The Illuminerdi website and other sources have reported today that Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino will direct Disney’s upcoming WEREWOLF BY NIGHT Halloween special. Based on the 1972-1977 Marvel comics series (one of several Universal monster comics that Marvel published in the ‘70s), the studio has cast Gael García Bernal and Laura Donnelly in undisclosed roles.
It’s not the composer’s first time in the director’s chair, having directed (and scored) the “Ephraim and Dot” animated episode of STAR TREK: SHORT TREKS as well as directing, writing, and scoring the short 2018 film MONSTER CHALLENGE, starring Patton Oswald.
It’s not known yet is Giacchino will score the WEREWOLF BY NIGHT special or not, although it’s likely since he scored his previous two directorial efforts.
More details to follow as unleashed.
