Max Landis Completes his An American Werewolf in London Script

Posted on: December 16th, 2017

We’ve known for a while that Max Landis is scripting a remake of his father John’s horror-comedy benchmark An American Werewolf in London, although we’re still no closer to knowing when (and indeed if) we’ll see it move into production. He recently promised fans: “I’m going to do my best to make it great” however, and the ball is at least still in motion, with Landis (pictured) tweeting on Monday that the script is now complete.

“Finishing my first draft of An American Werewolf In London today,” he wrote, adding, “Took me way longer than usual because every time I opened the Final Draft file my laptop would slam closed under the weight of my father’s expectations.”

Soon after Landis, in answering a question from a fan, revealed one of the key points of the 1981 original which he delves further into in his script. Landis was asked the following:
“It seems like the villagers dispatch the werewolf pretty easily once they decide to go out after Jack and David…why did they never do it before? Did they know the guy who was the wolf?”

And his reply came:
“Answering this question and the nature of the village’s role in the plot in the second and third act as of now are the biggest changes I’ve made to the original structure. I always wondered about that Pentagram. Doing some fun stuff.”

It certainly sounds as though Landis is fully invested in this, and it’ll be interesting to see what happens next with the project.
