The Wolfman to Howl Again for Universal

The last time Universal tried rebooting The Wolfman, the film turned out to be more of a whimper than a howl. Still, you can’t keep a good ghoul down, and that’s not stopping the mighty studio from trying to reboot the franchise yet again. That’s right … again.

According to Bloody Disgusting Universal is looking for writers for what they’re calling a period piece reboot (again) of George Waggner’s classic 1941 film starring Lon Chaney, Jr. as The Wolf Man.

The only detail available at press time is that the film is supposed to start a fresh direct-to-disc franchise like what they’re doing with Death Race although their exact direction is still unconfirmed. Stay tuned for more as it comes.

    Maybe they’re just doing this because they think they can recycle some of the crappy f/x footage.

      Don’t you mean the “Crappy” oscar winning Effects footage. Heh.

      Still. I actually did like the remake a bit more than I should have so I’m sorta looking forward to this.

        The f/x were crappy. Both American Werewolf and The Howling had better werewolf f/x decades ago.

        Screw the academy. How many readers of this site really believe ‘The King’s Speech’ was the best movie of the year?

          Not me, than again I didn’t think any of the nominated films were the best movies of the year.

        • YandereSama

          Well if you think the effects were crappy, that’s your opinion man. It still won the oscar for them.

          You REALLY can’t argue with Vanvances final point!!

          I’m not gonna kill you. Your job will be to tell the rest of them that death is coming for them, tonight. Tell them Eric Draven sends his regards.
