Looks like we’ve got Taylor Lautner’s abs to thank for these upcoming werewolf movie remakes.
In June 2009, Dimension films announced plans to remake John Landis’ 1981 cult classic An American Werewolf in London. We were skeptical at the time, and we’re even more so now.
Over a year after the announcement, they’re finally in talks with screenwriter Fernley Phillips to write the script. Phillips wrote Jim Carrey’s VERY questionably watchable The Number 23. News like this makes it hard for us to remain overly optimistic.
Another werewolf remake in the works is Paramount’s Teen Wolf, based on the 1985 comedy starring Michael J. Fox.
We’re nervous about this remake, because if it goes well, they might try to remake the absurd 1987 sequel, Teen Wolf Too, which starred Jason Bateman. Sorry for reminding the world about this Jason, but don’t worry…we’re all still stoked for the Arrested Development movie!
What werewolf movie do you think they’ll remake next?
