Though it’s not a lot of info, whenever someone is discussing the upcoming Wolf Man adaptation, my ears perk up and I have to make sure you guys hear about it, too.
Benicio del Toro, star and executive producer on the remake, chatted briefly with MTV’s Movie Blog about the role of Larry Talbot and how they’re approaching the redux; “We’re trying to go back to the original. There’s something very nostalgic about it for me. I loved all those monsters when I was a kid,” he told them. Mark Romanek is directing.
No word on if Sir Anthony Hopkins has officially signed on for the role of Talbot’s well-to-do father as has been rumored, as apparently nothing’s been signed yet. Thought it would be a boon for the remake in terms of name recognition, personally I think the more unknown actors, the better so the focus can be on characters.
Like I said, I make sure to pay attention whenever the film is mentioned so look for more as we move closer to its shoot date!
