Louis Morneau tapped to direct Universal's Wolfman pseudo-reboot Werewolf

Jul. 7, 2011by: Alex DiVincenzo

As Eric told you last month, Universal are currently preparing a new werewolf flick, but the details were hazy. It was originally planned as a sequel to the ill-fated THE WOLFMAN, then it was going to be a new reboot of the original 1941 classic THE WOLF MAN. The script, written by Michael Tabb, has been reworked into an original, stand-alone picture, simply titled WEREWOLF.

Louis Morneau (above) has now been tapped to direct the film, according to Moviehole. Morneau's previous credits include BATS, THE HITCHER II: I'VE BEEN WAITING, JOY RIDE 2: DEAD AHEAD and RETROACTIVE. With a resume like that, one can assume that this one will be going direct to video (as was the original plan for the sequel), but nothing is confirmed.

Casting for the flick will begin soon. Filming is expected to begin in the fall for a 2012 release. We'll keep you updated.

Favorite Werewolf movie...

Dog Soldiers. Good acting, great dialog, effective action, and big-ass wolves.

After that it has to be American Werewolf in London.

Urgh! Why?!?!

OK lets not pretend Wolfman was great but it wasnt THAT bad and if they really want to reboot and do justice, go big and go theatrical. You'll make a hell of a lot more money than this shit. Straight to DVD sequels are what give genre a bad name. Why is it you could get a no budget movie and if done well it can look and feel awesome even on the big screen, but the minute these cheap ass cash in's come along they dont even seem to try? So frustrating.
