Hollywood operates in trends..Case in point:
Producers Joel Kastelberg and Etchie Stroh will reboot the The Howling franchise with "The Howling: Reborn" reports Variety.
Joe Dante directed the 1981 original that starred Dee Wallace and itelf spawned six sequels.
Story details on the remake/reboot are being kept under wraps. Joe Nimziki makes his feature film directorial debut from his own script.
Shooting kicks off in February for a release next Halloween.
The original pic is a fun and yes imperfect film-- limited mostly by budget and ultimately overshadowed by the '81 wolf comedy, An American Werewolf in London.
My problem with this particular remake plan though has more to do with the fact that Hollywood's got New Moon making a mint in theaters right now, The Wolfman on the way in February of 2010 and now this project.
Vampires are everywhere and now it's time for werewolves to saturate the entertainment landscape.
