Last we heard back in August, Max Landis is halfway through writing his script for a new take on An American Werewolf in London, which he also plans on directing. Many fans have expressed their displeasure about the project’s mere existence, but what does Max’s dad feel about all this?
John Landis of course directed the original An American Werewolf in London, and in a new chat with Collider, he revealed that he’s not exactly on board for a remake.
“Truthfully, I’ve not seen his script. I advised him not to do it,” Landis told the site. “I think he’s putting himself in a bad position. My son is brilliant, he really is, and he wants to do it. So what am I going to say? No? I know it won’t be as bad as An American Werewolf in Paris, which was shit. So, I don’t know. He’s a great writer. He’s been writing since he was 7. He wrote a whole series of scripts about these characters called Yelp and Dopey, two dumb dogs, when he was under ten. They were so funny.”
When asked if he’d be involved in the film, Landis simply responded, “I get money.”
