Poor old wolfy. It seems that the hair covered Benicio Del Toro flick ‘The Wolf Man’ has been hit with another set back, in this case it’s been put back once again. And now it’s slipped all the way down to a 2010 slated release – the fourth announced release date in the life of this monster feature.
Universal are claiming the decision to stamp this revamp with a February 2010 release is to balance out the giggles with scares by going up against Warner Bros. romantic comedy ‘Valentine’s Day’.
“Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman, is lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father, Talbot sets out to find his brother… and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Talbot’s childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother’s fiancée, Gwen Conliffe, tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline has come to investigate.”
The revamp (rewolf!?) stars Benicio Del Toro in the title role alongside Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt and Hugo Weaving.
