Guillermo del Toro & Issa López’s Werewolf Western Will Be Very Dark, Very Violent & Fun

Tigers Are Not Afraid writer-director Issa López is currently working on a werewolf Western (yeah, you read that right) with producer and The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro. And today, López lets us know that the film will be very dark, very violent, and a lot of fun.

She tells Collider: “We started looking at options and he came to me with this idea for a werewolf Western and I loved it because who would think of a werewolf Western directed by a Mexican woman director? It’s such an odd combination; I would definitely want to see that! And I always want to make good movies that I want to see. So it is very dark, it is very violent, it’s a lot of fun.”
