John Landis Whoa baby, the folks at Collider just posted a doozy of a rumor. According to their "inside source", the man who brought us AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON is now being considered to replace Mark Romanek as director of THE WOLF MAN. It's certainly a tushy-tingling prospect seeing an iconic 80s director back to lycanthropic form but the things he's done in recent years don't exactly inspire confidence. Either way, this is more good news than bad. It's John effing Landis we're talking about, after all. He'll at least try to bring some soul to the character. Not that it wouldn't be good to see The Rat's vision of The Wolf Man at a Playboy mansion orgy after barely escaping a nuclear reactor explosion but sometimes well-rounded character and story is a little better.

UPDATE!

Well, it's not Landis. Joe Johnston, forgiving JP3, is the more than capable man who's been given the job. With Rocketeer, Hildago and October Sky to his credit I think we outta give the man a chance.

It would a great thing if this turns out to be true. Landis did some solid work recently with his 2 Master of Horror eps, not to mention pretty much creating hardcore horror-comedy genre (and one of the few who's been financially successful with it unlike under-appreciated flicks like SLITHER) with AMERICAN WERWOLF IN LONDON, THRILLER and the little seen gem INNOCENT BLOOD. Let's not forget this is also the guy behind classics like BLUES BROTHERS, ANIMAL HOUSE, TRADING PLACES, INTO THE NIGHT to

Let's not forget this is also the guy behind classics like BLUES BROTHERS, ANIMAL HOUSE, TRADING PLACES, INTO THE NIGHT to name a few. He's had some misteps, but what filmmaker hasn't? Few have made even one flick with cult followings to this day, let alone a collection of 'em. I'd love to see him back in the game for real so here's to that. "See You Next Wed" (his fans know what that means).
