Universal's remake of The Wolf Man is currently sans a director, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mark Romanek has left the production due to disputes over the final cost of the film. Although the film is budgeted at a not-unimpressive $100 million, Romanek was requesting more money. Since Universal is aiming for an audience-limiting R-rating for the film, his requests were denied. The studio is currently seeking a new director, but due to the Writer's Strike, anybody coming on to the production will be unable to do any rewrites to the script. They will have to work with the screenplay developed by Romanek and Sleepy Hollow scribe Andrew Kevin Walker as-is.

Stars Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt, as well as makeup artist Rick Baker, are still attached to the film. The Wolf Man follows a man (Del Toro) who returns home only to be bitten by a werewolf.
