Universal told AICN that Danny Elfman will be taking care of the score for the upcoming new version of The Wolfman, which stars Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt, Anthony Hopkins, and Hugo Weaving. It’s directed by Joe Johnston.
I’m not 100% sure what to expect in this announcement as the footage I saw didn’t really seem like an Elfman project, but I think so long as it’s not Beetlejuice-y, it could be good. Maybe more along the lines of Big Fish and Edward Scissorhands?
The movie is slated for an April 3, 2009 release.
