In the works for a few years now, the horror/Western DANCES
WITH WEREWOLVES now has a nice chunk of change to dance with. A new production
announcement has come down from a company that also has another period chiller
in its pipeline.
Australia-based Galloping Illusions let Fango know about its
two-picture production deal with New York’s Ariane Entertainment that includes
a $10-million budget for WEREWOLVES, which we last reported on (with an
exclusive piece of monster production art) here. Set during the Civil War and focusing on a group of POWs battling Native
American shapeshifters, the film will be directed by Chad Ferrin (pictured
above) and rolls in Louisiana next January. Carlos Alperin and Roham Ghodsi (of
Ferrin’s previous SOMEONE’S KNOCKING AT THE DOOR) are producing, with Rene
Robinson as executive producer; SFX Studio, whose credits include UNDERWORLD
and ALIEN TRESPASS, will handle the special FX, with postproduction overseen by
Crest Digital (TITANIC, THE MATRIX, STAR TREK)—though it isn’t clear whether
the movie, as previously announced, will still be in 3D. Casting is currently
The second film is the latest to recast historical figures
as supernatural heroes: in THOMAS EDISON, DEMON HUNTER, rival inventors Edison
and Nikola Tesla join forces to stop legendary occultist Aleister Crowley from
unleashing hell on Earth. This one will also shoot in Louisiana, beginning in
July 2012. Look for more details as they come in!
