William Brent Bell’s found footage horror, The Devil Inside, got a real hard time upon release, and I am still baffled at the hate for that film. However, regardless of that, I am sure horror fans are pretty excited at the directors next film called Wer. If you are not, then you should be!
The first poster for the werewolf horror has been released, and its pretty eye-catching to say the least. Things have been really quiet on this film, and the last update was that A.J Cook had signed on to star in the film, and that was way back in March last year!
With any luck, a poster can only mean that a trailer is very close by, and hopefully some release details as well.
William Brent Bell both writes and directs, and he re-teams with his The Devil Inside writer Matthew Peterman, who also writes Wer. Peterman is also producing the film, along with Steven Schneider, producer of The Devil Inside, The Tall Man and the Paranormal Activity films. Morris Paulsonis also producing through his production company Prototype. Robert Hall and his newly re-branded Almost Human Inc. is tackling the makeup and visual effects for WER.
The cast includes A.J. Cook, Simon Quarterman, Sebastian Roche, Vik Sahay, Stephanie Lemelin, Angelina Armani and Brian Johnson.
The found footage flick will take place in a police station in Transylvania where a murder suspect is being held. One night all Hell breaks loose as the suspect turns into a Werewolf!
Wer tells the story of a defense attorney named Kate Moore (A.J. Cook) who has set out to clear the name of a suspect in a brutal murder case. The lead, Talan, is accused of murdering an American family. While Talan appears to be gentle on the surface, his attorney soon learns that Talan is actually a werewolf.
