Maybe it’s because Rick Baker and Dave Elsey just won an Oscar for “Best Makeup” at this year’s Academy Awards, or maybe the home video sales alone were through the roof, but Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned that Universal Pictures’ is planning to retool The Wolfman yet again.
Universal is out to writers for what they’re calling a period piece reboot (again) of George Waggner’s classic 1941 film starring Lon Chaney Jr. as The Wolf Man.
The only details I have is that it’s supposed to start a fresh direct-to-disc franchise like what they’re doing with Death Race, although their direction is still unconfirmed.
The 2010 Joe Johnston-directed remake starring Benicio Del Toro took in $140 million worldwide. Not all that impressive.
