Still unsure on Hopkins’ involvement
MTV recently snared a wolf, well, future Wolfman Benicio Del Toro to talk to him further about his upcoming turn in Universal’s remake.
Del Toro seems psyched for the project to be directed by Mark Romanek. “We’re trying to go back to the original. There’s something very nostalgic about it for me. I loved all those monsters when I was a kid,” he said.
Asked if, as rumored, Anthony Hopkins is on board as well Del Toro said, “I think so,” before adding that the final deals haven’t been closed nor has a starting date been determined. Excitedly Del Toro said, “I have never done a horror film.” He quickly added with a laugh, “maybe a lot of my films already are horror films.”
