416 MrDudeWheresMyCar I'm open to some remakes, but I just don't really understand what is going to be accomplished with a remake of American Werewolf in London. People are too attached to it so it's never going to be considered better than the original and the first movie has practical effects that are still pretty incredible today.
118 TerminallyCapriSun ALWAYS look for the source link. >“I advised him not to do it,” John Landis told [Collider]( about the remake I mean, at least Indiewire's opinion piece mostly represents Landis's sentiment accurately, but Jesus Christ they wrote an entire article based on literally *one* quote from an entire wide ranging interview: >**LANDIS:** Truthfully, I’ve not seen his script. I advised him not to do it. I think he’s putting himself in a bad position. My son is brilliant, he really is, and he wants to do it. So what am I going to say? No? I know it won’t be as bad as An American Werewolf In Paris, which was shit. So, I don’t know. He’s a great writer. He’s been writing since he was 7. He wrote a whole series of scripts about these characters called Yelp and Dopey, two dumb dogs, when he was under ten. They were so funny. That's all he said on the subject.
156 satanicpuppy Why would you *need* to remake it? Just do a new riff on werewolves. There have been plenty of good ones, and there is plenty of room for more. You're not going to recapture the moment that made *American Werewolf in London* great...The shitty Paris remake should have proven that.
162 Uptomyknees Indiewire misrepresents what my father said here.
202 JohnTyler-Flounder Listen to your dad, Max.
74 Tevesh_CKP What's sad is this movie is over 30 years old and it is still the best Werewolf movie. There is a reason why Werewolves are perceived as lame monsters when they're just a Hulk variant: Vampires get all the cool movies. Hell, most of the time the boss monster is a Vampire instead of a Werewolf.
25 Crazyripps Watched it for the first time a few months back and it holds up so well and is easily the best werewolf movie.
26 Pop_Quiz_Hot_Shot I feel like the best person to remake it would be his son right? Max has to know that you can't just shot for shot remake the original. His work on Dirk Gently shows that he's willing to work around the source material and craft a story that takes the themes and characters from the books and makes it into something new and different but still loyal to its source. I trust you /u/uptomyknees
61 EdwinaBackinbowl Just call it American Werewolf. Set it in the US. Have the initial attack in the UK if need be. Do a modern werewolf story, using the rules of AAWiL, set in an urban US environment. Not out in a country town. Not in some artificially restricted environment. Have a large US city terrorized by a fucking werewolf. That's something that hasn't been done yet. We got London and that crazy last rampage. Now bring it home.
7 briandt75 The original barely dates itself, and the true horror of the film are those stunning practical effects. They'll never be able to make a "better" version, and would be stupid to try, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least.
29 CMORGLAS If Universal got their heads out of their asses and set the Dark Universe in the 19th Century, they could get a good trilogy out of an "Irish Werewolf in America." In Celtic Mythology, the Faoladh is seen more as a Guardian than a Berserker, particularly towards Children, the Sick, and Homeless. First Film, is your basic origin story, where the Werewolf is trying to raise enough money during the Potato Famine in order to bring their family to America. Second Film, Faoladh and their family makes it to America, but find themselves having to fight the Know-Nothing Party and other Anti-Immigrant Thugs. Final Film, Faoladh enlists to serve in the Union during the Civil War. Bada-Bing-Bada-Boom, Werewolf Trilogy with a new twist.
