[Update: Universal has contacted us to confirm that there are no two competing cuts of Wolfman. According to the film's producer, "The movie's been done for a while. We finished the cut, and obviously we are now mixing and scoring and putting in our final effects right now, but the movie's been finished. The concept of having two competing cuts and the studio having their own editing room and all that simply not true." AICN has more details as well. The original article follows.]
There’s not long now to make any alterations, and even less time to test screen them, but The Playlist are reporting that yet another editor has been brought on to recut The Wolfman, street date February 12th. According to them, Walter Murch and Mark Goldblatt are done with their work on the picture and currently, two edit bays are lit up with director Joe Johnston in one and Universal production president Donna Langely and an un-named editor grinding away in the other. Who is this mystery cutter?
Troma might have the zombie chickens but it sounds like Universal have the lycanthropic turkey. Need I remind you that once upon a time Mark Romanek was going to direct this film? What a loss.
