The hairiest of Universal Monsters will arrive in 2018.
With the awful Dracula Untold a distant memory, and The Mummy nearing production for release on March 24, 2017, Universal Pictures has set March 30, 2018 for their re-remake of Wolf Man.
Aaron Guzikowski, who wrote Prisoners, and is in talks to pen Friday the 13th, is taking on this iconic Universal Monster.
The 1941 The Wolf Man starred Lon Chaney Jr. as the title character and Lawrence Stewart Talbot, while the 2010 version saw Benicio Del Toro as the Wolf.
There’s also rumors swirling that Universal wants Tom Cruise for a pivotal role, which we suspect would be Van Helsing, which would tie the cinematic universe together. The question is, will Helsing appear in both The Mummy and Wolf Man?
Universal is also developing The Creature From the Black Lagoon, with hopes of securing Scarlett Johansson for the lead role, and Bride of Frankenstein, which could resurrect Angelina Jolie Pitt as the Monster’s companion. No word on what’s up with an actual Frankenstein, and how the flop of FOX’s Victor Frankenstein might affect this entire plan.
