Strange Happenings on the Wolfman Set

Hmmmm!I wasn’t too sure about running this, but the following “set report” that was forwarded to STYD does make for an interesting read for those of us following Benicio del Toro’s Wolfman remake.

What follows reads more like a bit of gossip from a site called PopBitch. Enjoy, or just skip it and see the real news out there (““>First Look Behind New Wolfman!” – March 2008).

I was walking the dog in the Bourne Woods, Farnham, which is, as every fool knows, the Los Angeles of England. Last week was the new Harry Potter – sixty crew and three weeks rigging for a four hour shoot, and this week they’re prepping for The Wolfman, which requires forty caravans, a hundred and twenty first unit crew and the construction of two ginormous ‘gypsy camps’. The hot word on the street is that Benicio Del Toro is, in the words of a straight, male location manager ‘so cool, I’d fuck him myself’; Emily Blunt is ‘lovely, not quite as attractive as one might think but sexier’; and Anthony Hopkins ‘just doesn’t speak’. They arrive next Thursday Oh, and the director who shouted at my dog has been sacked (perhaps for some other reason) and they now have the estimable Joe Johnston (Honey I Shrunk The Kids, Jurassic Park III) turning their $85m budget into cunt soup.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

    All of a sudden, I’m thinking of llamas…and m00se bites…hmmmmm…

  • Kryten Syxx

    The line “the director who shouted at my dog has been sacked” alone made me want to put this up as news.

  • Gus Bjork

    They should have a Craft Service Commentary on all dvds.

    I would watch.

  • Terminal

    So, are we to expect an interview with the Crafts service people?

    “Anthony Hopkins had a bologna sandwich and two bags of chips. The people behind the “Wolf Man” movie are living it up!”

  • Uncle Creepy

    I’m guessing that the gist of it is that this guy lives around where the movie is being filmed and he was just posting about how immense the production is.

    That and delicious cunt soup!

  • Terminal

    WTF is this supposed to be about, again? Is this tabloid junk or actual news? If so, am I the only one who didn’t understand that stupid rant?

  • Uncle Creepy

    I don’t know, but he had me at “cunt soup”!

  • Chainsaw

    Was that even English?
