On Set Photos: Hugo Weaving in Wolfman

Though not as awesome or as polished as the previous photos we brought of Benicio Del Toro as the Wolfman, the latest snaps from the Gazette and Herald are still pretty exciting. We at least get a first glimpse of the wickedly talented Hugo Weaving sporting period attire and a rare, relaxed grin; Weaving plays stern and serious like no other and is an actor I can wait to see on screen again.

The photos come from the quaint village of Lacock in Wilshire, England where filming of the 1941-remake is currently taking place. The upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince actually filmed in this location as well earlier this year, given the village's attractive, historically intact appearance.

Apparently a lot of the filming took place inside the 14th Century Tithe Barn. That scene is definitely one I would want a sneak peak at, being described as containing "huge blocks of ice and models of dead bodies were strewn across the floor and hanging by metal hooks." Hints of grisly scenes like this and the fearful trio of Anthony Hopkins, Del Toro and Weaving clearly makes this film a list-topper for sure.

Del Toro plays Lawrence Talbot, who is bitten by a werewolf and turns into one. His human love interest is played by Emily Blunt (Devil Wears Prada), while Hopkins plays his father, Sir John Talbot. Weaving is Detective Aberline who investigates the Wolfman's murders. That top hat has detective written all over it.

The Wolfman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on April 3rd, 2009.
