There are plenty of old movie monsters out there just waiting to get the reboot treatment, and it looks like ol’ Wolfy is ready for his close-up. Benicio Del Toro is sporting the claws and fur, in what promises to be a much gorier than the 1941 version. The story is a familiar one, with a normal guy getting bitten by a magical wolf creature, which causes him to get all Lycanthropic (that’s a nerd word for werewolf) any time there’s a full moon. If it’s a success, we can probably look forward to more, including cameos from Frankenstein and maybe Dracula.
