‘The Wolfman’ Retool Becomes Crappy Direct-to-Disc ‘Werewolf’

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 Johnston’s ill-fated 2009 remake starring Benicio del Toro.

The original 1941 film, starring Lon Chaney in the title role, told of a a practical man who returns to his homeland, is attacked by a creature of folklore, and infected with a horrific disease his disciplined mind tells him can not possibly exist.
