The Wolf Man Gets a Girlfriend

CHUD today reports that 24-year-old British ingenue Emily Blunt has been cast in the role of Gwen Conliffe, love interest of Larry Talbot in Universal's remake of the 1941 classic The Wolf Man. Best known for her supporting role in last year's The Devil Wears Prada, and more recently for a part in the Steve Carell vehicle Dan in Real Life, Blunt is also the real-life love interest of wannabe-crooner Michael Buble.
Blunt will play alongside Benicio Del Toro in the title role, as well as Anthony Hopkins, set to play Talbot's father. It's also believed that in this new version, unlike in the original, Gwen will actually be Talbot's sister-in-law. The role of Gwen was originated in 1941 by B-movie starlet Evelyn Ankers (below).The news would seem to allay fears of the demise of the project--the script for which is
not yet finished--as a result of the current writers' strike.


Just wanted to take a second to thank Steve Biodrowski at Cinefantastastique, who made mention of The Vault of Horror three days ago in his web surfing report. Yes folks, the buzz is growing. And just think, you can say you were here at the beginning...
