Tapping into Native American folklore
Hannover House has partnered with producer Rohan Ghodsi’s Illusion Film Studios for the production Dances With Werewolves, a thriller by screenwriter David Chirchirillo based on the legendary, supernatural transformative powers of some Native American Indian warriors.
The film will be produced in 3-D for theatrical release in 2012 through Hannover House.
Chad Ferrin (Someone’s Knocking At The Door) will direct the film, with Nicole Reid and Niklas Larsson sharing producing duties with Ghodsi.
“The legend of Native American warriors transforming themselves into enormously powerful wolves is centuries old,” says Hannover House C.E.O., Eric Parkinson. “But it’s a concept that for many audiences was only recently re-introduced through the successful ‘Twilight’ series of books and films. We think that screenwriter David Chirchirillo has skillfully crafted a commercial thriller around this legend, and that Rohan, Chad and the entire production team will make a terrific movie from this property.”
The film will commence principal photography on October 24 in Michigan.
Casting is currently underway for principal stars.
