Fango just heard through the grapevine that we may have to wait a little longer to see Benicio Del Toro get hairy. Word is that Universal is delaying THE WOLFMAN from its previously announced April 3 debut to sometime next fall.
Directed by Joe (JURASSIC PARK III) Johnston from a script by Andrew Kevin Walker and David Self, the remake of Universal’s 1941 classic THE WOLF MAN stars Del Toro (pictured) as Lawrence Talbot, who in this scenario is an actor who returns to his ancestral home and falls victim to the lycanthropic curse. Oscar-winning monster maker Rick Baker created Talbot’s beastly side and the carnage (which we’re told will be R-rated) he creates. We’ll try to sniff out specific new release-date news to bring to you; our magazine coverage of THE WOLFMAN begins in Fango #279, on sale in December.
