Wolfman Reboot Gets “Bats” Director

Louis Morneau (“Bats,” “Joy Ride 2”) has been tapped to direct “Werewolf”, the second reboot of “The Wolfman” for Universal Pictures reports Moviehole.

Originally the plan was to do a sequel to the Benicio Del Toro-led 2009 remake, now the studio is instead doing an original film which will share a link to the original George Waggner 1941 film. Michael Tabb has rewritten the script and shooting aims to kick off this Fall.

Bloody Disgusting adds that the film will go direct-to-disc rather than theatrical, which explains Morneau’s hiring.
