News John Landis Reveals He Wrote ‘An American Werewolf in London’ Sequel in 1991 Published 1 year ago on November 21, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Did you know that An American Werewolf in London director John Landis actually wrote a 1991 sequel to his 1981 horror-comedy classic? Well, if you’ve never heard about it until now, then continue reading for the full lowdown. It’s already been detailed in Paul Davis’ new book Beware the Moon: The Story of An American Werewolf in London, as reported today via Digital Spy. “I was asked to do a sequel by PolyGram in 1991,” Landis explains. “The company, under Jon Peters and Peter Guber, made something like 10 or 12 movies, and the only one that made money was American Werewolf.” “I entertained the idea for a little bit and then came up with something that I liked and wrote a first draft of the script.” Landis revealed more… “The movie was about the girl that the boys talk about at the beginning of [An American Werewolf in London], Debbie Klein. She gets a job in London as a literary agent and while she’s there, starts privately investigating the circumstances surrounding the deaths of Jack and David.” “The conceit was that during the time in the first film where Jenny goes to work and David is pacing around the apartment, he actually wrote Debbie Klein a letter. It was all to do with this big secret that David had never told Jack that he had a thing with her.” “She tracks down Dr Hirsch, who tells her that Alex now lives in Paris because she was so traumatized by what happened. She went back to the Slaughtered Lamb and everyone is still there! I think the only changes were a portrait of Charles and Diana where the five-pointed star used to be and darts arcade game instead of a board.” “It’s then when she speaks to Sgt McManus, the cop from the first movie who didn’t die, that she finds out that Jenny is still in London. She calls her and leaves an answer phone message, which we then reveal is being listened to by the skeletal corpses of Jack and David, watching TV in Alex’s apartment!” “The big surprise at the end was that Alex was the werewolf. It was pretty wild. The script had everybody in it from the first movie – including all the dead people!” However, Landis noted: “I gave the script to Michael Kuhn and he loathed it! He absolutely hated it and was actually pretty insulting about it. Clearly he would have hated the script for the first movie, because like that, it was funny and scary – and if anything, a little wackier.“ Related Topics:An American Werewolf In LondonJohn Landis Up Next Danielle Harris Must Face Malevolent Forces in Christopher Lawrence Chapman’s ‘Inoperable’ Don't Miss DELAYED: Next Year’s ‘Halloween’ Film Doesn’t Begin Shooting Until Mid-January Advertisement You may like Max Landis Shares a New Update on ‘American Werewolf in London’ Remake Max Landis is Half Done Writing ‘American Werewolf in London’ Remake Max Landis on ‘An American Werewolf in London’ Remake, Practical & CGI David Naughton is “Excited” for the ‘American Werewolf’ Remake ‘An American Werewolf In London’ Remake With Max Landis Confirmed Son of John Landis Could Be Remaking ‘An American Werewolf in London’ Click to comment Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
