Narnia Director Plans Werewolf Movie

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.”
