Things are getting hairy at Cannes as the long claws of the law are ready to start scratching again! We’ve been talking about the Canadian horror comedy WolfCop for a while now, and even though we haven’t seen it yet, a sequel has been greenlit!
From the Press Release
Following two successful buyers screenings at the Cannes Film Festival, CineCoup announces a sequel to genre hit WolfCop.
“We are ecstatic by the reception of international buyers to CineCoup’s first feature film,” says Brad Pelman, CineCoup President, Distribution and Sales. “Based on the unanimous positive reaction to the film, we will be putting Wolfcop 2 into production this fall. We can’t divulge much about the storyline at this point, only that it will be dirtier and harrier than the first one.”
At the helm of WolfCop 2 will be director Lowell Dean, following the same winning formula as his original film.
“The unique audience-driven model has created a flurry of international interest,” says Raven Banner Managing Partner, Michael Paszt. “That, combined with the genre appeal of WolfCop and its vast spin-off potential has made both CineCoup as a business model and the film an instant hit with international buyers.”
International Sales Agent, Raven Banner Entertainment, will be announcing deals shortly.
WolfCop follows Lou Garou (Leo Fafard), an alcoholic cop who tends to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings. However, lately things have taken a strange turn. Crime scenes seem oddly familiar, Lou’s senses are heightened, and when the full moon is out, he’s a rage-fueled werewolf. WolfCop is one cop’s quest to become a better man…one transformation at a time.
WolfCop (the original) opens in theatres across Canada on June 6, 2014.
