Landis Sells “American Werewolf” Rights to Dimension; Remake In The Works

A. Quinton — Jun. 29th 2009

John Landis has sold the remake rights for An American Werewolf In London to Dimension Films, Bloody Disgusting reports. Dimension is the film company that brought us Grindhouse, Sin City and the Halloween and Scream film. As a werewolf fan the original is very close to my heart, but I had always assumed that for most people, AWIL was probably just an obscure horror /dark comedy with an abrupt ending. Apparently not! I’ve had a number of news submissions on this, and even Perez Hilton posted about it. No word yet on when /how they intend to bring this remake to life, but Dimension have taken on a huge responsibility if they think they’re going to one-up the definitive cinema werewolf transformation scene.
