American Werewolf in London Remake Happening with Original Director's Son?

18 August 2016 10:27 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Is infamous writer/director Max Landis about to remake one of his dad's all-time classics? That's what the prodigal son is teasing on Twitter. John Landis wrote and directed An American Werewolf in London way back in 1981, and it succeeded as one of the first horror comedies of that era. Now, it sounds like the movie might get resurrected. But it will be staying in the family.

An American Werewolf in London is considered one of the best werewolf movies of all-time, and even won Rick Baker a Best Make-Up Oscar. It should come as no surprise that in our current cinematic state of affairs that someone would eventually set out to remake or reboot the franchise. What makes this one a bit more interesting than the typical remake is that the script is coming from the original director's son.

Max Landis has a pretty solid resume, delivering the screenplay for the critically praised Chronicle. »

Silver Scream Fest: American Werewolf Reunion

6 March 2016 11:38 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

It’s been 35 years since a certain werewolf terrorized London, and to celebrate that anniversary, we gathered director John Landis, special effects guru Rick Baker, and actor David Naughton to discuss the production of An American Werewolf In London with Maniac Cop’s William Lustig moderating.

Screening the film for old fans and newbies gave the panel a rush of energy, and the three men laughed heartily at the remembrances. Landis recalled that he had been working on a film called Kelly’S Heroes when he saw some gypsies burying a man covered in rosaries and garlic and incense — and they were burying him feet first! — all to keep the corpse from coming back from the dead. He found it fascinating, and wondered how these superstitions could be so strong two months after we’d gone to the moon.

So he wrote the script for over a decade before the film finally went into production. »

8 Horror Films That Hollywood Should Remake Soon

24 February 2016 8:11 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Should any film ever be remade? Well, Hollywood certainly thinks so, and there seems to be an unending supply of directors who think they can improve on what’s gone before. Whatever the final result, and of course every filmmaker sets out to make the best film they can, the new production will always be subjected to the harshest scrutiny when compared with an often loved original. Clearly unfazed by any potential negativity, studio execs seem convinced that the most suitable target for remakes is the good old horror flick.

Recently, we’ve had updated versions of well-known films that have lacked any real quality, from the disappointing (Carrie) to the downright awful (Halloween), but nevertheless this trend shows few signs of letting up.
