The Howling: Reborn Official

A bit of official confirmation to start off your Thanksgiving week. We first told you of this flick during all that AFM madness, but today — The Howling: Reborn (original story here) has been made official!

Variety reports that indie producers Joel Kastelberg and Moonstone Entertainment’s Etchie Stroh are re-launching the werewolf franchise as The Howling: Reborn. Former studio marketing exec Joe Nimziki, who worked at New Line, MGM and Sony, will make his feature directorial debut from his own script.

Shooting is slated to begin in February for a targeted October release. I know …. you’re friggin’ stoked right?

    Technically speaking, this is not a remake but a reboot which springs from events and characters of the first film. I cannot tell you much about the film because it’s only about to go into production but I will say that this is the best script of any films since the original IMHO. I believe a lot of the naysayers will be very surprised.

    So let me see if I get this straight: this is a remake of the Howling, but since one of the sequels was basically a different interpretation of the book, this will actually be the third time The Howling has been made? Jesus. Is this supposed to follow the book or is it straight remake?

    I know its not PD, but I do kind of want to see The Howling II: Your Sister is a Sandy Werewolf.

    And how the hell does anyone expect to make “From a Buick 8,” into a movie?

    I saw the original many years ago and really enjoyed it. I don’t know anything about this remake but I will probably see it as a tribute to The Howling. In the meantime, I will check out as many reviews as I can. casino en ligne

    Not only is The Howling one of my favorite films (and books), but I’m not ashamed to admit I like most of the sequels as well.

    Howling II is some of the sleaziest fun you could ever have. The Marsupials is a clever slice of Aussie horror that never got its due. Part IV isn’t terribly good, but it’s got some cool FX in the last fifteen minutes. The fifth film has a great European location and some good character actors (Philip Davis rules) to carry through the lack of FX while The Freaks is a fun vampire vs. werewolf flick.

    Of course, New Moon Rising is staggeringly awful, but you’ve got to see it. Once.

    I was excited about The Howling Reborn until I heard that it might have more to do with Twilight than the Howling. That’s a shame.
