THE WOLFMAN Now Being Helmed By Joe Johnston!

Last week, it was reported that director Mark Romanek had left the upcoming WOLFMAN remake from Universal Pictures. (Set to star Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins and Emily Blunt with the legendary Rick Baker on FX duty.) Dozens of names have been mentioned as replacements from Frank Darabont to John Landis, Neil Marshall and Guillermo Del Toro. We didn’t want to report anything until something was official. Both Variety and Ain’t It Cool News are confirming that Joe Johnston (OCTOBER SKY, JURASSIC PARK III, THE ROCKETEER) is the new director of THE WOLF MAN. Production is set to begin next month in the UK with a release for next year. Andrew Kevin Walker (SE7EN) wrote the script.
