News Max Landis on ‘An American Werewolf in London’ Remake, Practical & CGI Published 3 years ago on June 27, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet It’s been around seven months since we last heard anything on Max Landis’ An American Werewolf In London remake, which is going to be a modern take on his fathers classic 1981 comedy horror film. As previously reported, The Walking Dead‘s David Albert and Robert Kirkman are attached to produce, alongside executive producer John Landis. Landis was a recent guest on the The Rugged Man podcast Show, where he openly spoke about using both practical effects and CGI in An American Werewolf in London, and revealed he is currently writing it. Landis on practical effects and CGI: “The thing I would do with CGI, were I directing this film, would be leg movement, and I would have the entire wolf’s face, back and body be practical, and then I would fully CGI the legs for organic movements. If you remake American Werewolf and the transformation scene isn’t practical, you have fu*ked up.” Landis on making the film: “We’ll see if I can do it. We’ll see if I can pull it off. We’ll see if they even make it. My goal is I feel like all of the best remakes focus on one thing in the original movie, take a lot of the images of the original and then remix that really tightly. With American Werewolf I’m doing that, but I’m also just gonna try and do American Werewolf as best I can. We’ll see. I can’t make no promises.” Sounds like Max has his own ideas in mind on how to go about remaking the film. What do you guys think? If the film gets a green light to go ahead, we just hope for a respectful take on the original film. You can watch the entire podcast below.
