Wolf Man shifts again

Jul. 28, 2009by: Dave Davis

Let's say you're a guy who suffers with a curse, and every full moon you uncontrollably transform into a hairy, murderous beast. How much worse could it get?

If they're trying to make a movie about you, it could get a lot worse.

First, director Mark Romanek (ONE HOUR PHOTO) abruptly left THE WOLF MAN shortly before filming, and was replaced by FX guy Joe Johnston (JUMANJI, JURASSIC PARK III). The Universal remake shot in early-mid 2008, and has since been kicked all over the release schedule like an unwanted dog-man.

After lurching from a late 2008 release to February, then April, then November of this year, the film is now (tentatively?) scheduled to be let off the leash on Feb. 12, 2010.

The Victorian-era terror, an update of the classic monster, stars Benicio del Toro as the afflicted lycanthrope (courtesy of Oscar-winning FX guru Rick Baker, of AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON fame). The remake also stars divine Brit Emily Blunt, Hugo Weaving and Sir Anthony Hopkins.

Extra Tidbit: The latest rumored dilemma is whether to have the Wolf Man prowl on all fours or bipedal.

WTF!

I wish they would just release the damn thing. I've been waiting forever. I just hope the reason for the push is for the good. This movie better kick ass and then some.

These studios and their release dates rarely make sense anymore. This is a kick in the ass for those interested.

If they keep this up , we may end up with another All the Boys love Mandy Lane episode, where everyone saw it on DVD before the shit even hit theaters

If you'd have asked me I would probably have guessed this got a quiet DVD release six months ago.

This definitely does not bode well for the film. Going from one director to another, and all the constant delays, it's troubling evidence of the production hell this movie is going through.

So freakin' lame. I've been waiting forever for this movie! The ONLY two horror movies I give a damn about go through this distribution hell (this and Trick 'r Treat).
