Universal Turns To Louis Morneau
To Direct Wolfman Reboot
Universal Pictures has tapped Carnosaur 2 director Louis Morneau to helm its follow-up to its 2010 remake of The Wolfman, Moviehole reports.
Titled The Werewolf, the project was originally set to be a sequel to the critically and commercially disappointing film. However, the studio scrapped those plans and instead had Michael Tabb rework his screenplay into an original feature described as “almost a reboot of the classic Universal monster movie series.” According to Moviehole, the new version has more in common with George Waggner’s 1941 classic that it does with Joe Johnston’s heavily criticized remake.
Morneau’s filmography also includes Bats, The Hitchhiker II: I’ve Been Waiting and Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead, which may provide a clue to what we should expect from The Werewolf.
