Producers Joel Kastelberg and Moonstone Entertainment’s Etchie Stroh are re-launching the “Howling” franchise as The Howling: Reborn. Variety says that former studio marketing executive Joe Nimziki will make his feature directorial debut from his own script.
The film is scheduled to start shooting in February for a Halloween release, with plot details under wraps.
Directed by Joe Dante, The Howling was released in 1981 and spawned six sequels. Dee Wallace-Stone starred as a news anchor stalked by a serial killer who turns out to be a werewolf.
Steve Lane and Bob Pringle, who served as executive producers on the original, will also executive produce The Howling: Reborn.
