Wolf Man director is...

Joe Johnston! At first glance, I don't even know who Johnston is, but I'm STOKED he's the new director of THE WOLF MAN, mainly because he's not Brett Ratner! Holy hell, that would have sucked if Ratner got the gig...

Anyway, Johnston was the dude who brought us the craptacular JURASSIC PARK 3, so maybe he's not any better than Ratner... then again, he also tackled HIDALGO, OCTOBER SKY, and JUMANJI (just to name a few), so it's possible he'll be able to pull a nice little feature out of this one.

To much relief of fans, Johnston ends the endless search for a new director, a search that seemed to to go on forever, and has now come full circle. Good shite!

It all started when original WOLF MAN director Mark Romanek dropped out of the $100M flick over creative differences, and as the film's set to be released next February 13th, Universal needed to kick it in high gear so the filming schedule stays on course and that release date could be obtainable.

THE WOLF MAN, starring Benecio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, and Emily Blunt hits theaters everywhere Friday, February 13th, 2009.
