New Zealand actor and comedian Jemaine Clement has confirmed that a sequel to his and Taiki Waititi’s vampire mockumentary “What We Do In The Shadows” is in the planning stages says The Seattle Times.
The first film followed Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav – three vampires who are finding that modern life has them struggling with mundane things like paying rent, household chores, clubbing and squabbles.
The sequel is expected to put more focus on Rhys Darby’s control-freak werewolf character and his fellow polite lycanthropes.
That isn’t all though as Clement has also spoken about “Police Ten 7,” a TV spin-off series following the film’s pair of easily-manipulable cops (Mike Minogue and Karen O’Leary). In fact they’re already done a sort-of pilot for it, but it sounds like it didn’t go well:
“We’ve pitched a show for those two cops in New Zealand and we’ve made a mini-pilot. At the moment it’s a paranormal activity division of the New Zealand police department. But we’ve already been told before we even handed it in that there’s no money for comedy and that TVNZ tried to make a comedy about a real estate agent and it didn’t go very well. But we still handed it in.”
Clement currently stars in “People Places Things” and has a role in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Roald Dahl adaptation “The BFG”.
