‘The Walking Dead’s’ David Albert and Robert Kirkman Are Remaking ‘An American Werewolf in London’


Deadline reports that the next cult-horror-comedy-you-didn’t-know-you-needed-another-version-of-and-probably-following-finding-out-that-you’ll-indeed-be-getting-another-still-won’t-really-want-but-will-still-see-to-satisfy-a-morbid-curiousity-about-the-regurgitating-of-something-comfortably-familiar is a remake of John Landis’ An American Werewolf in London; Landis and Anthony Waller (who directed the film’s sort-of sequel, An American Werewolf in Paris) struck a deal with Universal Pictures for this thing — which is actually written by and will seemingly be directed by Landis’ son, Max Landis — to come to be. It’s being produced by The Walking Dead executive producer David Albert, alongside the comic book writer who provided that series’ source material (and also served as an EP), Robert Kirkman.

The original film followed two young Americans (and then, rather quickly, one) played by David Naughton and Griffin Dunne, in the transformative aftermath of their getting attacked by a werewolf while hiking in England.
