Check This Out: Rick Baker's Concept Art for Wolf Man
The last story we wrote about Joe Johnston's upcoming Wolf Man movie was late last year and it was about Universal deciding to push the release from April until November. Hence why it's great to finally have something to write about from Wolf Man, because I don't want this movie to get lost in the mix as we wait the nine remaining months until its release. Thanks to both SlashFilm and ShockTillYouDrop, a bunch of concept art depicting Benicio Del Toro's transformation into the Wolf Man was found on the ZBrushCentral forums. And if that teaser image above is any indication, these are pretty frickin' awesome to see.
You can check out the photo below of all the individual pieces arranged together or click on it to head over to the forums and find each of the shots individually. They were produced by special effects artist Rick Baker, who has been working on this project for a while, as we've known from the very beginning.
As far as I can tell, these look like maquettes or even bronze statues that Baker created for use on Wolf Man. If anyone can tell me if these are actually sculpts or paintings, let me know, as I'd like to actually have my facts straight. Benicio Del Toro plays Lawrence Talbot, who is bitten by a werewolf and turns into one. His human love interest is played by Emily Blunt and Anthony Hopkins plays his father, Sir John Talbot. Hugo Weaving plays Detective Aberline who investigates the murders. The Wolf Man is being directed by Joe "Captain America" Johnston and is currently scheduled to hit theaters on November 6th later this year.
