Lazarus," Pressman said. "His presence
on screen is truly magnetic, and he is sure to broaden and deepen
the audience for the franchise." The movie is about a Rap artist
who leaves the music scene for a woman. He is shot and killed
in a drive-by, and comes back from beyond to avenge his murder.
DMX is currently wrapping up Exit Wounds, in which he stars opposite
of Steven Seagal.
