Producers Joel Kasterlberg and Etchie Stroh are planning to their reboot of "The Howling" werewolf franchise with a new film called "The Howling: Reborn" and has former studio marketing executive Joe Nimziki making his feature directorial debut.

The original "Howling," directed by Joe Dante (Piranha, Gremlins) from a script by John Sayles, was released in 1981 and spawned six sequels. Dee Wallace-Stone starred as a news anchor stalked by a serial killer who turns out to be a werewolf.

"The Howling: Reborn" is scheduled to begin filming in February of next year for Halloween release. Plot details are currently being kept a secret.

Ryan Kavanaugh, revealed that the script for "The Crow" reboot movie is finished and that he expects to get a green light in just a few months.

"'The Crow' is definitely going to happen, we're just getting all the pieces together right now," he said. "It's not officially greenlit, but it's going to happen. I think in a couple months we could have the package together for sure."

Kavanaugh added that they're in discussions with actors right now and that the new film will not be a remake of the original. It is a relaunch of the whole franchise. "We're approaching it differently," he said. "It's really a whole relaunch of the franchise, much more of a dark superhero type."

Regarding the main character, Kavanaugh said that he will be "much more present day" and "he'll have makeup, but it will be different. The best way to compare it is the first 'Batman' and 'Batman Begins.' In terms of their look and feel and character."
