Directed by Brunt, from a script by Pete Wild and Joel Ferrari, Wolf Manor stars James Fleet (Bridgerton, Operation Mincemeat), Jay Taylor (Donkey Punch, “Misfits”), Thaila Zucchi (Evie, Attack of the Adult Babies), Rupert Procter (“Luther,” “Ripper Street”) and John Henshaw (The Keeper, Looking For Eric). This full-throttle, gore-filled tale shadows a film crew as they set about filming a vampire film in an old, abandoned manor house. Much to their chagrin, what should have worked like a dream, turns into a nightmare as the moon turns full and the cast and crew find themselves face to face with the manor’s resident werewolf.
A key player in all werewolf movies is the creature design and Wolf Manor is sure to bring something special to the lycanthrope table with the creature creations crafted by renowned special make-up effects artist Shaune Harrison (Star Wars, “Game of Thrones,” Nightbreed, Grabbers). Make-up design is by Katie Wrigley and Costume Design is by Lance Milligan.
Commenting on the film after having just wrapped, Brunt said: “‘Wolf Manor does exactly what it says on the tin. A werewolf film with a rocket up its behind. Buckets of blood, beautiful countryside, a stellar cast and world-class prosthetics make Wolf Manor a wild ride and, (we humbly feel), it’s a worthy addition to the werewolf movie cannon”
Wolf Manor is a Mitchell-Brunt production, produced by Joanne Mitchell and exec produced by Pete Wild.
