Werewolves in Brazil

As everyone and their sainted aunt is reporting (including the ever-vigilant ArcLight), Stone Village Pictures has acquired the rights to Lobo, a script by Dikran Ornekian and Ryan Colluci “about a colony of werewolves in Brazil.” Everyone’s basically reposting the same blurb from Variety:

…a man receives a photo and letters from his mother’s will, then heads to an isolated town in the Amazon to discover his roots. There, he discovers a near-extinct species of werewolves and his true identity, and he helps the werewolves wage a battle for survival.

Fighting to help keep werewolves from extinction? That’s a premise I can get behind! Filming starts October 15th in Rio de Janeiro.
