Universal just won't give up on The Wolf Man!
While last year's Wolf Man reboot was less-than-phenomenal, it DID win the Oscar for Best Makeup, and the studio has decided to give the franchise another shot…on DVD.
The new Wolf Man will be a "period piece reboot" of the 1941 Lon Chaney Jr. classic film, and Universal is reportedly aiming for the new movie to be the beginning of a direct-to-dvd franchise for the werewolf series.
Universal is currently looking for writers for this reboot of the VERY recent Wolf Man film, which was also a reboot. Ha!
Let's hope they find someone skilled this time around…the last one had great actors and really impressive makeup work. The main problem there was definitely in the script.
Are U ready for another Wolf Man? Or do U think the franchise should be put down with a silver bullet?
