    'The Wolf Man' returns

    Anthony Hopkins confirms he's in 'The Wolf Man'


    After months of speculation from both film sites and Benicio Del Toro, we’re happy to finally confirm that legendary thesp Anthony Hopkins is indeed joining Universal’s new take on a classic monster.

    “I’m going to do ‘The Wolf Man’ with Benicio Del Toro,” Hopkins stated matter-of-factly during an interview for his new experimental art film, “Slipstream.”

    Hopkins will play Sir John Talbot, father to Del Toro’s Lawrence Talbot, the character who becomes afflicted with the werewolf curse. The pic — scheduled for an early ‘09 release — is helmed by music video director Mark Romanek, who has worked with such acts as Weezer, Michael Jackson, Madonna and R.E.M.

    Cool. So I'm guessing it's an actual remake, right?

    From the article link above:
    Universal Pictures will scare up a new version of its horror classic "The Wolf Man," with Benicio Del Toro playing the title role. Se7en screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker has begun writing the script. Scott Stuber, Rick Yorn, Mary Parent and Del Toro will produce.

    Like the 1941 original that starred Lon Chaney Jr., the new film will be set in Victorian England. Del Toro will play a man who returns from America to his ancestral homeland, gets bitten by a werewolf and begins a hairy moonlight existence.

    Walker spent several months working on some frightening new twists to a familiar tale, adding several characters and plot points that take advantage of cutting-edge visual effects technology.

    This looks exciting. I'd watch soaps if they had Anthony Hopkins in them, and Del Toro already looks like the Wolf man, so it should be pretty good.
