It’s no secret that director John Landon’s son Max Landis (Chronicle) has always wanted to reboot his father’s classic An American Werewolf in London, but the reboot been dead in the water for years. Now, it’s suddenly sprung to life.
Word is, “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman has now come on board to produce the reboot, meaning that the film is now moving forward.
In the original film, “David and Jack, two American college students, are backpacking through Britain when a large wolf attacks them. David survives with a bite, but Jack is brutally killed. As David heals in the hospital, he’s plagued by violent nightmares of his mutilated friend, who warns him that he is becoming a werewolf. When David discovers the horrible truth, he contemplates committing suicide before the next full moon causes him to transform from man to murderous beast.”
John Landis not only directed the 1981 film but wrote it as well and did so when he was only nineteen. David Naughton, Griffin Dunne, and Jenny Agutter starred in An American Werewolf in London, still one of the most iconic horror films ever made.
At the moment, that’s all we know. But hopefully, more information will soon come to light. When it does, we’ll let you know.
