Seems Leigh Whannell is off Blumhouse’s “Wolfman” and Derek Cianfrance is on.

The film reunites the “Blue Valentine” helmer with that film’s star Ryan Gosling, who plays the title role of the hirsute howler.

“Invisible Man” director Whannell has had to depart his post due to a scheduling clash, says Deadline.

The modern-day take on the horror classic will boast a new script by Cianfrance.
