Andy Muschietti is set to jump from It to The Flash to The Howling.
One of director Joe Dante’s earliest successes was his screen adaptation of Gary Bradner’s novel, The Howling. The movie came out in 1981, and was eventually followed by sequels. Dante, of course, went on to lots of other things.
But it sounds like there’s fresh interest in The Howling. Andy Muschietti, who recently directed the pair of It movies based on the Stephen King source novel, has revealed that he’s working on a new adaptation of the original book. The new take on The Howling won’t be a remake of the first film, but instead looks set to explore the book a little more.
Netflix is said to have the rights to the book and thus is funding the film, although it’s not officially said so. But before Muschietti gets to that, there’s the small matter of the long in gestation The Flash movie on his docket.
More as we hear it, of course. But don’t expect to hear more for a while…
