Blumhouse is on track to bring the full moon out on the production of the Wolfman. The Jason Blum production company has fast-tracked production on their second Universal Monsters based film, this time focusing on Universal’s cursed, hairy fella.
Whannell, also directed Blumhouse’s smash $124 million box office hit, The Invisible Man. The film opened up the possibilities of an expanded universe that failed previously with Tom Cruise’s The Mummy. In addition, Whannell has been attached to other Blumhouse projects like Upgrade, Insidious, etc…
Whannell is onboard to write the Wolfman treatment with Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo on as screenwriters.
The last time we saw the Wolfman on the big screen was with the Benicio Del Toro and Joe Johnston effort in 2010. The film was not a box office success, although I still hold that it has its strong points. The original 1941 George Waggner and Claude Rains classic picture is among Universal Monster’s most memorable and beloved.
Gosling is a great pick for the role of the Wolfman, if you have seen Blade Runner 2049, Drive or Only God Forgives, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
