As reported by Crave,Â Taika Waititi andÂ Jemaine Clement are “trying to write a werewolves spin-off” to their 2014 vampire horror/comedyÂ What We Do in the Shadows.Â “Itâ€™s going to be called Weâ€™re Wolves,” says Waititi â€“ “like ‘We are wolves.’Â Weâ€™re Wolves.”
This is one of two projects Waititi’s considering after he’s finished directingÂ 2017’sÂ Thor: RagnarokÂ (as though a Marvel Cinematic Universe tentpole film is something you just casually complete), and he tells Crave it “will most likely be the next thing” he works on.
Even if I need to wait until 2018, I couldn’t be happier. What We Do… is hands-down the funniest thing I saw last year, and IÂ say that as someone with a fairly dim view of vampires.Â If Waititi and Clement can find a werewolf treatment that’s even half as delightful, funny, frightening and sincere as the one they gaveÂ Viago, Vlad and Deacon,Â We’re Wolves will be a shoo-in for my new favourite werewolf movie.
Here’s hopingÂ Rhys Darby’s pack returns, along with its newest member â€“ a person I think of fondly, but whose name I won’t mention, lest I spoilÂ What We Do…Â for anyone lucky enough to get to watch it for the first time.
