According to the LA Times, writer Fernley Phillips is in talks with the Weinstein Brothers to write their upcoming remake of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON. Phillips’ only produced screen credit to date is THE NUMBER 23 starring Jim Carrey. The Weinstein Company is expected to release the film under its Dimension Films label, which they usually reserve for genre pictures. They’ve brought Phillips on board for the purpose of bringing a more “modern spin” to the story. Are you a fan of the original? How does this strike you?
