Recently, Deadline announced that director Derek Cianfrance will now write & helm The Wolfman for Universal Pictures. The Invisible Man director Leigh Whannell had boarded The Wolfman last year but recently left the project due to a scheduling conflict. Ryan Gosling was tapped to star late last year and was a big proponent of Derek Cianfrance taking over. The two worked together on The Place Beyond the Pines. This film will be a modern take on the classic monster character as opposed to Benicio del Toro’s period piece in 2010. Gosling, Ken Kao, and Jason Blum will produce the project for Blumhouse.
The Wolfman has no set release date
