Nichols contribution to our beloved genre came with 1994's WOLF, which starred Jack Nicholson and Michelle Pfeiffer in the lead roles, alongside James Spader, Kate Nelligan, Richard Jenkins, Christopher Plummer, Eileen Atkins, David Hyde Pierce, and Om Puri. The film followed publisher Will Randall (Nicholson) who, after being bit by a wolf, suddenly finds himself energized, more competitive than ever, and possessed with amazingly heightened senses. Meanwhile, the beautiful daughter of his shrewd boss begins to fall for him without realizing that the man she's begun to love is gradually turning into the creature by which he was bit.
Jack Nicholson and Michelle Pfeiffer star in WOLF, a wickedly funny, wildly romantic, white-knuckle thriller. James Spader (TV's "Boston Legal," Sex, Lies and Videotape), Kate Nelligan (The Prince of Tides), Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music) and David Hyde Pierce (TV's "Frasier", Sleepless in Seattle) co-star in this beastly tale of love and betrayal with equal measures of humor, passion and delicious terror.
