The Wolfman Coming From Universal

Universal Pictures is planning a "universe" of films based on their collection of monsters with the first being The Mummy scheduled to hit theaters in 2016 to kick off the shared universe.  Now Deadline is reporting that screen writers have been hired to bring The Wolfman to screens next possibly in 2017 or late 2016, which would be the 75th Anniversary of the original film starring Lon Chaney.  Universal attempted a Wolfman reboot in 2010 that didn't go over so well and The Mummy film has no connection with the terrible Brendan Frasier flicks from several years ago.  Universal's monsters universe could be a really cool thing if done correctly over the next several years.
