A little while ago, it was revealed that rather than the originally planned straight to DVD sequel, The Wolfman (released in 2010, and directed by Captain America: The First Avenger's Joe Johnston) would instead be receiving the reboot treatment. Writer Michael Tabb has reworked the script for Universal into an original, stand-alone picture and Moviehole now exclusively report that the movie, set to be titled Werewolf, has found a director in the form of Louis Morneau. Casting is also expected to begin soon. Morneau’s previous credits include Joy Ride 2 : Dead Ahead, The Hitcher II : I’ve Been Waiting, Bats and Retroactive. Yeah...I'm guessing this is probably still going to heading straight to DVD then. Apparently, the tone of the movie will have more in common with the original 1941 George Waggner film rather than the critically panned effort from the 2009 remake. »
Early last month a report came out saying that the planned sequel to the disastrous The Wolf Man was being remolded and re-imagined as a separate entity possibly called Werewolf. The story also said that Universal was fast-tracking the project and actively looking for a director to helm the project. Now it seems that their search has ended. MovieHole has learned that filmmaker Louis Morneau has been hired to helm the new lycanthrope movie for the studio. If the name doesn't ring a bell, it's likely because you don't spend a lot of your time watching B-grade horror movies. Morneau's previous credits include direct-to-dvd sequels Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead and The Hitcher II : I.ve Been Waiting, as well as the Lou Diamond Phillips-starring thriller Bats and the Jim Belushi-starring time-travel movie Retroactive. The studio is planning to put the film into production this fall and »
It's being reported that Universal Pictures is going into development on a new Wolfman film called Werewolf, and it will in no way be associated with the previous Wolfman film, which as you all know was incredibly terrible. Instead of making a sequel to that film, the studio decided to pretty much start over from scratch and create an original film based on the classic monster, which isn't a bad idea. According to the source, this film will share a link to the original George Waggner film from 1941.
The studio has also hired director Louis Morneau to take on the horror film project. Morneau is credited for making strait to DVD horror films such as Joy Ride 2 : Dead Ahead, The Hitcher II : I’ve Been Waiting, Bats with Lou Diamond Phillips, and Retroactive with Jim Belushi. I haven't seen any of these films so I don't know if »
Universal showed how much they believe believe in their recently relaunched The Wolfman franchise by developing a direct-to-disc sequel/redo that will not only drop the Wolfman title, but also has a horrible director attached at the helm. Our very good friends at Moviehole broke the news this early morning that Uni has renamed Wolfman to a super lame and cheesy Werewolf, and has attached Louis Morneau to direct. Morneau's impressive (pure sarcasm) credits include Joy Ride 2 : Dead Ahead, The Hitcher II : I've Been Waiting, Bats with Lou Diamond Phillips, and Retroactive with Jim Belushi. This new film penned by Michael Tabb - will share a link to the original George Waggner film (from 1941) rather than Joe Johnstons ill-fated 2009 remake starring Benicio del Toro. »
