Thomas Jane was recently quoted in an interview with Collider.com that he was returning to horror with an upcoming werewolf film entitled THE LYCAN. Here’s what he had to say:
“I’m doing a werewolf movie called, The Lycan, which is a gothic werewolf romance set in the late 1700s. it’s fuckin’ cool. It’s basically Alien, set in a castle, with werewolves.”
Jesus on a bike, this sounds awful. Don’t get me wrong, werewolves are my favorite, FAVORITE monster (though, if you ask me, there has yet to be the ultimate werewolf movie…I’m working on that…just werewolf movies with a few good parts), but even the title here is awful. Ever since those Underwear, er, Underworld movies, werewolves seem to be called “lycans” which is bullshit. It’s also a period piece, and those are always tricky. I have a feeling we’re going to be seeing a lot of CG bullshit where the werewolf is concerned… No, this movie sounds like utter shit. I’ll probably see it at some point, but it’s going to get it’s due here in the shack, lemme tell ya.
