Development Hell now talks WEREWOLVES WITHIN with Josh Ruben

The Development Hell podcast talks to Werewolves Within director Josh Ruben. The upcoming horror comedy is based on the cult VR party game.

Josh Ruben is this week’s guest on the Development Hell podcast. Josh is the director behind Werewolves Within but is also a well-known actor and writer. His debut feature film, Scare Me, premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival to positive reviews.

Werewolves Within follows Forest ranger Finn (Veep’s Sam Richardson) who finds himself relocated to the sleepy, remote town of Beaverfield. There, a snowstorm sequesters Finn and a handful of eccentric locals. And soon the mutilated bodies start to pile up.

Josh shares his experience directing this scary adaptation of the hit Ubisoft game. We also learn about his never-made horror series Lee’s Kill List, about a custodian who moonlights as an obsessively tidy serial killer.

The film will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 16th, 2021.
