TORONTO — Producers of the made-in-Saskatchewan horror-comedy WolfCop announced plans for a sequel Monday — before the original is released.

WolfCop, which opens in Canada on June 6, follows an alcoholic police officer (Leo Fafard) who transforms into a werewolf.

“We are ecstatic by the reception of international buyers,” said Brad Pelman, president of distribution and sales for CineCoup, in a release.

CineCoup awarded $1 million in production financing to the filmmakers last year. The movie was shot in Regina last fall.

“Based on the unanimous positive reaction to the film, we will be putting WolfCop 2 into production this fall.”

Pelman promised the second chapter will be “dirtier and harrier than the first one.”

Writer/director Lowell Dean will helm the sequel.

WolfCop was screened for buyers in Cannes during the annual film festival and producers said Monday they will soon announce deals.
