Scott Steindorff's Stone Village has picked up action thriller spec script Lobo, written by Dikran Ornekian and Ryan Colluci about a colony of werewolves in Brazil. Ezna Sands is attached to direct.
According to Variety, the story centers on a man who receives a photo and letters from his mother's will, then heads to an isolated town in the Amazon to discover his roots. There, he discovers a near-extinct species of werewolves and his true identity, and he helps the werewolves wage a battle for survival.
The film has begun casting, and IPG is packaging a companion graphic novel that will be written by the scribes.
The film has been fast-tracked for an Oct. 15 production start and will shoot outside Rio de Janeiro.
