As reported by Crave, Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement are “trying to write a werewolves spin-off” to their 2014 vampire horror/comedy What We Do in the Shadows. “It’s going to be called We’re Wolves,” says Waititi – “like ‘We are wolves.’ We’re Wolves.”
This is one of two projects Waititi’s considering after he’s finished directing 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok (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 I say that as someone with a fairly dim view of vampires. If Waititi and Clement can find a werewolf treatment that’s even half as delightful, funny, frightening and sincere as the one they gave Viago, Vlad and Deacon, We’re Wolves will be a shoo-in for my new favourite werewolf movie.
Here’s hoping Rhys Darby’s pack returns, along with its newest member – a person I think of fondly, but whose name I won’t mention, lest I spoil What We Do… for anyone lucky enough to get to watch it for the first time.
