Pierce Brosnan to hunt lycanthropes in “WOLFLAND,” with Andy Serkis’ company on the effects

Wednesday, May 15, 2024 | News


The upcoming werewolf thriller is a father-and-son project.

Light Sound Frequency and The Exchange have announced that Pierce Brosnan will star in their creature feature WOLFLAND, with the actor’s son Sean Brosnan directing. The latter also scripted with Matt D’Elia, and Imaginarium Studios, headed by Andy Serkis (the LORD OF THE RINGS and PLANET OF THE APES franchises), will handle the creature design and effects. The synopsis: “In this epic odyssey, a young teenager’s sister is viciously attacked and shows signs of a transformation, and he leaves his small village in search of a legendary werewolf hunter who can reverse the gruesome curse. When he finds the ‘legend,’ Devlin, slumped against a bar and in no mood for ghost stories, Devlin takes the kid’s money and agrees to hunt down this phantom monster, only for them to find themselves in a deadly whirlwind of carnage.”

“I’m excited to be working with Pierce on a film that aims to redefine the werewolf subgenre,” Sean Brosnan says. “With the amazing special effects talents at Imaginarium, we’ll craft a werewolf transformation set to rival the iconic scenes from AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON. We’re thrilled about the potential impact of an expanding WOLFLAND universe.”

WOLFLAND is currently in preproduction and aiming to film later this year on UK locations. The Exchange is currently handling worldwide sales at the Cannes Film Festival.
