To date, Benicio Del Toro has been cast in the starring royal of Larry Talbot, with Sir Anthony Hopkins playing Talbot's father (a role originated by Claude Rains) and Emily Blunt as the female lead. Make-up effects will be handled by the master himself, Rick Baker, who follows in the footsteps of the legendary Jack Pierce (seen here applying the original iconic get-up to Lon Chaney Jr.)
Depite the glut of horror remakes being put out right now, this is one project that I--and I think most other fans--continue to be very intrigued with. The big question is, how were they able to get this project off the ground again when it had previously been reported that the script was unfinished? Hmmm...is it possible that Baker might not be the only person on this project applying scabs?
