Following two successful buyers screenings at the Cannes Film Festival, CineCoup announces a sequel to genre hit WolfCop.
Here's what Brad Pelman, CineCoup President, Distribution and Sales, had to say in a statement.
"We are ecstatic by the reception of international buyers to CineCoup's first feature film. Based on the unanimous positive reaction to the film, we will be putting WolfCop II 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 II will be director Lowell Dean, following the same winning formula as his original film.
Raven Banner Managing Partner Michael Paszt had this to say in his statement.
"The unique audience-driven model has created a flurry of international interest. 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 theaters across Canada on June 6, 2014.
