An American Werewolf in London is hands down one of my all-time favorite The Thing and Day of the Dead. I’m sure most you have it listed in your top 10 list too. Obviously, talking about a remake is a bit touchy and most horror hounds already feel disappointed with the news.films alongside
If you remember well, a sequel was released in 1997, but it centered completely on a different group of characters in Paris. It sort of felt like a remake since the love story was quite similar to the classic and some scenes felt reshot multiple times. Worst of all, the horror film relied on CGI effects, which was subpar compared to the Oscar-winning makeup effects created by Rick Baker. So let’s just hope to remake will have a great original script and thewill go back to using traditional techniques with latex materials and all the fancy stuff Baker used in An American Werewolf in London.
Speaking of director, it appears like Universal Pictures is trying to tap someone very special, who will also be handling the script writing duties. Max Landis, son of John Landis, is currently negotiating a deal to direct a remake of his father’s An American Werewolf in London. So the news isn’t all that bad after all.
John Landis will executive produce the film, with Todd Garner and Matt Smith also on board as producers. The remake is currently in development.
