I have to say I'm excited at the prospect of this although it's Del Toro and Andrew Kevin Walkers participation more than Johnson. Many people knocked Lost World but it was darn site better than Johnsons awful JP3.

I am optimistic will pull off a Curtis Hanson style reinvention of his career with this as the material is too good to waste, it's just if does a lacklustre job like Ratner on Red Dragon when a more talented auteur like Romanek would have done it justice it's gonna be one hell of a bitter pill to take.

I'm really happy with the way this is going, as the original is favourite of mine. I like the focus on the old make-up design, and the broadening of the original's scope. I'm confident in Del Toro, and I'm confident in Johnston, who hired David Self to polish the script.

Ginger Snaps is awesome - one of the best werewolf movies ever!, dog Soldiers was good too , the 80's had the best ones though.

There hasn't been a good Dracula or Frankenstein movie for a couple of decades, either.

In Empire's defence they did say a 'really good werewolf movie' . Dog Soldiers and Ginger Snaps may have pretty good but they weren't really good.

I just really really hope the physical stuff really does win out over CG.

There hasn't been a good werewolf movie for a while so this movie has alot to live up to and that was a lot of hypefor the transformation in my opinion American werewolf in london is still the best werewolf trnasformation ever !!!! but his film has a lot of potential I hope it's like the Francis ford coppola Dracula and the Kenneth Branagh Frankenstein in the 90's and if this works i can see more werewolf movies jus like when Gladiator was a success and we got crap like troy and alexander.

But Dracula and Frankenstein (particularly) bombed!

Ginger Snaps was one of the most interesting takes on the werewolf story and, IMO, was a really good movie. I'd disagree on Dog Soldiers as well - but that was more an action film. But Ginger Snaps had the ideas and was superbly executed.

And while it would be nice to see another good one it is an ongoing cinema staple - recent kak like Cursed and Blood and Chocolate bear that out. Interesting cast (assuming Hopkins doesn't do his usual playing Hopkins and tries acting for the first time in quite a while) - but Johnston hardly engenders enthusiasm. Nor does rewrite man.

Only if you're 14.

There are only three good modern werewolf movies - The Howling, An American Werewolf in London and Dog Soldiers. Everything else ranges from "alright" (Wolfen, Silver Bullet, A Company Of Wolves, Wolf) to awful (The Howling sequels, An American Werewolf In Paris) to soul-destroyingly pathetic (Cursed).

I'm not really sure about this Wolfman reboot. I'd like to see another good movie in the werewolf canon but my gut feeling is this'll be closer to Van Helsing than anything else.

You know coz Benecio is a method actor and likes to live his part (he even insisted to be called Jackie on set on Sin City)
Oh and to those who says there hasn't been a good werewolf movie in decades - I'm with many other people here - Dog Soldiers. The werewolves were fantastic and so was the rest of the movie.

Rick Baker's got it on the money to be able to capture that Chaney-furry look and still make it scary as hell. I'm sure Chaney Snr, the father of horrorific make up artistry would've been proud.

A little disconcerted that a script by Walker has to be rewritten. His inclusion in the crew was what gave me hope this would be a standout, afterall Del Toro and Hopkins are human enough to be hobbled by their material.

I just hope Johnston's love of monster movies leads him the extra mile, Jurassic Park 3 was hardly inspiring (excepting pteranodons).

Too right! Branagh's Frankenstein was shite and Coppola's Dracula was very... camp. Hmm. Hopkins was the best thing in that and lets not even mention the, ahem, Harkers. Good god. "Dude! Its, like, Dracula, maaan." "Yuh!, I know, dude! It, like, so frickin' is!"

Bring on either Tim Burton (see Sleepy Hollow windmill) or Guillermo DelTorro for Frankenstein, I say.

I can't wait. I'm particularly glad to read that it's not going to rely too heavily on CG. This can only be good as the CG thing is now starting to look a bit samey. Bring back some craft!!

I can't believe it! I can't think of a half decent werewolf movie which features CG. Hooray. Shame it's a balls sucking remake though.

Del Toro's actually planning a version of Frankenstein, among a million other projects. But it's probably a TV mini-series rather than a movie.

It's all good! I must have missed that. Looking forward to his At the Mountains of Madness - obviously on his 'to do' list too.

Guillermo Del Torro on Branagh's Frankenstein- "Yeah, I promise one thing. If I do Frankenstein ever, I will not star in it or appear shirtless. I can promise you that! People are at least not going to puke."
I love this guy, ha ha ha.
