Do we really need a remake of An American Werewolf In London? We've already had to endure a lukewarm retread in 1997, when Anthony Waller switched locations to Paris and dressed his monstrosity in sheep's clothing. Well, Max Landis is reported to be on board for the remake, taking over from his father, John. Landis is set to write and direct the new film and there really isn't a lot of information besides that. Looks like Jack won't be dead for long.
The Walking Dead's David Alpert and Robert Kirkman will produce alongside Andy Trapani, who has been trying to put this film together for nearly a decade. Landis, by the way, wrote Chronicle, so there is a silver lining if you want to look on the bright side of things. He also wrote Victor Frankenstein. Take from that what you will. An American Werewolf is one of our favourite horror movies so perhaps we're being unfair, but I'd rather take my chances at The Slaughtered Lamb than sit through another CGI schlock-fest. Think we'll keep clear of the moors on this one.
