Universal taps Prisoners writer for Wolfman Remake
Quite honestly, 2010’s The Wolfman remake got more right than it did wrong. A visually sumptuous and stunning callback to the gothic horrors of yesteryear, the Joe Johnson film’s set designs and lunar-lit cinematography were almost as gorgeous as Rick Baker’s Oscar winning make-up design.
Oh sure, the screenplay was a complete mess and the ending was almost as disappointing as Bencio Del Toro’s lead performance, but it got a lot closer to why Universal Pictures’ 1930s and ‘40s horror movies are still classics than Van Helsing did (or Dracula Untold for that matter…). Nevertheless, Universal is ready to start from scratch again with character who is getting the reboot treatment just in time for a planned Universal Monsters shared movie universe.
