‘The Wolfman’ May be Delayed Until Fall
Fangoria is reporting that the Joe Johnston-directed remake of Universal’s classic The Wolfman may miss its April 3 release date. Benicio Del Toro stars as Lawrence Talbot who is bitten by a werewolf and endures the agonizing transformation every time the moon is full and the wolf’s bane bright and now may wait until fall.
The movie was written by Andrew Kevin Walker and David Self with make-up effects from Oscar-winning monster maker Rick Baker.
This was Universal’s first step in freshening that brand following their success with The Mummy films starting Brendan Fraser. The studio intends to patiently wait for Guillermo del Toro to finish The Hobbit before he takes on a remake of Frankenstein, the one that started it all back in 1931.
