I might not actually be able to watch!
It seems this project has been on and off for years, but with new involvement, there might be moonlight at the end of the tunnel and in the somewhat nearer future.
**25 November 2019** Okay, so it’s been a while since I’ve been able to update this post -but! There is news. But just a little bit. It’s a possible move forward towards a remake involving Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman who is also involved in the Renfield project. And that really is about all there is, we know he’s involved but not at what level -so, as per the last few years, watch this space.
**From Previous Updates** IMDb currently tells us the status of this movie is Script and that it’s about a girl and her boyfriend traveling through the UK when she gets bitten. And that this new storyline will run alongside the original script -which is intriguing.
In November 2018, we were told that Edgar Wright, director of Shaun of the Dead and Baby Driver, had passed on doing An American Werewolf Remake. You can read more about why and how much he loved the original movie here.
So…few deep breaths…
Set in Britain (where I live), regulars to a quaint village pub -The Slaughtered Lamb- provide a cautionary tale to two American Students. Venturing out into the woods, despite being told to stay on the roads, they encounter a werewolf. At this point, I realized I had a desperate need for a drink and so nipped to the kitchen. Then there was the laundry that needed taking upstairs before I could return to the movie (no, I hadn’t paused it first. I was about 10, why was I doing laundry?). So, anyway, the surviving student begins to have nightmares – one of which is his dead friend coming back to warn him. Then there was a thing with a nurse. Look the point is, this movie gave me nightmares for weeks. Apparently, I woke the whole house up with my screams.
The original movie was written and directed by John Landis
Could we possibly put a stop to the sharing of American Werewolf in London props and memorabilia on social media? There was the coolest werewolf prop on Instagram recently and I both loathed it instantly and wanted it desperately – there should be no moment in life when anyone should see that combination of emotion on my face.
Can’t believe I’m sharing this on my blog – you can actually buy these things.
