Taika Waititi is currently tied up in the Marvel universe for Thor: Ragnarok, but he hasn’t forgotten about some of the other, non-superheroic projects he’s got on his back burner. Like We’re Wolves, the proposed What We Do in the Shadows spinoff/sequel. The filmmaker confirmed “it’s still in the works,” though he cautioned it’ll probably be a while before we actually get to see it.
In the meantime, you can check out his latest feature Hunt for the Wilderpeople, now out on VOD. And if you like it, there could be more where that came from.

We haven’t been shy about out love for What We Do in the Shadows and we’ve sunk our teeth into every morsel of Thor: Ragnarok news that has come our way. We even just ran a positive review of his new movie, Hunt For the Wilderpeople, which just played at the Sundance Film Festival. It’s safe to say that he’s one of our current favorite directors.
And now he’s shed some more moonlight on the spin-off to What We Do in the Shadows, which will focus on the pack of werewolves who rear their furry heads a few times in the original movie. And it has a title so good that we’re going to force you to hit the jump to actually read it.
