After the box office success and the critical acclaim for The Invisible Man, Universal are pushing ahead with their new “monster features” and Variety have broken some pretty big news tonight.

It’s been announced that Ryan Gosling is to become the next “Wolfman” in what is a pretty big coup for the studio who last took a stab at this in 2010 when Joe Johnston directed The Wolf Man which starred Benicio del Toro.

Despite some decent effects, the film was a box office dud!

No announcement of a director this time but HBO’s “Bad Education” helmer Corey Finley is the rumoured target.
