Hey gang! There's a pretty awesome horror movie that's currently in the works called Growl, which is being directed by Sxv'Leithan Essex. In a recent interview with STYD the director talked about the movie and shared some production photos. Here is what the director had to say.
It's Fight Club versus werewolves. Two of my favorite things thrown in the ring to see what will come out alive. But what I love most about it is its completely character driven. I started writing and wanting to direct after seeing Aliens in theaters and how James Cameron made you care about the characters who would eventually be in peril. I love the characters in Growl like they are my family and it sucks to have to kill some of them off. But they do die some glorious deaths. I'm a total horror freak and I write with horror junkies like me in mind, creating the type of film we really want to see on the big screen.
How awesome is this movie sounding!? He had me at "It's Fight Club versus werewolves." The film is currently shooting in Los Angeles and it's put together a pretty cool cast that includes Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) to star along with Josh Kelly (Circle of Eight), Paul Bean, Jennifer Lee Wiggins (Bled) and Mark Sherman. And there is a possibility that Kiefer Sutherland will join the cast as well! He's currently in talks.
There is a trilogy of Growl films that have been outlined already, so there is a possibility we will see more. Sxv'Leithan goes on to explain,
We have the trilogy outlined, a prequel graphic novel and a videogame that sets up the events and characters in Growl 2. I'm a huge comic book fan as well and love when ancillary properties directly link into the films. There will be lots of character background and connective tissue in the graphic novel and videogame and it won't be just a moneymaking tool. This is for horror junkies like Lee and I. More meat to chew on while you wait for the next installment. Lee and I are going to be in the world of Growl for a long while and we couldn't be happier about it.
Here is the synopsis of the film:
A traveling underground fight club called 'The Brawlers' arrive at a derelict ghost town tucked away in the Colorado Rockies. They meet the town's only residents, the Maxilla family, who want to buy on to the fight card. But the Maxilla family's true intentions for the Brawler crew is soon revealed in teeth and claws. Some will be hunted, some will be feed, and some will become part of the family whether they like it or not.
This film sounds like its gonna be one hell of a fun film and I am seriously looking forward to seeing it. Check out the images below and tell us what ya think! Does this movie sound like fun to you?
