Max Landis is currently scripting his very own remake of his father John’s classic film An American Werewolf in London, and he just revealed over on Twitter that he’s finishing up the first draft today. Landis may or may not end up directing the film, which may or may not end up actually being made at all. Who knows. But he’s writing it.
“Finishing my first draft of An American Werewolf In London today,” Landis tweeted this morning. “Took me way longer than usual because every time I opened the Final Draft file my laptop would slam closed under the weight of my father’s expectations.”
Later in the day, Landis dug a bit into his vision for a modern day take on An American Werewolf in London, highlighting a question from the original he’s aiming to answer.
A fan asked Landis the following question…
“I’ve always wondered this point: it seems like the villagers dispatch the werewolf pretty easily once they decide to go out after Jack and David…why did they never do it before? Did they know the guy who was the wolf?”
To which Landis replied…
“Answering this question and the nature of the village’s role in the plot in the second and third act as of now are the biggest changes I’ve made to the original structure. I always wondered about that Pentagram. Doing some fun stuff.”
“I’m going to do my best to make it great,” Landis recently promised.
