IT Director Andy Muschietti Reportedly Working On A Remake Of THE HOWLING For Netflix

Some potentially huge news for horror fans here, as a new report is claiming that IT and IT: Chapter 2 director Andrés Muschietti is set to helm a remake of werewolf classic The Howling for Netflix...

IT director Andy Muschietti previously expressed a desire to develop a new take on horror classic The Howling, and it looks like he's going to get his chance.

According to That Hashtag Show, the filmmaker will helm a remake of Joe Dante's 1981 werewolf movie, which was loosely based on a novel of the same name by Gary Brandner, for Netflix. No other details were provided, but Muchietti is expected to get working on the film when he wraps production on The Flash (more on that later) for Warner Bros.

The original starred Dee Wallace (ET, Cujo) as a woman who is sent to a mysterious colony by her therapist after a terrifying encounter with a serial killer, only to discover that some of the other patients get a little hairier when there's a full moon. The plot differed signifucantly from the book in many ways, so it'll be interesting to see if this new version will be a more direct adaptation.
