One of 2014’s best indie films is a horror-comedy by the name of WolfCop, written and directed by Lowell Dean. Back in December of 2015 we reported that a sequel was in the works. Dean announced earlier this afternoon via Twitter that WolfCop 2 has officially wrapped filming.
I caught up with Lowell Dean today. He had the following to say about WolfCop 2.
“I had an amazing time on the WolfCop shoot. It was intense and insane, but we has a passionate and talented team both in front of and behind the camera and I can’t wait for the world to see this crazy movie.”
In the first film we are introduced to Lou Garou (Leo Fafard), a lazy alcoholic and a poor excuse for a cop, that is until he is transformed into an ass kicking werewolf, with a taste for justice. One night while out on a call to break up a party out in the woods, Lou is hit from behind and wakes in the morning with flashes of the night before , a murdered politician and a strange ceremony. Lou is cleaning up the city’s dirt-bags and leaving a trail of bodies behind. After being seduced by a beautiful bartender (Sarah Lind), he finds himself in serious trouble, but it’s hard to keep a good wolf down.
Lowell Dean’s film made a huge impression on fans, including myself, and formed an instant cult following. Wolf Cop 2‘s producer Bernie Hernando promises that “The sequel will be bigger, badder, and hairer.”
“We’re excited to get the band back together after all this time,” Hernando stated. “Many of the key creatives on the original project were from Saskatchewan; we considered the initial opportunity to bring a homegrown script to life, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Now it’s twice-in-a-lifetime.”
I spoke with Lowell Dean about the Indiegogo campaign for WolfCop 2, back in June. He had this to say about the sequel, which will be flying under Raven Banner Entertainment and CineCoup:
“Leo Fafard will be returning as WolfCop. I can’t give away too much of the plot, but I will say things are going to get crazier. WolfCop will be put to the test in the sequel. The first one was an origin story, this one is an “on the run” action/horror/comedy.”
Dean told me that hopefully WolfCop 2 will be out in late 2016. Be sure to check our review of WolfCop and if you haven’t seen it, you should do so immediately.
