'Jurassic Park III' Helmer Officially Be 'The Wolfman' Director


Joe Johnston


Though it was said earlier that Brett Ratner got the director role of the Universal Pictures' horror project, the studio have announced on Sunday, February 2 that they have signed Joe Johnston.

Rumors about the signing of the "Rush Hour" helmer Brett Ratner as the helmer of "The Wolfman" has been dished out. According to Variety, Universal Pictures has signed Joe Johnston, the director of "Jurassic Park III" to be Mark Romanek's replacer on Sunday, February 3.

By the signing of Johnston to the horror project, it is more likely that the film will be back on track and will start shooting in London in March. The film, which is said to be set in Victorian England, follows the story of a man who returns from America to his ancestral homeland and gets bitten by a werewolf.

Johnston's filming credits include "The Rocketeer", "Jumanji" and "October Sky". Aside from the third installment of "Jurassic Park", the filmmaker was last involved in the production of 2004's epic action-adventure of one man's personal redemption journey "Hidalgo" starring Viggo Mortensen.
