Werewolf by Night: Laura Donnelly would jump at the chance to work on a follow-up

Last month, Marvel and Disney+ released the very cool creature feature Halloween special Werewolf at night (you can read our 8/10 review HERE). So far, there’s been no word on when the characters introduced in the special — titular werewolf Jack Russell (Gael García Bernal), monster hunter daughter Elsa Bloodstone (Laura Donnelly) and swamp monster Man-Thing — will return in future movies, specials or series . But during an interview with The packagingDonnelly was excited about the idea of ​​returning for a follow-up.

Donnelly said: “What I love about this particular story for Elsa is that we get such a sense that we are only at the beginning of something for her; she is not introduced as the character we know from the comics. It is her before that, or maybe she has been and something has happened – we don’t know. And then it feels like it’s just this little taste of the many, many layers that are underneath and a huge back story. Any opportunity to explore [a follow-up], I would jump on board and I would also love to explore the relationship between Elsa and Jack as well. It’s just one that’s just touched and you see the beginning of something blossoming and we don’t know what it is. And I love working with Gael. I would be very, very happy to – just give me a call.

Composer Michael Giacchino instructed Werewolf at night, working from a screenplay by Heather Quinn and Peter Cameron. The thesis has the following synopsis:

On a dark and gloomy night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather at the attacking Bloodstone Temple after the death of their leader. In a strange and macabre memorial to the leader’s life, the participants are thrown into a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic – a hunt that will ultimately bring them face to face with a dangerous monster.

Giacchino previously directed the short film Monster challenge and an episode of the animated series Star Trek: Maps Trek. He worked with Marvel on Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far from Home, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and The falcon and the winter Soldier.

talking with empireGiacchino described Werewolf at night as a “love letter to monsters and the humanity behind them”.
