Universal Pictures is getting into the historical horror business with THE WOLF'S HOUR, based on Robert McCammon's 1989 novel. The studio has set FAST & FURIOUS screenwriter Chris Morgan to produce, while brothers Bradley and Kevin Marcus write the script. (Actually, they already wrote it, way back when they first acquired the book over 20 years ago.)

The tale provides a mix of horror and action:

McCammon's hero is Michael Gallatin, embattled inhabitant of two different worlds. Born into the Russian aristocracy, but 'changed' and raised by a pack of werewolves, Michael's journey takes him from the wild regions of his native Russia to the battle-scarred landscapes of a world at war. Offering his unique talents to the Allied cause, Michael becomes a sort of secret weapon aimed at the destruction of Hitler and his 'Thousand Year Reich.' His adventures take him from the deserts of North Africa to the German-occupied countries of Western Europe. There, with the aid of a vivid assortment of friends, comrades, and lovers, he uncovers a horrific conspiracy known as 'Iron Fist,' which threatens to disrupt the Allies' long-planned invasion of Europe and to alter the very outcome of the war.

Man, imagine if we had only had werewolves at our disposal during WWII… I'll take those over Nazi zombies any day of the week.

No word yet on how fast this might be moving, but we'll keep you informed.

This is an excellent novel and I always envisioned this on the big screen. Just imagine watching the exploits of a hero that is a combination of Indiana Jones, James Bond and the Wolfman. It will be great to watch Michael Gallatin sink his teeth into a few dozen nazis. Universal made a great choice by acquiring the rights to this film!

I'm looking forward to this. I'm a huge fan of werewolves. I want to read the book. Amazon has the kindle addition for like 7 bucks.
