Universal Pictures is rebooting The Wolfman for a straight-to-DVD franchise
The studio is currently seeking out writers to tackle a new incarnation of the classic monster tale. Like the 2010 movie The Wolfman, this remake will also be a period piece, although no other plot details were revealed.
The Wolfman took in $61 million at the domestic box office and just under $140 million worldwide. The production budget was listed at $150 million.
The move is similar to Universal's straight-to-DVD franchise it launched with Death Race 2 in January.
The Wolfman was released February 12th, 2010 and stars Simon Merrells, Gemma Whelan, Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Mario Marin-Borquez, Asa Butterfield, Cristina Contes, Anthony Hopkins. The film is directed by Joe Johnston.
