An American Werewolf in London’s remake has a quick update from Mark Landis.

Though the remake of the legendary John Landi’s 1981 horror comedy An American Werewolf in London has been moving very slowly, gears started turning faster after Max joined in to work on the project last year and now the younger Landis reminds fans that the remake is still a go.

Speaking in an interview with Kevin Smith for IMDb, Landis not only reminded fans that he’s still interested in directing the remake, the writer of films like American Ultra and Victor Frankenstein is also working on the script for the new An American Werewolf in London.

“I’m going to write it, and I think I’m going to direct it. I like the script I wrote; you know, I’m halfway through it right now. I hope it turns out great.”

Though he’s been a screenwriter in a number of films, the younger Landis hasn’t had much directorial experience, and we wonder what Max would bring to the legacy of the remake of An American Werewolf in London. There must be a lot of pressure on Max knowing how the original film directed by his father was a critical success that gained a cult following after its release.

Though Landis did acknowledged that rumors had spread word that the remake film he was making would join Universal Pictures’ Dark Universe, the writer and director didn’t confirm any intent to sign on to the franchise – which is pretty understandable after The Mummy did poorly.

There’s no release date for An American Werewolf in London’s remake just yet, but we’ll keep everyone posted.
