Is American Werewolf in London being remade by Max Landis, son of original director, John Landis?

Are we getting a remake/reboot of American Werewolf in London?

The answer isn’t quite clear it seems after random Twitter messages from screenwriter Max Landis, son of director John, the man behind the original 1980s classic: “There’s only one of my dad’s movies I’d ever be willing to try to remake and I’m already doing it,” said screenwriter Max Landis on Twitter this past Wednesday night.

Why do many think it’s An American Werewolf in London. Well just last month he tweeted: “Currently definitely writing (some codenames in here): moors; daytrippers; further; skunk.”

Bloody Disgusting first made the connection as Landis’ tweet confirmed a story they’d reportedly been looking into for some time. Other tweets from a few months before also suggested the writer was working on the property.

However, since the explosion of this news the younger Landis has come out and denied he’s remaking his dad’s classic horror/comedy.

I categorically deny any rumors about upcoming projects printed today,” he told i09 Gismodo.

So there you have it. Max Landis is remaking one of his dad’s movies but we don’t know which one. Here’s hoping it’s Blues Brothers 2000 which is awful!

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
