According to Deadline, the horror mystery is based on a popular party game from the late 1980s. The film will be based on the game and will follow twelve strangers who are abducted by a social network business and must decide on which members of the party to murder. Todd highlighted a “strong attraction” to the part and his relationship with producer Rob Margolies while discussing the project. Tony Todd (Candyman) and Lydia Hearst (Cabin Fever 3) have been added to the cast of Werewolf Game, a new horror thriller from Jackie Payne and Cara Brennan.
Todd said “My roots as an actor are grounded in theater, which is why my iconic character in Werewolf Game strongly appeals to me, much like Immortal (2020), my first collaboration with Margolies.”
Rob Margolie, the creator of Different Duck Films, will produce the film alongside Gretel Snyder. Filming is set to begin this spring in Los Angeles.
Tony Todd, the charismatic 6′ 5″ actor most remembered for his terrifying portrayal as “Candyman,” has regularly delivered fascinating performances since his debut in the fantasy film Sleepwalk (1986).
Lydia Hearst, an actress and supermodel, is the great-granddaughter of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst. She splits her time between Los Angeles and New York City, where she works full-time in cinema and fashion. Lydia, who was born in New Haven, Connecticut, has also lived in London and Paris.
