It has always been inevitable that John Landis’ An American Werewolf in London was going to find itself on the remake chopping block, so John’s son Max Landis decided to take matters into his own hands and spearhead the project.
As we told you earlier this year, Landis wrote a script that he hopes to direct.
Speaking with Fandom at NYCC this past weekend, Landis teased that the remake, which isn’t yet a sure thing, may feature cameos that’ll surely make you smile.
“Griffin Dunne… what about Jenny Agutter? Come on, Jenny’s killing it right now. She was in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It made me so excited! Yeah, there’s cameos from ideally literally everyone,” Landis said of his script.
“There’s no guarantee that movie will exist but I’m very excited about it,” Landis added. “I’m not here to remake American Werewolf in London into something it isn’t, I want to do everything from the original movie modern, and that’s it. I mean, not Gus Van Sant’s Psycho. There will be my stuff in there, but if it exists I hope it’s good.”
“I’m going to do my best to make it great.“
