Ryan Gosling to Play 'Wolfman' in New Movie for Universal's Monsters Universe

Ryan Gosling will be playing the title role in the upcoming movie Wolfman, which will be part of Universal’s Monsters Universe.

The studio has planned an entire film franchise set in the Monsters Universe and it was launched with Tom Cruise‘s The Mummy, but it was a box office disappointment and it seemed that Universal abandoned plans to expand the universe.

Elisabeth MossThe Invisible Man was released earlier this year and grossed $122 million at the worldwide box office, despite a run that was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film was made on a small $7 million budget, so it has been a huge success and the Monsters Universe is back on.

The new Wolfman movie is “believed to be set in present times and in the vein of Jake Gyllenhaal’s thriller Nightcrawler, with an obvious supernatural twist,” according to Variety.

Universal is still looking at directors, but the frontrunner is reported to be Cory Finley, who just directed the HBO film Bad Education.
