  • The Wolfman is a 2010 American werewolf horror film directed by Joe Johnston. A remake of the 1941 film of the same name, the film retells the story of Lawrence Talbot who returns to his eerie English hometown of Blackmoor after his brother has been murdered by a "beast", forcing him to reunite with his estranged father, Sir John Talbot, meet his brother's grieving widow, Gwen Conliffe, and encounter the beast, whom he discovers to be a werewolf, who killed his brother, leaving Talbot cursed for every full moon but as events progress, Talbot's curse leads him to the true identity of the werewolf responsible for cursing him and murdering his brother. The film includes an ensemble cast featuring Benicio del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt, Hugo Weaving, and Geraldine Chaplin. The screenplay was written by Andrew Kevin Walker and David Self and features creature make-up effects by Ricker Baker. Acclaimed director Mark Romanek was originally attached to direct the film with the idea to "...infuse a balance of cinema in a popcorn movie scenario." However, creative disagreements between the studio forced him to depart from the project.
