Werewolves are tough to do. They don’t have the sexy thing that vampires have going for them. Zombies are just a cipher for viruses. Werewolves are more complex and you always need to get into personal stories.
You do that with a bunch of hair on your face and that’s not sexy. That’s really tough to pull off visually, to do it from an effects stand point of view. I had sworn after the third Ginger Snaps I was never going to do another movie where I needed a guy in a suit on four legs. That was one of the first things I discussed with director David Hayter. He wanted them to be more human than wolf. I thought, ‘I’m okay with that.’ That has been done many times before as well, so it came down to beyond the characters and what these creatures had to accomplish, what were they going to look like? That’s when I said, ‘If I’m going to be involved, that’s where we spend all of our money.’
The number one concern is what are these werewolves going to look like? That’s why we hired David Elsey.
I’ve always loved American Werewolf in London. That’s the greatest telling of this particular classic mythology that there’s even been. When this opportunity came up, I really looked at as many werewolf movies as I could possibly stomach. There aren’t a lot of great ones. It’s a problem genre. I really loved Ginger Snaps, which was done by our producer Steven Hoban, but that’s not why I’m saying it. It’s a brilliantly executed story of two sisters growing apart because one is hitting adulthood.
If you’re going to do something new with this, you have to find a real- grounded metaphor to apply. Those were the two that really inspired me
