Director Joe Johnston and makeup special effects wizard Rick Baker had a big project to tackle with Universal's new The Wolfman movie, especially since Johnston came on two weeks after the film had started rolling as a new director. That meant he had to work fast, while simultaneously trying to give others the information they needed to get their work done at a similar pace. Probably no one felt that as much as Rick Baker, who had to complete his creature designs while cameras were rolling.

We spoke to both Johnston and Baker recently about the movie, and you can read what they had to say after the break. Here's to hoping Universal has the nards (like Wolfman) to bring back their entire classic movie monsters line with the respect it deserves. Personally, I'm looking forward to The Invisible Man, sans Chevy Chase.
