Universal Pictures said a few days ago that they would have a new director for The Wolfman. And finally they have.

A week after Mark Romanek exited due to "creative differences", director Joe Johnston has been confirmed by Variety. The trade says that producers Scott Stuber and Mary Parent played a critical part in keeing this 85 million budgeted film on track, despite the director shake-up.

Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins and Emily Blunt are still set to star in the film and make-up wizard Rick Baker (American Werewolf in London) is still set to handle the creature effects. Production will begin next month in London.

Plot Concept: Like the 1941 original that starred Lon Chaney Jr., except 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. FX maestro Rick Baker is on lycanthrope duties bringing "The Wolfman" to life.

The Wolfman will hit theaters Feb 13, 2009.
