Somewhere along the way we’ve lost track of how many movies there are in The Howling franchise. Six maybe? Yes. Six. True, most of them were of questionable quality and none ever came close to being as good as the original, but they do hold a special place in the hearts of some fans. Still, we’re pretty excited to have the franchise coming back, and the first plot details of the upcoming The Howling Reborn have come to light.
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.
Check out the first ever details below courtesy of Bloody Disgusting, and while we’re revisiting all this cool Howling stuff, let’s take a moment to dig on how fuckin’ badass the transformation was in the original film!
“A teenager graduating from high school finally gets the girl he’s been pining over for years, but unfortunately for him once he’s landed the love of his life, he discovers that he’s cursed and will transform into a werewolf. Even worse, not only does he have his own internal conflict to contend with, he must also battle an entire pack of werewolves who are hellbent on killing both him and his new girlfriend.”
