News has come that Julia Garner has sunk her teeth into a role in the upcoming reinvention of the Universal classic The Wolf Man, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Garner, the Emmy-winning powerhouse from “Ozark,” joins Christopher Abbott in Blumhouse’s chilling update on the classic.

This iteration sheds the skin of the original’s cursed couple, focusing instead on a family battling for survival against the beast’s bloodthirsty rampage. While Blumhouse keeps mum on specific plot details, their track record with movies like Five Nights at Freddy’s and M3GAN promises a thrillingly unpredictable encounter with the werewolf.

Leigh Whannell, the genre virtuoso behind the fantastic reimagining of Universal’s The Invisible Man and franchises like Saw and Insidious, returns to the director’s chair for this monstrous project that will have you howling at the moon. He initially boarded when Ryan Gosling was attached, but a pandemic caused a shakeup. Derek Cianfrance took the reins briefly before Whannell stepped in.

Garner, a force of nature who captivated audiences as Ruth Langmore in “Ozark,” brings her captivating intensity to this new chapter. Her Emmy-winning talent guarantees a visceral performance, whether facing down the wolf or witnessing the terror it unleashes.

Fans were first introduced to The Wolf Man in 1923. But the 1941 version directed by George Waggner made its mark on horror fans worldwide, starring cinematic legends like Lon Chaney Jr. and Claude Rains. The iconic 40’s film is still as popular as ever. Over the years, with its Blu-ray, DVD, and re-release collections taking home multiple award nominations and a Saturn Award. The iconic film has inspired many others, including the 1979 film Wolfman and the 2010 film The Wolfman starring Anthony Hopkins and Benicio Del Toro, as well as a horde of other werewolf movies.

The Wolf Man will sink its teeth into theaters nationwide on October 25, 2024. Keep your eyes peeled for updates, and brace yourself for a terrifying howl that will redefine a cinematic legend.
