Most everyone knows this, but if you’re a cultural clunk then take note that 2010’s The Wolfman sucked hairy ass (no pun intended). A glossy, good-looking production that never fully delivered on its promise of resurrecting one of the great movie monsters for a modern audience. Which is why tt’s being taken out back and shot with a silver bullet, as it’s been revealed that the remake will be getting the reboot treatment. Yea, you heard the right. A reboot of a remake. Hollywood hootenanny at it’s finest.
The reworked script for Universal, written by Michael Tabb, has become a stand-alone feature simply titled Werewolf. Originally leaked by Moviehole this new movie will be closer to the original 1941 George Waggner film rather than the Joe Johnston directed slip-up . And just pray-tell will be directing this horror of horrors? Universal has stamped it’s approval on Louis Morneau. Who?
If the name Morneau doesn’t ring a bell thats because his previous credits include Joy Ride 2 : Dead Ahead, The Hitcher II : I’ve Been Waiting, Bats and Retroactive. Suffice to say, Universal is taking a big risk on this one. I’m certainly not getting my hopes up. You’ll find me frequently checking the $5.99 bin at Walmart.
