AICN received a phone call from someone at Universal who told them that Danny Elfman, composer of Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Wanted and Spider-Man, will be composing the score for The Wolfman.
The movie is set in Victorian England and has a cast consisting of Benicio del Toro, Emily Blunt, Hugo Weaving and Anthony Hopkins. From the Comic Con footage that has now been removed from the face of the internet, the movie looks dark and Gothic, so we can expect that sort of tone with the music. I think in a movie like The Wolfman the music is vital, as it helps create the atmosphere. We can’t have the Wolfman ripping people to shreds with a merry tune in the background. It has to be dark and vicious!
