New Added Special Effects Push Wolfman Release Back To February

It appears that the release of "The Wolfman", starring Benicio del Toro, has been pushed back yet once again. The remake of the 1941 film, which starred Lon Chaney Jr., has now had it's release date changed a total of four times. Originally slated for a 2007 release, the film has suffered setbacks due to director changes and the unwillingness of Universal Studios to place the film up against other popular releases, now has been postponed due to new special effects being added.

Universal had recently planned to release "The Wolfman" in November, that was before they realised that the film would be going head-to-head against the "Twilight" sequel, "New Moon".

Feeling that a February 2010 release would be better for the film has given the production team time to go back in and add some new effects to the film. Mainly changing Del Toro's Wolfman from a monster on two legs, like Chaney's werewolf in the original, to one that travels around on four legs, like a 'real' wolf.

Now, being a fan of the original 1941 film, and the subsequent sequels produced by Universal in the 1940s, I think that this is a bad idea. There have been dozens of modern werewolf movies made over the past few decades were a human transforms into a savage wolf. I was really looking forward to seeing a character that was more like Chaney's.....and the publicity photos of Del Toro as a more 'human-like' Wolfman looked spectacular.

I'll be interested in seeing how fans react to this news.
