Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro is set to play a classic movie monster in the big screen remake of THE WOLF MAN.
The Sin City actor will star in and co-produce the new version of the horror film.
Like the original film, which starred Lon Chaney Jr, the remake will be set in Victorian England.
Se7en writer Andrew Kevin Walker has started working on the script for the film.
Shooting is scheduled to begin early next year (07), once Del Toro completes work on the Che Guevara biopic GUERILLA.
The film will be released in 2008.
