While a little film called “First Howl” regroups after the untimely death of two it’s attached cast members, a fellow lyncanthrope effort titled “Wolves” gets up and going.
Writer David Hayter (“Watchmen”, “X-Men”) is making his directorial debut on the film.
The tyro filmmaker tells Deadline that “Wolves” is “Twilight with a bit more bite to it, and without abstinence.”
Says the site, “Hayter said he de-constructed past werewolf films, took out the mythology that haunted the screen adaptations, and found a way to make it a metaphor for a teen maturing sexually into adulthood, at the age when young men howl at the moon. While Hayter had Thomas Dekker and Ray Stevenson lined up for the Crystal Sky version, casting is just getting underway. Canada-based E1 will handle Canadian distribution on Wolves.”
Let’s hope the market isn’t over-saturated with Werewolf flicks too soon.
