In news for a film that could be considered dead in the water already, the site and online marketing campaign for Universal’s upcoming The Wolfman has gone live. The film has been bounced around more times than the Watchmen property back in the mid 90’s, and doesn’t look like it’s for the better.
Production began back in 2006 (which is now nearly 4 years ago) when Universal announced that Benicio Del Toro would be taking on the titular role. A year later, a list of names that included Mark Romenek, Brett Ratner, Frank Darabont, and Martin Campbell were at one point attached to the project, all falling off and leaving way for Joe Johnston (Jumanji, The Rocketeer) to take the helm in early 2008.
From there, the project was bumped from it’s original release date twice, due to reshoots and tweaks, with a final release date of February 12, 2010. The site includes some nice features, including Twitter integration, a full moon calendar, and an interesting history of Universal Monsters.
Check out the site, and be prepared for the film (and supposed Universal attraction to follow) hitting theaters on February 12.
