Joe Johnston film plagued with reshoots?
In yesterday’s news item, I speculated that recent additional shooting has affected the film. Well, this morning I woke up to a few e-mails from insiders informing me of a few details that should be taken as rumor for right now until I dig further. I will say, however, these embellish on other things I’ve heard.
One tipster says Universal has sunk nearly $10-30 million into re-shoots in England. Much of the scenes had to do with the full Wolfman makeup because it wasn’t “working out” and “was too much like the original” Chaney makeup. Another writer tells me Rick Baker was brought back in to direct practical transformation work because the CGI, again, wasn’t working.
Honestly, I’m hoping the reason for the delay is the latter and I can get a statement from the studio and/or filmmakers.
