With the revival of the vampire and zombie, the werewolf has not received enough serious attention, outside of a few outliers such as Neil Marshall’s Dog Soldiers. From a purely horror perspective, some could say there’s little to fear from the hairiest member of the horror movie monsters. But taken into context, the zombie is slow-moving and the vampire has been turned into a sexy heartthrob for tween gazers. Sure, the werewolf looks like an overgrown dog but you try telling that to the monsters from Joe Dante’s cult classic The Howling and see if you walk away in one piece. Hollywood needs to bring the werewolf back with style and MTV’s Teen Wolf and Taylor Lautner in Twilight don’t count.

As part of a much needed revival, Emaji Entertainment has nabbed the rights to remake Joe Dante’s 1981 horror feature as part of a series that will see several well-known properties remade. Recently, the studio announced a Strangeland remake that will see Dee Snider returning as the character Captain Howdy. And although we feel that a remake to The Howling will most likely displease the horror gods, we’re not against the idea of seeing the werewolf making a return. If nothing else, the film should feature at least one good scene showing the full moon transformation that is sure to get more viewers on the werewolf bandwagon.

As you would guess, the film is still in the early stages of production, which means details on the script and director are being kept quiet until everything is official. From the sound of everything, Emaji will stick as closely to the original low-budget production value of the first film as possible. Audiences can expect to see the typical horror remake when this one gets released. But if you’re in the audience of horror fans looking to see someone getting mauled by a group of beasts, this should be right up your alley. We can expect to hear more from this feature as production gets underway.

Joe Manganiello will appear in Netflix’s upcoming Pee-wee Herman film.

Pee-wee’s Big Holiday will follow Herman as he goes on his first-ever vacation, which turns out to be an epic journey.

Reubens hailed Manganiello as being “tremendously talented” in a statement issued to Deadline today (April 8).

“I am so glad we are finally going to get to work together. This totally makes up for being cut out of Magic Mike and Magic Mike 2,” Reubens joked.

Manganiello returned Reubens’s compliments by referring to the Pee-wee Herman creator as “one of the great comic geniuses” of the era.

“Growing up, my Saturday mornings were all about Pee-wee Herman,” added Manganiello. “I saw everything he did. I can’t believe that I’m going to get to share scenes with one of the iconic figures of my childhood.”

Manganiello’s former True Blood co-star Tara Buck was previously confirmed to be starring in the comedy.

Pee-wee’s Big Holiday will premiere on Netflix in all of its territories worldwide.

Here’s some info on a new show that should be right up our alley! South of Hell is slated to be an eight-part horror thriller starring Mena Suvari as a demon hunter for hire.

South of Hell

Horror gurus Eli Roth (Hostel) and Jason Blum (Sinister) are exec producing the show, which has been penned by James Manos (The Shield).

Set in South Carolina, the series follows Maria Abascal (Suvari), a demon hunter for hire. Her work, however, means she has her own inner demon in the shape of Abigail, who feeds on the energy of the monsters she pursues.

The drama is for WE tv, the US cable channel that is moving into drama.

Roth directed the first of the eight one-hour episodes and the series will debut on WE tv later this year. US producer and distributor Sonar is selling South of Hell internationally and will be marketing the show in Cannes.

“It is the first pairing of horror masters Eli Roth and Jason Blum and it is a nice blend of genres, with a lot of thriller elements and a lot in there for horror fans,” says Jenna Glazier, Sonar’s senior VP, television.

AMC Networks channel WE tv is has a female skew, and with its strong female lead, South of Hell will appeal to women viewers. However, there is also a strong male character of note in David (Zachary Booth), the demon-hunting brother of Maria. CSI actor Bill Irwin plays the demon slayers’ father.

The series embodies the new form of high-end serialised TV drama, Glazier says. “It has a lot of film pedigree behind it with Mena Suvari, Eli Roth and Jason Blum. It was shot on location in Charleston, and that southern element figures heavily; it is a character in the series.

“South of Hell definitely pushes the envelope with storytelling, and has horror, and moments that are very suspenseful. It is a scary, thrilling and visually stunning series.

She adds: “We’ll have Mena Suvari at MIPTV and she embodies the series.”

A&E is ready to Let the Right One In.

The network is teaming with Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis and actor-screenwriter Brandon Boyce to adapt the Swedish vampire story, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
A&E landed the story, about a bullied teen boy who befriends a young female vampire — based on the best-selling Swedish book by John Ajvide Lindqvist that was subsequently adapted into the critically acclaimed 2008 movie directed by Tomas Alfredson — following a bidding war with Showtime.

The drama follows the boy and female vampire, who lives in secrecy with her mysterious guardian. When a series of strange murders pops up in their small Vermont town, it attracts the attention of a federal marshal with a mysterious past of his own.

The drama, which is in the development stage, is being produced in- house via A+E Studios and Marty Adelstein’s and Becky Clements’ (Teen Wolf, Aquarius) Tomorrow Studios. Davis, Boyce, Adelstein, Clements and Simon Oakes will executive produce. The property was optioned from Hammer Films Productions, which produced the 2010 English-language film adaptation Let Me In.

For Boyce, Let the Right One In comes after a recurring role on MTV’s werewolf remake Teen Wolf, in which he played Dr. Vandenburg for showrunner Davis. His credits include the screenplays for Apt Pupil and Wicker Park. He recently also broke through as a novelist with his debut title, period Western Here By the Bloods, bowing as the first of a three-book deal with Kensington Publishing. Boyce is repped by ICM Partners, Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment and Bloom Hergott.
Davis, meanwhile, has steered MTV’s Teen Wolf remake for four seasons. Let the Right One In marks his latest genre remake after starting his career with a script that ultimately became CBS’ Criminal Minds. He’s repped by WME, Magnet Management and Jackoway Tyerman.

For A&E, Let the Right One In — a foreign hit that grossed $9.1 million internationally on its way to a worldwide gross of $11.2 million — comes as the network’s original scripted roster consists of two remakes: long-running Bates Motel (based on Psycho) and a reboot of French zombie drama The Returned, both from Carlton Cuse, and the upcoming fourth season of CBS import Unforgettable.

Remakes have been all the rage this development season, with film-to-TV adaptations earning pilot orders at the broadcast networks this season, including Rush Hour (CBS), Problem Child (NBC), Uncle Buck (ABC) and more.

A&E’s Let the Right One In marks the second time the book has been translated for U.S. audiences. Matt Reeves rebooted the film with Chloe Grace Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee in 2010 as Let Me In, which earned $24.1 million worldwide (evenly split between domestic and foreign audiences). The 2008 film was wildly praised, earning a BAFTA nomination as best film not in English, in addition to wins from critics groups in Boston, Chicago, Florida, Toronto and several others.
