John Landis' 1981 movie AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON is considered a classic and rightfully so. It contains one of the most brilliant werewolf transformation scenes to ever have been captured on film. Rick Baker's creative genius was exercised in order to pull of the ordeal resulting in practical effects heaven.

We have just learned that Max Landis, son of original director John Landis will be writing and directing the remake of AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON.

Universal Pictures is developing the project along with Landis who has some writing credits to his name but only one feature length directing credit with last year's ME HIM HER.

THE WALKING DEAD creator Robert Kirkman will be producing the AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON remake, along with David Albert, Todd Garner, and Matt Smith.

Father John Landis will executive produce, along with Andy Trapani.

Original synopsis:

"David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne), two American college students, are backpacking through Britain when a large wolf attacks them. David survives with a bite, but Jack is brutally killed. As David heals in the hospital, he's plagued by violent nightmares of his mutilated friend, who warns David that he is becoming a werewolf. When David discovers the horrible truth, he contemplates committing suicide before the next full moon causes him to transform from man to murderous beast."

We will continue to bring you more on the remake of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON as we hear it.
