Lon Chaney

Apparently Universal wasn’t too pleased with the results of their new Joe Johnston directed version of The Wolfman that came out last year. That film, that starred Benicio del Toro and Anthony Hopkins, was set to get a sequel, but now plans are changing. Movie Hole is reporting that Michael Tabb’s script for a sequel is getting reworked into a new start for the series that will be more in keeping with the original Lon Chaney starring film from 1941 that is oft heralded as being a classic. Reportedly, the title of this new film is tentatively set to be Werewolf. I probably would have gone with The Werewolfman just to keep that lack of brevity thing Rise of the Planet of the Apes started going.

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past.

What horrid monster has come from the depths of a science lab in deepest Louisiana? Why is a young woman convinced her husband has been turned into a scaly killer? Why does Lon Chaney have that hook? All answers will be revealed in stunning black and white! Why they haven’t remade this is beyond me. Think you know what it is? Check the trailer out for yourself:
