Well, this is unexpected! The trailer for The Howling: Reborn has quietly made its way online, and we have every pixel of it here for you curiosity seekers out there! Dig it and tell us what you think!
From the Press Release: It’s official! The Howling is reborn. One of the most admired horror franchises in screen history is about to run wild again, and this time it aims is to grab an even wider audience. Anchor Bay Films is proud to announce that it has acquired all rights for English speaking territories to the eagerly anticipated The Howling: Reborn, an all-new, totally original chapter written and directed by Joe Nimziki.
The legend of The Howling began more than 30 years ago, with the publication of Gary Brandner’s best-selling novel and the subsequent film adaptation written by Academy Award® nominated John Sayles (Lone Star, Spiderwick Chronicles) and directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins, InnerSpace), the success of which ushered in a new screen era of werewolves. Before there was “Team Jacob,” there was Karen White, and Nimziki’s reboot of The Howling saga is being described in industry circles as “Twilight with bite” with the deft mix of romance and action that audiences worldwide are craving.
“Genre films have always been special at Anchor Bay,” said Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions. “Given our success with many of the classic franchises and their honored remakes, The Howling: Reborn is the perfect addition to our family.”
“It is Joe Nimziki’s drive, creative vision and execution that has taken this franchise to the next level,” commented Etchie Stroh, CEO of Moonstone Entertainment. “Joe, along with [producer] Joel [Kastelberg], has worked very hard to make sure the film reaches an even wider demographic while preserving the original storyline.”
Wow, do we miss Eddie Quist. Sigh.
