Universal’s The Wolfman was a disappointment in 2010. (It’s ranked #96 for the year on Flickchart.) Production woes and re-shoots resulted in Universal spending more money on it than they’d intended, so it might be surprising to learn that the company intends to reboot the franchise.
Reportedly, the new film (tentatively titled “Werewolf“) is intended to have much more in common with the 1941 original, The Wolf Man, than the 2010 film does. Werewolves haven’t been a big draw at the box office as of late (unless you count the Twilight franchise, which is really more about the vampires, isn’t it?), but Universal is apparently shopping for directors and hoping to begin shooting as early as this fall.
