“Growl”: Fight Club with werewolves?

A. Quinton — Jun. 9th 2010

ShockTillYouDrop.com has got an exclusive first look at “Growl”, a movie about brawlin’ werewolves that’s due out next year. “It’s Fight Club versus werewolves,” says director Sxv’Leithan Essex. “Two of my favorite things thrown in the ring to see what will come out alive.”

Here’s the premise:

A traveling underground fight club called ‘The Brawlers’ arrive at a derelict ghost town tucked away in the Colorado Rockies. They meet the town’s only residents, the Maxilla family who want to buy on to the fight card. But the Maxilla family’s true intentions for the Brawler crew is soon revealed in teeth and claws. Some will be hunted, some will be feed, and some will become part of the family…whether they like it or not.

The confirmed cast includes Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Josh Kelly (Circle of Eight), Paul Bean and Jennifer Lee Wiggins (Bled). Apparently Kiefer Sutherland might be on board, too, which would add a whole new dimension of awesome. Sxv’Leithan (pronounced “skuh-lee-than”) has plans to turn this concept into a franchise, with two more films to follow after the first, a prequel graphic novel and a video game that sets up the second film. No details yet on any of these extras, though.

Hit the STYD article for more, including a photo gallery (no werewolves yet) and a poster. Hey, I know where that photo came from because I’m a huge nerd! Hat tips to Viergacht and @MadNad for bringing Growl to my attention.

    It’s about time someone combined werewolves and Fight Club into a single, cinematic razor blade. They’ll have to be careful to include just the right amount of camp, or else they’ll ruin it. But hell, if it can measure up to Blade: Trinity standards, I’ll be happy. After all, that movie had a vampire hunter doing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu on a near-invincible vampire. Imo, watching a Count Chocula get triangle-armbarred / omo-plata’d like that was satisfying beyond words. If they can make a cagefighter werewolf with equal ninjanity, I’ll be even happier.

  • mmm…cagefighter werewolves…sounds delectable!
