Chad Ferrin Looks to ‘The Thing’ For ‘Dances With Werewolves’ Inspiration

It was announced last week that Chad Ferrin would be getting behind the camera for Dances With Werewolves, a thriller by screenwriter David Chirchirillo based on the legendary, supernatural transformative powers of some Native American Indian warriors. While no details about the 3D project were revealed, we had to assume that the creepy mind behind Someone’s Knocking At The Door was planning a new spin for this genre. We were right, oh damn we were right!

The vision swimming around in my head is Sam Peckinpah doing The Thing with a dash of Sergio Corbucci,” Ferran tells Bloody Disgusting in an excluisve chat. “I want to tackle this old school with NO CGI and werewolves like you’ve never seen before. It will be a bloody, violent, horrific ride through the old west, and I will pour my soul into every frame to ensure that it stands proudly amongst my two favorite genres.

How about that folks? And I know this guy can deliver. Color me excited.

The film will commence principal photography on October 24, 2010 in Michigan, with full delivery scheduled for September, 2011 and U.S.A. theatrical release set for February, 2012. Casting is currently underway for principal stars, with key talent to be announced in July.
