Dimension Films has secured the rights to remake director John Landis’ infamous 1981 black comedy horror An American Werewolf In London. Landis will serve as executive producer on the project.
According to The Hollywood Reporter , "No writer or director is on board but Dimension and the producers hope to make an elevated genre picture that will keep the fun comedy elements of the original as it seeks to be relevant to contemporary audiences."
Dimension is making a name for itself relaunching old horror franchises. It will release Halloween II in August and is also developing a remake of Hellraiser.
