News: John Landis Advised Son Against Doing American Werewolf Remake

The world is full of way too many remakes. Original movies are where it's at. And director John Landis agrees. When he heard of his son Max Landis' involvement in the upcoming scripting and remake of An American Werewolf in London, he told him it was a bad idea. Considering the original is considered an all time modern classic that still holds up as a powerhouse of practical effects work, John is no fan of the film being remade. 

When speaking with Collider, he had this to say:
"Truthfully, I’ve not seen his script. I advised him not to do it. I think he’s putting himself in a bad position. My son is brilliant, he really is, and he wants to do it. So what am I going to say? No? I know it won’t be as bad as An American Werewolf In Paris, which was shitt. So, I don’t know. He’s a great writer."

Max is still in the phases of writing the script and plans on taking on directorial duties himself. However, without his father's blessing, it seems like a fruitless venture and one that not many will support unless he sticks to his guns and goes straight old school practical effects and makeup work.
