Steven Bauer (Scarface, Raising Cain) revealed in an interview with Moviehole that he will star alongside both Stephen Rea (Interview with the Vampire, V for Vendetta) and Ed Quinn (“Eureka”) in Universal Home Entertainment’s untitled Werewolf, a potential reboot of The Wolfman being directed by Louis Morneau.
The new film, penned by Michael Tabb, will take place in a 1901 Romania with the lead character, “Daniel,” caring for his sick mother and attending medical school. Daniel is then recruited to join a group of nomad bounty-hunters tracking down “a disturbing presence” terrorizing the town. Daniel and “Charles” quickly bond and must work together to uncover who this new breed of werwolf is. From what I’m being told, this sequel is very “whodunit”.
Mega hottie Jessica Szohr, who got all wet and slippery in Piranha 3D, is returning to the genre with the horror sex comedy Love Bite, which will be shot in Scotland.
Ed Speleers (Eragon) and Luke Pasqualino (The Borgias) are also on board Andy de Emmony‘s flick, says THR.
Emmony’s movie, billed as a sex comedy/horror, is set to shoot in Scotland at the beginning of October.
The script details “the story of four friends who find their dead-end town in turmoil after a bloodthirsty werewolf starts gnawing local virgins. The quartet subsequently realize that losing their virginity might provide the best route to survival.”
It was penned by Ronan Blaney and Cris Cole.
Bloody Disgusting has exclusive word on Universal Home Entertainment’s direct-to-video sequel to Joe Johnston’s The Wolfman redo that’s apparently NOT going with the crappy Werewolf title. As of this writing the feature is untitled. Louis Morneau is directing from a screenplay by Michael Tabb.

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.
A new scene from MTV’s Teen Wolf series made its way online today, featuring Scott (Tyler Posey) trying to get laid and failing miserably at it. He’s at that age where his hormones are racing, so I feel bad for him but at least he still has masturbation. I mean, his palms can’t get any hairier…
What really caught me by surprise is that a cover of ‘Tonight, Tonight’ by Passion Pit plays over the clip. The song, originally performed by The Smashing Pumpkins, is easily one of my favorite songs of all time (and definitely one of the best music videos ever).
If the full trailer for MTV’s Teen Wolf series made you cringe, then this one is guaranteed to put you to sleep. Granted, it doesn’t show much, save for Tyler Posey (in the Michael J. Fox role) staring around the forest bewildered after a transformation, but would it kill them to throw some van surfing in there?!?
The original used Scott’s transformations as a metaphor for puberty, but this time around it’s being used as a springboard for a giant (read: they hope audiences will think it’s elaborate, but it probably won’t be) mystery rooted in the town’s secrets. I commend them for taking the remake/reboot/whatever the hell this thing turns out being in a radically different direction, but I wish they would’ve used something better as an obvious inspiration (one of the fight scenes in the full trailer looks like it was ripped right out of Twilight‘s finale, same lighting and everything).
Looks like Russell Mulcahy directed six of the upcoming season’s twelve episodes, including the pilot. My my, how far he has fallen since Razorback and Highlander… The series is set to premiere on June 5, following the MTV Movie Awards.
