Take a break from work: watch a trailer…
I’d been hearing about Benicio Del Toro in a Wolfman reboot for a while, but it never occurred to me that it wouldn’t be set in the present day. I’m not sure why, I just assumed it would be modern. I guess they’re adhering more closely to the 1941 film than we’ve come to expect from remakes.
The film’s release date has been pushed back a few times, but I’m somewhat heartened by the fact that the script is by Andrew Kevin Walker, who wrote Sleepy Hollow, and David Self, who adapted Road to Perdition. A Wolfman movie that feels like a mashup of those two couldn’t be bad. And I really liked director Joe Johnston’s last film, Hidalgo.
The Wolfman opens in the U.S. and the U.K. on February 12, 2010.
