Universal is one of the few studios that has become financially conservative in these tough, economic times, passing on or rejecting big-budgeted projects like Ron Howard's adaptation of The Dark Tower series and director Guillermo del Toro's R-rated adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness. But if there's one thing Universal won't give up on, it's a reboot of 1941's The Wolf Man.
Despite not even earning back its budget on last year's The Wolfman, Universal has given the thumbs up to a second reboot, titled Werewolf. It's not as crazy as it sounds. Initially, Universal was planning a sequel to The Wolfman, but after it bombed at the box office (ironically forcing the studio to shut the door on The Dark Tower and At the Mountains of Madness months later), the sequel was salvaged into the now-reboot of Werewolf. who else joined the cast? >> Posted 09.18.11 by Ryan
