It’s Official: ‘AWIL’ Will Be Remade by Landis’s Son

Hollywood Reporter reported on Monday that An American Werewolf In London will be remade. Max Landis, the son of John Landis who directed and wrote the original Academy Award-winning AWIL released in 1981, reportedly will write and direct the remake for Universal.

AWIL remake has been on the radar for several years. Typically remakes do not fare out as well as the originals (Ghostbusters, Fright Night, RoboCop, The Wolfman, for example. I am definitely keeping my ears perked for updates as this remake does involve one of the most respectable cult classic werewolf movies of all time.
