Ketchup gets on X-Men writer’s Wolves

Ketchup Entertainment today announced the acquisition of U.S. rights to “Wolves”, the directorial debut of screenwriter David Hayter (”X-Men”, ”X2”, ”Watchmen”), the studio announced today.

The werewolf action-thriller, written by Hayter, stars Lucas Till (”X-Men: First Class”), Stephen McHattie (”Immortals”, ”Watchmen”) and Jason Momoa (”Game of Thrones”, ”Conan the Barbarian”). The film is produced by Copperheart Entertainment’s Steve Hoban (”Splice”, ”Ginger Snaps”), with makeup effects by Oscar-winning creature designers Dave Elsey and Lou Elsey (”The Wolfman”, ”X-Men: First Class”).

“Wolves” follows the story of Cayden Richards (Till) – a handsome eighteen year-old with a dark secret. Forced to hit the road after the brutal murder of his parents, Cayden finds himself turning into a savage wolf and is thrust between two warring clans of werewolves fighting for control of the ominous town of Lupine Ridge.

Ketchup CEO Gareth West stated “From the first time we saw Wolves, we knew audiences would be swept up in the exciting action and powerful storytelling. We are thrilled to be working with such a talented group of filmmakers and actors, and feel that Wolves is a great addition to the Ketchup slate.”

David Hayter said, “I am so pleased to partner with Ketchup Entertainment for the U.S. theatrical release of WOLVES. My producers and I have worked for years to make WOLVES something special and unique, and I am confident that we have found committed partners who share that vision.”

“Wolves” was financed by Copperheart Entertainment, TF1 International and Telefilm Canada. The cast also includes Merritt Patterson (“Ravenswood”) and John Pyper-Ferguson (“Burn Notice,” Drive).

The deal was negotiated by Ketchup Entertainment’s CEO Gareth West and Head of Acquisitions Stephen Stanley with UTA Independent Film Group and executive producer Benedict Carver on behalf of the filmmakers. “Wolves” is eyeing a Summer 2014 theatrical release.
