Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) has joined the film adaption of Rules For Werewolves.
Written by playwright and novelist Kirk Lynn the story was originally adapted as a short film set to premiere at this year’s SXSW in Austin. The story is told mostly through a single take and investigates the rituals and rhythms of a pack of wild teens as they break in and loot a new home, leaving someone (or something) behind for the cops to find.
Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux directed the short and will also direct the feature length film, with production scheduled to start in late 2020 or in early 2021.
Wolfhard had this to say about Schaulin-Rioux:
“This short film represents the fourth time I’ve worked with Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux. He’s one of Canada’s most imaginative directors, and I look forward to collaborating with him again as we take Kirk Lynn’s provocative text and expand this short into a very strong feature reflecting teenage lives in the wild and anxious era.”
