The journey of bringing Universal Studio's classic werewolf tale "The Wolfman" back to the big screen has been long and difficult. A director switch weeks before filming was to begin, an expensive decision to add more CG and an extensive reshoot process have made many think this is one tale that couldn't end with a happy ending.
That may not be the case.
Word inadvertently leaked last week that two experienced editors, Mark Goldblatt and three-time Oscar-winner Walter Murch ("The English Patient"), had come on board to rework the film. Whatever the duo has done seems to have done wonders. HitFix has learned that two new cuts were recently tested and surprisingly the longer one played very well with audiences.
Moviegoers will be able to decide whether "The Wolfman" truly haunts again when the picture opens nationwide on Feb. 10.
