“We are so thrilled to release this title and unleash the fuzz on audiences,” said Ward. “It’s a hilarious send-up of different genres that will take audiences on a wild trip.”
The deal was negotiated by Image Entertainment’s SVP of Acquisitions, Mark Ward, and Managing Partners Michael Paszt and James Fler of Raven Banner Entertainment brokered the deal on behalf of the producers.
WOLFCOP follows Lou Garou (Leo Fafard), an alcoholic cop who tends to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings. However, lately things have taken a strange turn. Crime scenes seem oddly familiar; Lou’s senses are heightened; and when the full moon is out, he’s a rage-fueled werewolf. WOLFCOP is one cop’s quest to become a better man…one transformation at a time.
WOLFCOP is produced by Lowell Dean, Bernie Hernando, Deborah Marks, Danielle Masters and Hugh Patterson and executive produced by J. Joly, Bill Marks, Brad Pelman, Sean Buckley and Brian Wildeen.
On behalf of the Cinecoup team, Brad Pelman, president of sales and distribution added “Image is a terrific company who embraced our brave idea. Wolfcop and the Cinecoup audience building idea will be embraced by Mark Ward and his team at Image”
