Director Joe Johnston’s upcoming Wolfman is promising to be one of the more anticipated films of 2009. Thanks to both SlashFilm and ShockTillYouDrop, a bunch of concept art depicting Benicio Del Toro’s ZBrushCentral forums were released. These are some cool transformation sequences from Del Toro’s human side to Wolfman.
You can check out the photo below of all the individual pieces arranged together. They were produced by special effects artist Rick Baker, who has been working on this project for a while.
As far as I can tell, these look like maquettes or even bronze statues that Baker created for use on Wolfman. 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 Wolfman is being directed by Joe “Captain America” Johnston and will be released in theaters on November 6th later this year.
Enjoy the pics!
