Filmmaker and Distributor Quotes
“Another WolfCop will be bigger and better, or to put it more appropriately for our burgeoning franchise, “dirtier and hairier.” This sequel will continue the storyline from the first film while improving things on every front. There will be deeper character development, storytelling and mythology...more iconic visuals and cinematography...better fights...and a crazy amount of “what did I just see” moments.” - Lowell Dean, Director of the WolfCop Film Series
“We’re beyond excited for Black Fawn Distribution to become part of the WolfCop family. This film series is everything genre fans crave and the end result is a sequel that genuinely rocks. With the blood, liquor, guns and donuts pumped up to ridiculously awesome proportions, Another WolfCop truly is a fun experience. Plus, how cool is that poster?” - C.F. Benner, Sales Manager, Black Fawn Distribution
Synopsis: A month has passed since the eclipse transformed hard-drinking Officer Lou Garou into the crime fighting hellion WolfCop. Although the Shape Shifters controlling the town have been extinguished, Woodhaven is far from returning to normal. Lou’s liquor-fueled antics and full moon outbursts are seriously testing his relationship with Officer Tina Walsh – the new Chief of Police. An old friend has mysteriously reappeared with a truly bizarre secret to share, and a homicidal new villain has emerged from the shadows looking to finish what the Shape Shifters started. To defeat this lethal adversary, it will take more than a lone wolf packing a pistol. Prepare for the next chapter of “WolfCop” that will be more dirty and hairy than the original! Consider yourself warned.
