Time and time again, I hear people bashing Canadian productions. But with the fantastic The Grand Seduction opening in theatres last week and another great Canadian release this weekend, maybe it’s time to give your head a shake!
Okay, so Wolfcop might not scream as something equal to the caliber as The Grand Seduction, which features Taylor Kitsch, Brendan Gleeson, Gordon and Pinsent and director Don McKellar, but its success before even opening is hard to ignore.
The film, which was shot in Saskatchewan, played to rave reviews in Cannes and was purchased. And the advance buzz of the film is so intense, that a sequel is already being made, before the first movie has even been released. The website Bloody Disgusting said: “WolfCop is destined for cult glory.”
Curious now? Me too.
So what’s Wolfcop about? Well, it’s about a Wolf cop. But here’s the official description:
WolfCop is a horror-comedy that follows Lou Garou (Leo Fafard), an alcoholic cop who tends to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings. However, lately things have taken a strange turn. Crime scenes seem oddly familiar, Lou’s senses are heightened, and when the full moon is out, he’s a rage-fueled werewolf. WolfCop is one cop’s quest to become a better man…one transformation at a time
WolfCop will be released exclusively through Cineplex on June 6 in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw and on June 13 in Toronto, Ottawa and Winnipeg.
