Universal Pictures announced In March 2006 that they are a remake of the film The Wolf Man 1941 would make. Benicio Del Toro, a big fan of the original movie and a collector of Wolf Man memorabilia, got the lead role. Andrew Kevin Walker wrote the screenplay, while Del Toro films like Werewolf of London (1935) and The Curse of The Werewolf (1961) used as a source of inspiration.
In February 2007, Mark Romanek on board to film to the project. The film was at that time scheduled for november 2008. In september 2007, the premiere postponed until early 2009. In January 2008, Romanek it on because of "creative differences", though some sources claim that he was not satisfied with the film budget. Brett Ratner became the largest contender to Romanek on to follow, but the movie studio also spoke with other directors such as Frank Darabont, James Mangoldand Joe Johnston . On 3 February 2008, passed the torch to Johnston. Johnston enlisted the help of David Self to rewrite the screenplay. The premiere was now shifted to 2010.
From March to June 2008 found the recordings in the United Kingdom. The recordings mainly went by in the Pinewood Studios. The makeup of the protagonist was provided by Rick Baker, who is a makeup artist was because as a young boy he was inspired by films such as The Wolf Man. His job to Del Toro into a werewolf to conjure, was not simply because Del Toro is naturally very hairy. Because of this there is little leeway to experiment. "The step of Benicio Del Toro into a werewolf is not great," said Baker. It took three hours to the makeup to apply and an hour to get it back to remove.
