Joe Johnston’s “The Wolf Man”, starring Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt, and the great Anthony Hopkins, used to be Mark Romanek’s “The Wolf Man” until the ever popular “creative differences” sent him packing, and Johnston was brought in to finish the production. After losing a director and getting its release date pushed back, the troubled film will finally see the inside of theaters in early 2010. February 10, 2010, to be exact. Check out the first trailer for the movie below, and see what all the fuzz, bad or otherwise, is about.
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.
Starring Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Hugo Weaving, Anthony Hopkins, Geraldine Chaplin, Kiran Shah, Art Malik, Elizabeth Croft, Sam Hazeldine, David Sterne, and directed by Joe Johnston.
