2024 is already shaping up to be the year of the werewolf. Not that we’re complaining. This year, we will see several horror films howling at the moon, including Blackout, The Wolf Man, and Werewolves. Another werewolf movie has now surfaced Wolf Night.

Jonathan Liebsman, the filmmaker behind The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Begining back in 2006, is set to helm Platinum Dunes’ Wolf Night, according to Deadline.

While details remain sparse, we know that the script for Wolf Night was penned by Will Honley (Escape Room: Tournament of Champions) and April Maguire. Wolf Night is already being compared to a mix of The Purge and District 9, except with werewolves. We also know that the film is in a bidding war between multiple studios. That’s a great sign.

Odds are, if you are a horror fan, you have seen at least one movie by Liebsman. He’s known for directing Darkness FallsRingsThe Killing Room, Battle Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans (2012), and directing the series “Halo.” Needless to say, the man knows how to deliver chills and thrills with several horror titles under his talented belt.  Add the fact that industry heavy-hitters Michael Bay and Brad Fuller are producing. Odds of this flick has a real chance of being a hair-raising spectacle we won’t soon forget.

We will keep you posted as more details begin to surface. While you wait, you can now watch Darkness Falls and Rings on Apple TV, Battle Los Angeles on Prime Vidio, and watch the new season of “Halo” on Paramount+.
