Wolfman At Bay

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 4th, 2009

Recall how earlier I’d written that this could be a big year for Werewolves, capped off by Benicio Del Toro starring in The Wolfman, due out November 6, 2009? Well, forget that.

Brian Warmoth, writing at Twitter-Wood, MTV Movie Blog, passes this along from Richard Kelly, Writer/Director (Donnie Darko, Southland Tales):

“Wolfman moved to February, opening up a slot – and we won’t be competing with Saturday Halloween (and Michael Jackson doc).”

Looks like all bets are off for this being a great Werewolf year. Back to the giant snakes for ’09, I guess.

Maleva: “Whoever is bitten by a werewolf and lives becomes a werewolf himself.”
Larry Talbot: “Ah, don’t hand me that. You’re just wasting your time.”
Maleva: “The wolf bit you, didn’t he?”
Larry Talbot: “Yeah. Yeah he did!”

Oh well, there’s always good Werewolf reading available. Wink, wink.

The republished The Book of Werewolves by Sabine Baring-Gould is a new classic in hardback from the “Loren Coleman Presents” series from Cosimo Books.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Hi Loren & Everyone Else!

    I totally disagree that this will be a slow year for Werewolves.

    We are quickly approaching the 30th Anniversary of the greatest werewolf movie ever made. Of course I am talking about An American Werewolf In London. And to help celebrate this occassion, I am very honored to be directing the very first stage production of this classic tale for Freeport Community Players in Freeport, Maine!

    The show is based on the BBC Radio play version of the movie. It is produced with special arrangement and permission from Writer/Director John Landis and BBC Production Writer/Director Dirk Maggs!

    Here is the facebook link for the auditions which are Aug 16th & 17th in the Freeport Performing Arts Center.

    Looking forward to seeing the movie.

    Personally I prefer the “Ginger Snaps” movies myself.

    But I give Landis due respect.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…

    The Book Of Werewolves is the BEST historic tome ever written on the topic.

  4. Dan Gannon responds:

    A werewolf character has a leading role in a new series on BBC, “Being Human.” (The other two leading characters are a vampire, and a ghost.) It’s already become one of my favorites. Fun stuff.
