WolfCop 2 is Official
Creative Saskatchewan and Cinecoup are proud to announce that WolfCop 2 will begin shooting in Saskatchewan in February 2016.
Producers Bernie Hernando, Hugh Patterson and Deborah Marks, are thrilled to start filming the sequel to such a well-received, global cult phenomenon.
The plan is to deliver a sequel that offers audiences more of what they craved from the original. “Bigger. Badder. Dirtier. Hairier,” said producer Bernie Hernando. “Plus, audiences will be happy to learn that Lowell Dean will return as director and local actors Amy Matysio (“Tina”) and Leo Fafard (“WolfCop”) will reprise their leading roles.”
“We’re excited to get the band back together after all this time,” adds Hernando. “Many of the key creatives on the original project were from Saskatchewan; we considered the initial opportunity to bring a homegrown script to life, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Now it’s twice-in-a-lifetime!”
“WolfCop is an excellent example of a Saskatchewan film industry success story,” said JP Ellson CEO of Creative Saskatchewan. “We’re pleased to offer financial support to the sequel and look forward to welcoming the production back to our province.”
A release date for WolfCop 2 has not been set, but producers hope to screen the finished product as early as summer 2016.
