Yay!!! Another remake!! You know me, I think all movies should be remakes and sequels!! *sigh* The next remake on the list is from Universal, where they are planning on remaking the 1941 horror classic THE WOLF MAN, which originally starrred Lon Chaney, Jr. The film is set for a 2008 release. Normally I would be JimSmashing all over this for various, obvious reasons. However, there are 2 reasons why there may be some glimmer of Hope for this movie:
1) Andrew Kevin Walker is writing it. He also wrote SE7EN.
2) Benicio Del Toro is cast as the lead role. Sweet.
With that said, I also thought the same thing when WOLF was coming out. "Jack Nicholson as the Wolfman?! How could it NOT suck??!!" yeesh. So, keep your fingers crossed everyone!!!!
