Mark Romanek Leaves Wolfman Movie

The “Wolf Man” remake has just lost its director. News from The Hollywood Reporter is that director Mark Romanek has walked off the horror project, citing the ever popular “creative differences”, though the trade didn’t say with who Romanek had the “differences” with — stars Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins or, more likely, the studio/producers.

Romanek’s departure harkens back to another troubled Universal production, “State of Play,” which lost stars Brad Pitt and Ed Norton weeks before shooting, only to be reborn like a phoenix from the ashes with a pair of new stars, Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck.

The studio is currently on the hunt for its phoenix director.

With Del Toro and Hopkins onboard, I’m sure the studio won’t have a whole lot of trouble finding a director who’ll want to work with them.
