Veteran action director Simon West (“Con Air,” “The Mechanic”) has been set to helm the supernatural period war drama “War Wolf” for Fortitude International and Amber Entertainment.
Set in 1356, after decades of relentless war between the French and English armies, an English solider is awarded the castle of his French assassin enemy. But in the walls and the lands that surround it, someone has reawakened the Loup de Guerre, a nightmarish creature on a killing spree.
West will direct from a script by Andy Briggs and Paul Finch for what is a first in a planned franchise. Ileen Maisel, Lawrence Elman and Jib Polhemus are producing and filming begins in Italy in November.
