Firstly, it was announced that Mark Romanek has dropped out as director of Universal's Wolf Man remake. Reportedly, Romanek left the project last night due to "creative differences," leaving Universal to pick up the pieces.
Universal is claiming that the project is in good shape, and that a new director will be found right away. They're also saying that a new writer will be brought in to retool the script as soon as the writers' strike is resolved.
Just when it looked like the most promising horror movie of 2009 was back on track, this happens. We can only speculate as to what constituted the creative differences, or whether the announced February 18 start date still stands.
