‘The Devil Wears Prada’ actress Emily Blunt has confirmed that she’s set to play the love interest of Benicio del Toro in 'The Wolf Man'.
The film will be directed by Mark Romanek, who will adapt the classic Lon Chaney Jr horror film from a script by ‘Seven’ writer Andrew Kevin Walker.
Speaking to Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, Blunt expressed her enthusiasm for the project.
"I don't really love horror, but I love those two guys [Mark Romanek and Benicio del Toro] and that's why I want to do it," she explained.
She continued: "It's a great script, as well as very smart and dark, it's gonna be scary. I think it will have quite a gothic edge and I hope people like it."
The actress is currently showcasing her two very different films playing at the festival: ‘Sunshine Cleaning’, in which she's teamed with Amy Adams as sisters who become crime scene cleaners, and ‘The Great Buck Howard’, in which she plays a fiery publicist hired to stage the comeback of a lifetime.
'The Wolf Man' is due for release in 2009.
