Beniciodeltoro_thewolfman_290 Looks like Edward and Bella will have one less werewolf to deal with this year: Benicio del Toro‘s “The Wolfman,” which had been scheduled to claw into theaters just two weeks before “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” has been pushed back to 2010.

The film, a remake of the 1941 Universal horror classic, is now slated for a Feb. 12 release, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The move is supposedly due to unfinished visual effects, though the fact that a similarly supernatural juggernaut was set to release Nov. 20 probably didn’t help.

Universal’s move comes alongside several others, with Matt Damon’s “Green Zone” heading to March 12 and thriller “The Fourth Kind” sliding up to “Wolfman’s” original Nov. 6 spot.

“The Wolfman” follows del Toro’s Lawrence Talbot as he confronts his father (Anthony Hopkins) and his brother’s widow (Emily Blunt) about the family’s lycanthropy.
