The Devil Inside star Simon Quarterman is reuniting with director William Brent Bell for Wer, which also has A.J. Cook (Criminal Minds) attached to star.

The story centers on a lawyer (A.J. Cook), who is trying to acquit Gavin Flemyng (Simon Quarterman) on charges he murdered a family. The attorney begins to discover that her soft-spoken client is actually a werewolf.

William Brent Bell is directing from a script he co-wrote with his The Devil Inside writing partner, Matthew Peterman. Steven Schneider is producing alongside Matthew Peterman and Morris Paulson.

Production is scheduled to begin next month in Romania, with FilmDistrict financing alongside Sierra/Affinity and the Incentive Filmed Entertainment Fund.
