!! OMG, another Universal Monster comes to TV: ‘Wolfman’ to howl for NBC? !!

It looks as if all the networks are hopping on the horror bandwagon these days. First DRACULA came to TV and now, another famous classic Universal Monster is making his way to television. According to Deadline:

The upcoming series will take its cue from the not-so-bad 2010 WOLFMAN redo starring Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins and Emily Blunt. Its synopsis however, is without any defining characteristics that would link it to such. Instead, it sounds like the general outline of both THE WOLFMAN 2010 and the original, classic THE WOLF MAN (1941); the site writes, “It centers on Lawrence Talbot, who is afflicted by an ancient curse…” Considering the alterations I hear DRACULA is having fun with and the general longer form storytelling and diversions that televisions allows, it seems hard to expect any direct correlation other than the Talbot name and traditional story. The most significant connection seems to be the carrying over of producer Scott Stuber.

There is not set yet for the series, though it’s tied to NBC. Are you excited to see The Wolfman take TV?
