In a pattern as inexorable as life, death, the movement of the moon around the Earth or the ability of ants to get where they’re not wanted, another Underworld film is on the way. Underworld: Next Generation is in pre-production and will star vampiric kick-puncher Kate Beckinsale. (more…)
I’ve seen a lot of chatter lately that indicates the werewolf connection in Bloodborne for PS4 is deeper than I wrote about last week, and in a gargantuan Kotaku post Patricia Hernandez catalogs the evidence. The conclusion: even though you’re killing werewolves in the game, you’re probably a werewolf yourself, too. (more…)
I’m excited at today’s announcement that seminal 90’s paranormal investigation series The X-Files is returning to Fox for a limited series. But I’m nervous, too, because if any of the new episodes resurrect and validate a long-debunked rumour, I’ll have no choice but to end Werewolf News. (more…)
If you’re like me and you haven’t seen a film in theatres for ages because movie theatres are terrible places filled with stupid noisy bad people, here’s a good reason to strap into your Social Anxiety Suit and go see Anchorman 2: it contains a scene in which Steve Carell and James Marsden fight a werewolf.

For several years now I’ve been hearing about Guardians of Luna, but my attempts to learn about it were continually rebuffed by the project’s Flash site. I’m a web developer. I… I don’t like Flash. But lately I’ve received enough email about it that last night I decided to give the site time to load so I could properly check it out, and hopefully answer three key questions: what is it, who made it, and how can I watch it?

A while back word was going around that Universal was looking to reboot their Wolfman franchise again after the disappointing performance of 2010’s remake. According to Moviehole’s exclusive (but presently un-cited) report, there’s a script in the works and it appears to be for an original film, rather than another remake.
Michael Tabb’s script is being rewritten and reworked to be an original film – almost a reboot of the classic Universal monster movie series. If anything, this new film – they’ve yet to decide on a title though I hear “Werewolf” is popular -will share a link to the original George Waggner film (from 1941) rather than Joe Johnston’s ill-fated 2009 remake. Maybe.
The Moviehole post goes on to mention that the studio is said to be talking to prospective directors, and that casting will be starting soon in advance of an autumn shooting schedule.
The Internet seems really excited about this information, but there’s not much new meat on this bone, other than the name of the screenwriter and the fact that Universal is actually thinking about doing that thing they said they were going to do. I’ve never seen anything written by Michael Tabb so I don’t have an opinion on his attachment to the project. It’s unclear to me whether Universal is doing a film “inspired” by the original 1941 Wolfman or if Tabb is writing an original film to take the whole franchise in a new direction, and until somebody asks him “hey, so what are you actually doing?” and he provides an answer, I don’t think there’s much reason to get giddy about this. Yet.
Judging by the excitement in my inbox this is important enough to mention, although I feel like I’m succumbing to peer pressure. Musician Kylie Minogue has what sounds like a minor role in everybody’s favourite werewolf lesbian romance movie, Jack and Diane. People who care how pop stars look were apparently very upset at her appearance in a series of off-set photos, but then were relieved (and titillated) when it was revealed that she was just “in costume” for her role as a lady who likes other ladies. I was going to include one of those photos with this post, but then I remembered this site isn’t TMZ or Perez Hilton. Wanna know what she looks like? Just do a Google image search for her, then imagine she has some fake tattoos on her arms and hasn’t washed her hair in three days.
According to Deadline’s TV Editor Nellie Andreeva, MTV has officially ordered Teen Wolf to series. Word is that MTV asked for 12 episodes, which is a pretty confident move on their part. Get ready for the wacky hijinks of high school dork Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) as he recovers from a wolf attack and learns about his amazing new powers, which include the ability to… “attract girls”? Oh for fuck’s sake. I need to stop kidding myself. This is going to be “Big Wolf on Campus” but with designer clothes and product placement, isn’t it.
