Prisoners screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski has reportedly come aboard to write the script, although no details were given about how this classic character will be rebooted. Universal's Dracula Untold was confirmed last month to be the first in this series. Although it wasn't initially envisioned as a part of the franchise, a prologue scene that showed Luke Evans' title character in a modern-day market is what helps kick off this universe.
The Untitled Mummy Reboot will fully launch the franchise, arriving in theaters June 24, 2016, with the studio announcing last month that an unspecified monster movie will hit theaters on April 21, 2017. It isn't known if The Wolf Man or another project will occupy this date yet.
The Wolf Man franchise was launched in 1941 with Lon Chaney Jr. playing the title character, which spawned Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943), House of Frankenstein (1944), House of Dracula (1945) and Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948). Universal also tried rebooting the property in 2010 with The Wolfman starring Benicio Del Toro.
Universal has also hired Fargo TV series creator Noah Hawley to write the script for another monster movie. Before this monster franchise was announced this summer, the studio had been developing a Van Helsing reboot, but it hasn't been confirmed if this is part of the new monster universe or not.
