Even though MTV’s movie news seems as obsessed with Twilight as your average 12-year-old girl in the last few months, now and then they do manage to break out and talk to people about real movies, like the Joe Johnston-helmed “>Wolfman redux.
Producer/star Benicio del Toro chatted up the film with MTV’s Movie Blog recently, giving some insight in the differences between the 1941 original and this reimagining, mainly revolving around the character played by Sir Anthony Hopkins; ”Anthony Hopkins’ role was [originally] played by Claude Rains and the relationship between Rains and Lon Chaney Jr was a good father and son [relationship].” he explained, ”In [our version], its definitely fractured, I’m like the prodigal son, I’ve been gone, he sent me away when I was a child and I haven’t seen him in twenty six years and I can home again to visit my brother who’s missing, but I [also play an] actor too which is also different.”
We’ve got almost a year to wait till we finally see The Wolfman, which is more than enough time for a sequel to be planned, no? When del Toro asked if there would be other classic monsters featured in the film, his response hinted that might actually happen; “No, there’s no other monsters coming into play, that’s maybe down the line.”
Personally I just want to see this Wolfman before I start worrying about more! Keep it here for updates, or just random news stories to remind you the film is out there for the next few months!
