Ryan Gosling to Play Wolfman

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

Fresh news from Hollywood is that Ryan Gosling is rumored to be the next star to play Wolfman. Rumor has it the Notebook star will take on the famous character in Universal's next film from their monster universe. It will be his first time stepping into the role of a supernatural nature.  It is also reported that Gosling was the individual to pitch the concept for the movie. His concept guided the screenwriters, who happen to be Orange Is the New Black writers Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo. Ryan Gosling is well known to be a fan of the classic Universal horror films, so that’s a good sign. Because the last two films were just awful adaptations. The Mummy bored me(but mummy movies have always bored me), and the Invisible Man was a good movie. BUT only if named something else. 


At this moment, no director has been chosen to lead the film, but Universal is considering numerous options. The last film to tackle the hairy monster was 2010 The Wolfman, which starred Benicio del Toro, with Anthony Hopkins, Emma Blunt, and Hugo Weaving. While the 2010 film followed the origin story of the werewolf, this new adaptation is believed to be styled after a more modern take on the villain. 


Unfortunately, fans will likely have to wait some time before they can see this movie on the big screen. And we could and most likely see more changes because Hollywood changes actors, directors, etc like the average person changes socks.  Until the premiere of the Wolfman film, fans will just have to get their fill of Universal's monsters by rewatching the classics. Either Universal or Hammer.
