CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Smash Pictures has announced that it will be parodying the classic 1981 John Landis film An American Werewolf in London in October. Casting for the movie commences next month.
“There’s definitely some erotic fixation on werewolfs and vampires lately. It’s really the Twilight craze,” Smash Pictures Vice President Stuart Wall told AVN. “We have big things in store for this movie—especially the effects for the transformation from human to werewolf.”
Jim Powers is set to direct the movie for Smash Pictures.
On the Hollywood side, there’s been news for years that Harvey and Bob Weinstein’s Dimension Films is working on a remake after Landis optioned the rights. With the movie not expected to be released to 2014, fans of the original can get their hands on Smash’s decidedly sexy version in January 2012.
