Andrew Adamson, director of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Prince Caspian and the first two Shrek movies, is developing the werewolf novel Benighted into a film. Adamson mentions it in an interview with the NZ Herald, where he talks about the pleasure of working on a less family-oriented feature.
“It’s a great story, it’s kind of dealing with issues of apartheid in a different way. It’s a world which is 95 per cent werewolves and the 5 per cent non-werewolves are kind of kept around because they can police the one night a month when everyone goes a bit anarchic.
“So it’s this interesting thing where you have a minority police state but the werewolves have most of the political power so it’s kind of a great sort of parable.”
