Everything was going so well for Universal’s big budget remake of The Wolfman. After a promising trailer and its receipt of the much coveted R rating, we were starting to get a good vibe … until today when reports of two different cuts being readied surfaced. Fortunately that rumor has been dubunked.
First The Playlist reported that there were two versions of The Wolfman currently being prepped in the editing room, one by the film’s director, Joe Johnston, and other being forged by Universal’s Production President, Donna Langely.
Fortunately, though, Devin over at Chud got on the phone with Scott Stuber, BMOC at Universal and producer of the film, and he set the record pretty straight [by saying]: “The movie’s been done for a while. We finished the cut, and obviously we are now mixing and scoring and putting in our final effects right now, but the movie’s been finished. The concept of having two competing cuts and the studio having their own editing room and all that [is] simply not true.”
Whew! February 12, 2010, can’t get here soon enough so we can finally see what has the potential to be one of the coolest possible genre flicks of the year.
