Wolfman replacement directors

WolfMan.jpgThere are a couple of names being banded around for replacing Mark Romanek after he left the production of The Wolf Man, the film starring Benecio Del Toro in the remake of the iconic film, and the names are pretty new, but interesting none the less.

Breck Eisner and Matt Reeves are being touted, and although this is rumour it's erring on the side of truth. The big rumour, and the most worrying one is that Brett Ratner could be considered - frankly I think that's rubbish.

I mean that in both senses of the word, Brett Ratner is rubbish for the film and the suggestion is rubbish too. I really don't see that happening.

However the rumours of Breck Eisner or Matt Reeves come from a source from AICN through AITH. Now I think that it's fair to say the name of Matt Reeves has been leapt on because he's "in" at the moment. Having delivered a blistering Cloverfield studios are excited about putting him at the fore of projects.

Then there's Breck Eisner, a man who has really only has Sahara under his belt, and while that wasn't a great film it did have a strong sense of direction, I think it's fair to say the issues were more script wise than anything, and Clive Cussler might well agree with that. Interestingly Eisner is currently working on the pre-production of Creature from the Black Lagoon.

I'm not sure if either of these are right, but I could see Eisner getting the role more than anyone. Matt Reeves? Well he has Cloverfield 2 and The Invisible Woman now, although the script for Cloverfield 2 doesn't exist and nothing has started on the Invisible Woman.

I'm not sure about any of these early names, and while they may have been approached I'm not convinced either of them will end up in the final frame...of course they only have until the end of the week to chose someone for The Wolf Man, so maybe just...
