Has Universal Found The Wolfman’s Love Interest?

Today more casting news was announced for Mark Romanek’s updating of the Universal classic The Wolfman. A trusted source tells CHUD that the role of Gwen – the Wolf Man’s love interest – will be played by Emily Blunt (Wind Chill). In the 1941 original Gwen was a local Welsh girl who runs an antique shop. She sells Larry Talbot his famous silver cane. I’ve heard rumors that the Gwen in the 21st century version will be married to Larry’s brother, making their love [gasp!] forbidden. Like the 1941 original that starred Lon Chaney Jr., new pic will be set in Victorian England. Benicio Del Toro will play a man who returns from America to his ancestral homeland, gets bitten by a werewolf and begins a hairy moonlight existence.
