Production has officially wrapped on Tony Jopia’s indie horror comedy Crying Wolf (based on his short “Cry Wolf”), which stars Caroline Munro, Terry Christian, Joe Egan, Kristofer Dayne, Gabriella Hersham, Ian Donnelly, David Sellicks, Marco Rice, Rosie Pearson, Carlos Paginton, Hugh Edwards, Terry Andrews, Rog Pinkham and Kimberley Jaraj.
From Tirana Films International and Great Dayne Entertainment, “The story is about the antics of a group of young locals in a Cotswolds village who become werewolves after one of them is bitten,” reports the Guardian.
Said Jopia: “It’s a very wacky, crazy comedy very much in the style of Hammer Horror, Benny Hill and the old Ealing comedies – lots of Britishness! We filmed it in Deddington and on a farm in Duns Tew.
“We’ve got some really amazing special effects and prosthetics – some of the werewolves had to undergo seven hours in make-up for 20 minutes’ filming!”
The film will be released in the UK next February.
