Director Selected for The Wolfman RemakeGoon
Today Universal has decided on who will direct their remake to the classic film The Wolfman. That man is primarily known as a music video director but also wrote and directed One Hour Photo. He is Mark Romanek. Now I usually don't like Music Video directors but this man has already dabbled in film and successfully I might add.
The Wolfman Remake closely follow the period pedigree of the 1941 original, in which a man returns from the U.S. to his ancestral home in Victorian-era Great Britain, gets bitten by a werewolf and begins a hairy moonlight existence.
Benicio Del Toro has been attached to play Larry Talbot the lead for quite some time. Filming for the movie is expected to begin sometime this fall and serve as a tentpole release in 2008.
