He’s now been replaced by Whannell, who previously helmed 2020’s The Invisible Man for the studio.

Wolf Man is a collaborative effort between Universal and Blumhouse. Whannell, who also wrote the film along with Corbett Tuck, Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo, is a frequent collaborate with Blumhouse having directed not only The Invisible Man but also Upgrade and Insidious 3 and working as a writer on several other projects.

The Wolf Man is currently slated to hit theaters on October 25, 2024.
