Empire Movie News ran an interview today with producer Scott Stuber to start dishing the dirt on what fans can expect form this Joe (Jurassic Park III) Johnston directed flick.
Having Rick Baker back creating a wolf man is no doubt a real selling point, but if you’re like me, the main thing on your mind is physical transformation or lame CGI? Thankfully Stuber didn’t beat around the bush …
“We really want to stick to the physical stuff. So much of what we’re trying to accomplish is that when Benicio is the wolf, you really know it’s Benicio Del Toro and you have the eyes and the emotion of what he is. That way you don’t disassociate your emotion and you realise that the person, Lawrence Talbot, who you’ve got to know in the daytime is still Lawrence Talbot at night. That way you’re empathetic towards him, you’re angry towards him, you feel for him. You wouldn’t get that with a completely CG creature who you disassociate from Benicio Del Toro. There will inevitably be some CG work to help with some of the transformation, but it’s a Rick Baker-centric film and that’s what we wanted from the get-go.”
