Months after Universal successfully relaunched its monster universe with Elisabeth Moss's `The Invisible Man,` the studio is pushing ahead for `Wolfman` - which is being developed as a starring vehicle for Ryan Gosling - to be the next movie based on its catalog of iconic creatures.
Sources revealed that executives at Universal have been meeting with directors over the past month and could be making a decision soon on who will take the reins behind the camera. While there is no frontrunner at the time, Cory Finley, who recently received rave reviews for directing HBO's drama `Bad Education` with Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney, is said to be in the mix for the job.
Gosling's take fell in line with the studio's new vision for its monster movies. Universal had originally planned on creating an interconnected universe with its vast catalog of monster IP. However, the studio reassessed after `The Mummy` with Tom Cruise misfired, and decided to move forward with filmmaker-driven projects based on the monsters' legacies, focusing on what made the characters endure over time.
Timing for `Wolfman` is also in question. While it seems to be in good position to get off the ground, an exact production start date is still up in the air. Besides the fact that Gosling himself would have to close a deal to star, he is also currently set to lead an untitled astronaut film at MGM. That movie, an adaptation of `The Martian` author Andy Weir's upcoming novel, recently hired Phil Lord and Chris Miller to direct.
