Yet another classic 80’s film is about to get re-made, but this time round there’s an interesting twist.

This remake is going to be written and directed by the son of the guy who made the original!

Remember AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON? A brilliant 1981 werewolf film that had the perfect blend of horror and comedy, and won an Academy Award for Rick Baker’s amazing werewolf transformation effects. In the original film, two American college students go backpacking in the North York Moors when they are attacked. One of them is killed and the other is turned into a werewolf, who then goes on a killing spree in London.

Well, John Landis did the original (he was the guy behind movies like THE BLUES BROS, ANIMAL HOUSE and TRADING PLACES), and now his son, Max Landis, will be doing the remake, with his dad serving as executive producer on the film.
