Wolfman Remake Moved to November

The WolfmanLooks like we’re going to be waiting a little longer than expected to catch “>The Wolfman remake as Universal announced today that the movie’s release date has been bumped to next November.

The official date is now November 9, 2009 and personally I hope they use this time wisely. IE: work on an actual transformation instead of a CGI cartoon! C’mon guys! You got one of the best in the biz doing your wolf effects in Rick Baker! Put him to good use!

Pretty please? We’ll be your best friend! Sigh.

  1. I am so tired of being strung along by Universal. I have been getting more and more psyched about this movie since it’s announcement, and now it gets delayed AGAIN. Ugh. The world is so overdo for another great werewolf film. I mean sure we’ve gotten Dog Soldiers and Ginger Snaps in this decade, but before that we have to go all the way back to 1981 with The Howling and AAWIL. Why must Hollywood shortchange the lycanthropes?

    • I did a thread about this on the forums. Between Blood and Chocolate getting raped from its rather decent source material and turned into Underworld-Lite, Skinwalkers getting screwed over with severe studio interference and un-needed script rewrites (such as that bullshit ending and the decision to not have a physical transformation scene), and Trick ‘R Treat (which features werewolves in one bit) getting absolutely fucked by Warner Brothers for no apparent reason, it does honestly feel like Hollywood has some a grudge against werewolf movies that don’t have vampires in them, which is unfortunate since I’ve always found werewolves more interesting than vampires.

      • Agreed on all counts. Werewolves rule. Vampires have too much of a tendency to be emo-fied pussies for my liking. Violent asshole vampires (Near Dark) or monster vamps (From Dusk Till Dawn) are what bloodsuckers were meant to be, not whiny little bitches.

        Typical movie vampire: “I have supernatural powers ,can get any woman I want, and will live forever. Life sucks.”

        P.S. I (like just about everybody here) desperately want to watch Trick ‘R Treat.

        • Yeah, or 30 Days of Night. Love that film. But Near Dark is still my favorite vampire film ever. And of course the typical vampires have to hate life. It’s so the teenage girls feel obligated to see the movie and want to cuddle up to them. -_-

          This is why with werewolves I like comics. Between Ben Templesmith’s Welcome to Hoxford, and then Steve Niles’ and Jeff Frank’s Savage (werewolves vs were-bigfoot type monsters, can’t go wrong there), and Josh Medors’ Willow Creek, which is on hold due to Josh Medors’ cancer (I wish him the best of luck in recovering), it’s nice that werewolves are making a comeback in some form of entertainment.

          P.S. Trick ‘R Treat is going to go down in history as one of the most infamous films ever soley because of all the hype about it and yet the studio refuses to do anything with it. I’ve heard everything from the studio head hating it to a grudge stemming from Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns to the kid-killings. Who really knows at this point. I don’t even care if it just gets released on Fear-Net or a torrent online, so long as it comes out.
