Last year The Wolfman was pushed back from April to November, which was a good move and it proved that Universal had some confidence in it by giving it a better date. With the extra time it seems they have decided to go back and add more action to the film.
From Dark Horizons:
Vic Armstrong, the legendary stuntman, stunt coordinator and second unit director of everything from James Bond to Indiana Jones, appeared this past Saturday at the British Film Institute’s BFI Bond Weekender event celebrating the late 007 franchise producer Cubby Brocolli’s 100th birthday.
In attendance was ‘Glenn’ who got in touch and sent along this report of one little factoid that Armstrong let slip:
“He was mostly talking his work with the Bond franchise but he mentioned he’d just come from the set of ‘The Wolf Man’ at Pinewood Studios shooting some new action scene that was being added to the film.
He was very vague, he didn’t say what capacity (if any?) he was serving on the project but did say the crew were working six day weeks on this sequence.
He described the scene as a fight scene between two werewolves involving a fair amount of CG with them going up the walls and other bits of business, and that they had to marry it up to scenes shot earlier”
So far we haven’t had much from this, apart from a blurry trailer from Comic Con and a poster. Hopefully they will finish up these action scenes and present them to us in the form of a trailer. My only fear with The Wolfman is that they may go overboard with all of this CG. I’m sure most of us saw Van Helsing and if we get anything like that I will be disappointed.
