Director Steve Pink (Accepted) will be following up his male ensemble R-rated comedy Hot Tub Time Machine, which earned $14 million in its debut last weekend, and has garnered many comparisons to The Hangover, by helming the Werewolves of Reseda, an R-rated comedy with a horror-twist that features a male ensemble cast... oh, and it's also being compared to The Hangover.
Even though Werewolves has all the labeling of a director about to be pigeonholed, the Brian Charles Frank-scripted comedy will likely have a darker tone, if it's anything like the film Hesher, the Spencer Susser-directed dramedy that Frank wrote, which Venkman and I saw and loved at Sundance. But hammering home the male ensemble worked for Todd Phillips (Hangover, Old School, Road Trip), so why not let Pink in on the biz?
Werewolves of Reseda tells the story of a group of guys who gradually turn into werewolves, which somehow benefits their suburban family lives.
Reseda is a suburban district of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County. The city also served as the backdrop for the original Karate Kid.
What do you think of Pink taking on the horror-comedy WEREWOLVES of RESEDA?
